This week’s addict blogs at Imperfect Happiness. In one of her posts, she talks about the difficulty of saying “I am a writer.” So many of us have this problem– if we aren’t being paid to publish books or write articles full time, we wonder if we can really call ourselves writers– or sometimes, it’s just a question of answering other people who wonder what kind of writing we do, and whether it counts as “real.”
Charity includes the photo and comment below as proof that she is indeed a writer:
“Evidence: A pile of completed notebooks. (Not pictured: everything on my hard-drive, nearly 1,000 blog posts (and 100’s more on my other blogs, past and present), and dozens of other notebooks.)”
If you write, you are a writer! And if you write in notebooks, all the better! I like Charity’s tidy pile of spiral notebooks– they’re all very similar in style, but I don’t think any two are exactly alike!
