You'd think I was a writer, or something.
Does anyone else have trouble saying the words "I Am A Writer?" Usually it comes out like this.
Someone: "So, you're a writer, right?"
Me: "Yeah, well, um. Yeah, I guess I've written some stuff."
And believe me that's considerably better than it was a couple of years ago, when I would say something like, "yeah, well, someday."
No. I AM A WRITER. And if you write, YOU ARE A WRITER. Not you want to be a writer. Not you hope to be a writer. If you write, YOU ARE A WRITER.
Say it with me, now. I AM A WRITER.
And if you in my workshop on Thursday, we're going to be practicing *gasp* saying it out loud.
