Recently, I wrote about why Journalism wasn’t for me but that doesn’t mean that all that education and experience was a waste. I learned a lot of valuable lessons, habits, and information during my time in Journalism. Though I won’t pursue it as a career, I can appreciate what it taught me.
Let me start by saying that I took a much longer break from writing than I had originally intended.
I needed the space and time to figure out how to write again because somewhere in the Journalism program, I lost my voice. I was so busy trying to “get it right” and learn the rules that I forgot the most important thing, I love writing.
