Did this happen to you? It happens to a lot of people. It happened to me.

Well-intentioned parents and career counselors push students toward law school because it's an established, (relatively) predictable path to a good living. Whether you've been a lawyer for 12 months or 12 years, you've probably already achieved some degree of financial success and social approbation. The only problem is that you're completely miserable.

You're spending way too much time working on things you don't care about, and you feel like your creative spark has been systematically stripped away over three years of law school and the years since then. You've learned that plugging names into boilerplate is not writing. You've learned that you're not cut out for this life.

You want out. And you want in - to a big, juicy life filled with meaningful work that inspires you.
