Happy Monday Besties!
As a writer when I first started this journey towards writing I didn’t own it. I wasn’t sure what to call myself. When does one call themselves a writer, a creator, an artist? There are moments where you must decide when you’ve taken the plunge and the fact that you’re never leaving.
I read Stephen King’s book On Writing and immediately I was hooked. He told me I had to decide when I called myself a writer. For me it was writing and completing my first draft. There, I had a goal, something to work towards. When I completed my first full draft I was over the moon. Officially a writer, someone who is going to write for the rest of their lives, I had unleashed the beast.
Own who you are, own who you wanna be, own the goals it takes to get there.
What stage are you at in owning it?
