I wish you the best of luck as I am in the same boat. I have a healthcare background with a strong interest in the paranormal areas. I have done a lot of research into the occult/paranormal/metaphysical areas and find it to be a fascinating spiritual path. I have also done some research on world religions that I also have found quite interesting.
I have found in my attempts at writing that the endings just happen. Not sure what that means but it does make life interesting.
Better and better! I'm always up for interesting. My endings always occur further down teh merry path than the story warrants.
