Have you ever wondered what would someone write about you? This question definitely means very little to the done and dusted. I’m talking about the writers who have just started or are still in that state of whether or not to consider themselves as one. I remember how long it took me to call myself a writer. I still don’t find it any less amusing than the bungee jump I never took.
There’s a difference in starting to write and calling yourself a writer. When you refer yourself by this label, you are pretty damn sure what you mean. And, it’s not just about labelling for yourself but more about the confidence that comes with this art form. More to say, it adds the voice of a writer to your approach. Meh, I realise this is purely perceptional and uniquely devastating.
The tables will turn when you start writing. But, on the other side of this table – you are still an amateur. Am I a writer?
