Day One Writer’s Challenge – Declare: I am a Writer
I am a writer. There, I’ve said it. But am I, really?
Who is a writer? Is it someone who writes for a living? Or who has published works? Or is it just someone who simply, writes.
As part of the challenge I had to declare to someone that “I am a writer”. So last night I told CS my significantly ’better half’ – “I want to be a writer! Will you support me?”
“Of course!” he nodded at me from across the bed. “Remember the time I got you that PDA because you told me you wanted to write?”
Oh yes, of course. I’d forgotten about that actually because the PDA broke down just barely after a year. And I returned to writing in notebooks again.
So am I a writer? No ifs. No buts. Today, I am declaring: I write, therefore I am, a writer.
