I am a Writer.

I am in the process of reinventing my life, perhaps my 30 year milestone ushered the newfound urge to embrace who I really have been this whole time. My confidence is driven by my desire to do good, not only for myself but to put into the world good things, so there is more good than there was before I came. And no, I will not make any religious assertions, so there is relief there. I do respect other’s belief systems, as any open-minded and thoughtful person would.
So here it is:

I am a writer.

Whew, that felt good! So I write that a lot, because it helps me remember that I am a writer. The psychological effect of writing this is reinforcing and reassuring. Now when people ask me to tell them about myself I am getting better at admitting I am a writer. Wait a minute, did I just reference the word “admit”? As if it is this problem I need to get over? Well, this word is inserted quite intentionally. I struggle with the idea of doing “some” “thing”, making something, or being someone, or whatever it is that people need to do/be in order to make $. Actual dollars. Can I just be what I want? If I get paid for it, even better! So I admit, I am a writer, and hopefully there will be someone who knows someone who needs a writer. Perhaps, my name will be mentioned, and if I am lucky, so will my information so I can be contacted about said writing work. *wink<nudge<nudge

Until I get this writing work I seek, I will write anyway. As Carol Tice encourages, if you want to be a successful writer, "write a lot, keep writing, write some more". So I write, a lot, and I keep writing, and then I write some more. While I am admitting my deep dark secrets here's one to chew on and I will also admit, my perfect English grammar is on it's way (in other words, it's not here yet). However, my interest in the nature of this world, paired with my observations, and my experience working with the public, I think we will find enough topics in common for many of you to engage and appreciate my presence in this whole "blogosphere" world thingy. I know you know what I mean… Everyone started from the beginning one day, right?

So look past those little perfect english grammar book mistakes, and look into the content. What it is that is being said, and question yourself… is your writing perfect?

    • Thanks for helping me! This is a new experience and my devoted attention it spread across many different mediums right now, but my passion is screaming so I am pursuing it! Now, I must keep writing and write some more;) btw- nice site!

  1. Yup. It is a great thing to write. I finally committed myself almost two years ago now to write about what I care for most and the experience has been most gratifying and I have learned a lot (and a bit of grammar)
