My name is Morgan Charles, a book-nerd who wants to help you find your passion.
In between a life, that suddenly popped up out of nowhere, I have written four novels, one of which is set to be published in 2016. My goal is to help follow your gut, find your passion, and maybe make some money from it. I mean, who doesn’t want to make money doing something they love?
One of my happiest memories as a child was the day that I got my library card. I was holding my mother to her word that the moment I could read all on my own, I would have a library card in my own name. So there we were, at the local library, ten minutes before they closed as I wrote my name on that piece of plastic.
The next day my dad was taking us out to the store when he let me in on a secret, something that practically blew my mind. “Now that you can read,” He said. “The whole world is open to you. You can do anything you want to and learn anything you want to. You could do anything you want to – you can learn anything you want to! The world is open to you!”
It was as if I was a superhero, that I had this amass power to do anything I wanted to, which for a four-year-old was intense.
So, I decided to write my first ever story. And it sucked.
It was like reading a bad Harry Potter fan-fiction – down to the phonetic spelling of the Latin spells. It hurt to re-read that notebook and look over my run on sentences, my misspelled words, and my Harry Potter Mary-sue.
But, that was the very thing that got me interested in writing. It was a bug that’s venom never worked its way out. It is a sickness that we all have within us – to create.
This is your mission, should you choose to accept it.
Of course, things get in the way: work, school, family, friends, lovers, parties, holidays. The important thing is to find a way to overcome these road blocks, to work for ourselves and on ourselves, to grow our creative businesses, to find what we are passionate about, and maybe find a way to make some money while we’re at it.
