Because I Say So
For years I’ve wanted to be a writer. Always waiting for that moment when someone else was going to tell me I’ve arrived.
When I finish my first book . . .
When I get an agent . . .
When I get published . . .
When I get my first royalty check . . .
When I win an award . . .
When I’m asked to be a speaker/presenter . . .
But there is no “when.” I’m a writer because I write words and create stories and characters and because, well, because I say so.
So far I have accomplished some of those items on that list. And others, I have not. The thing is, as soon as I cross something off I’m sure I’ll want to add something on. Another “when” to prove to myself.
Nope. Not going there.
I am a writer. And if you say so, then so are you.
That is all.
