Hi, I’m Tim. With this blog, I share my reflections on writing. We’ll talk about finding your calling. We’ll talk about turning that passion into your business. And sometimes, we’ll just talk about life.
I’ve done a lot of things in my career, but there’s one thing I always come back to. Writing.
When I’m writing, I’m 100% in the moment, and it’s where I feel free.
How about you?
What’s your creative outlet? In what endeavor can you get completely lost in, where nothing else in the world matters at that moment?
Everyone has a creative gift to share with the world. You possess a skill or talent that someone in the world needs.
If you’re not sure what your gift is, I want to help you discover it. And if you already know your passion, I want to help you unveil it to the world and make it your rewarding profession.
Who is Tim Maxwell?
Here’s the quick version:
Currently, I live with my wife Michelle and we have 7 children (not a typo!), our dog Telula, and our cat Georgia Flip Flops, who was aptly named by our 4-year-old daughter. I live for God, family, friends and food! I also love to write.
Here’s the slightly longer version:
I grew up a “Navy Brat” until my family settled down in the high desert of California during my freshman year of high school. I became the high school correspondent for our local newspaper and it’s when I first discovered how much I loved writing.
Later I got married and attended Fresno State University and I got my first professional writing job. I worked for the local Fox television affiliate, writing about 10 stories a day for a one-hour newscast.
I absolutely loved this period of my life. I was writing for a living and doing what I loved while also enjoying life with my family.
After college, we moved to Los Angeles and I worked for the next several years in post-production and digital media for 20th Century Fox and NBC/Universal. I’ve been fortunate to work on exciting movies like Fight Club and popular television shows like The X-Files.
At the same time, I hustled on the side, creating several online businesses. Some were very successful, most were not.
I also did a lot of ghostwriting, mostly creating ebooks and articles.
A few years ago, my job was downsized. I stopped all my online ventures. I was down, but thankful and blessed for my family.
Now, I’m writing this blog. It’s funny, after all these years, I’m going back to the beginning. I’m writing every day, and enjoying life with my family.
This blog is about that journey. It’s about being a writer.
I’m excited your here and I hope you’ll be a part of the community.
I know you have a creative gift too and I want to help you get your message out to the world.
The world will be better for it, and so will you.
