I am every meme about mentally correcting your grammar, except I take it a step further and mentally restructure your sentences too. It took me more than two decades to realize not everyone looks at words and sees how they fit together like I do? Oh.
For a minute I thought my love of words and their pairing with a melody translated into a career in music. (Side stage, not on stage.) But after three years in the industry, I quit what I once referred to as my "dream job."
Now, I spend my days writing and nannying and still listening to music – lyrics first.
