One of the most recent ones happened in the last year – I was offered a key role in the storyboard department of a new show that my studio was going to be working on, that would keep me working in that position for some time if I accepted. This happened at the same time that I was getting my writing portfolio prepared to apply for writing positions in earnest. In past years I would’ve taken the job and kept putting off trying to get into writing, but this time I decided to take the gamble. I think that was when I really knew I was ready to change my career trajectory, even if it was a bit scary. Luckily it paid off!
