I lost my job about a year ago. It was devastating. I was then on a rollercoaster of a ride for the next eight months where I went on 38 (yes, 38) interviews where I was told I wasn’t right for job after job after job. To be told you aren’t good enough is heartbreaking. I began to lose hope. I began to wonder if I would ever find a job. To understand who I am as a person, you have to first understand I am very sensitive. I always have been.
Hello, I am Tyler. (T. G. to my readers.) The most frightening thing to admit to someone is that you are sensitive. It makes you vulnerable. Well, now that it’s out of the way, let’s move on... I am a sensitive guy. I am not always proud of it. But after getting rejected by 38 potential employers it began to really bother me.
My parents were and are extremely supportive of me, and finally one day they told me I should try to get my novel published. I tried desperately to do this while in college but was unsuccessful.
Well, I pulled out my thumb drive and looked it over. The story was finished but needed some cleaning up. I changed a few things and tightened up some loose ends. I printed it out and had my mother, grandmother and father look it over. It’s always frightening when you have your family look over something. You never know how they are going to react to it.
