Another meme: My favorite type of writing

Jess over at the JM Writing blog tagged me for a new meme: What's my favorite type of writing?

This is almost too easy to be a meme. :o) My favorite type of writing is... fiction. Of course, now I have to explain why I write so little of it.

Basically, as a writer who has only been freelancing for two years (full time for a year and a half) I have discover that it pays to follow the money, rather than my dreams. Basically, I'm achieving my dreams in steps. The first step was to make it as a writer, which I did when I worked for ten very long months as a technical writer. The second step was to "go freelance," which I did in October of 2005. The next step will be to devote more of my time to writing fiction, but before I do that I need to establish an income that will let me divide my attentions being directly-paying and potentially non-paying pursuits.

So there you have it: Fiction is my favorite kind of writing. And hopefully, someday (soon) I'll be doing more of it.

I'm returning the favor and tagging...
