When Your Writing Conflicts with Your Personal Views

When I began writing I wanted to make a difference. I am a High School English teacher by profession, but educationally my background is in psychology with an emphasis on criminal justice. I intended to study the science of crime. I wanted to understand what made a human being kill another human being and I wanted to get killers off the streets. However, life took a turn and I became a teacher. It’s not a decision I regret. I absolutely love my job, but writing allows me to explore the passion I walked away from.
