[The Story] Becoming a Writer

You can become a professional in any field… if you put in the work. There’s nothing glamorous here: you must develop the mental fortitude, discipline, necessary character traits, and endure through hardships to become qualified. Through college, you should be able to better yourself enough to get ‘the job’ on your own. No freebies! In “The Story,” John [left] and Trishna [right] have career aspirations. The “College Arc” explores their paths of developing career/life disciplines.

Spoilers?: Minor (studying character/life development)

How might that answer be addressed in “The Story?”

Gotta look presentable. “Where’s my purse?” Warm up the car. Now I’m late. Today’s gonna be a grind.
