Today is the first day of Jeff Goins' Becoming a Great Writer series. I am looking forward to this but I can tell already that it is going to be a stretch for me. Day 1 and I am already faced with a HUGE challenge...Declaring myself a writer.
I have always thought of a writer as someone who is already published. Even when my boyfriend has told other people that I am a writer, I tend to cringe. I don't feel worthy. When I first started blogging I was so excited until I realized that people were actually going to READ what I had written. YIKES!
Jeff says that if you have written, then you are already a writer. So I am here today to declare to you that I AM A WRITER! Hopefully we will see if it is as they say, admitting is the hardest part.
Oh, maybe that is talking about something else :)
I have already talked to my dad and co-workers about my blog, but they have politely blown me off. My aunt has shared her writing experiencees with me and encouraged me along the way. I am not comfortable sharing my writing with them yet, but hopefully one day I will. Until then, I will keep putting thoughts down on paper.
I am looking forward to a challenging 15 days. Are you up for the challenge? If so, you can get more info and sign up here
