I've never studied graphic design, but always thought I might like to try it. I finally got my wish in very random way when I got hired for a job that included designing an atlas book from scratch. It was fun. But I'm not sure I could get a graphic design job where that was the main thing I do, especially since I have no formal training. I actually had to learn the basics of corel on the go. And I've done hybrid comics for a gaia online alliance.
As to writing, I got to do a little editing, and some re-reading for my story. So I'm a bit closer to the end now. But I need to find more time to write. God, I love my story. *squee*
