I Am A Writer!

I don't know how many people have said to me, "When are you going to write a book?" Others have said, "You're a great writer. You should do something with it." I really am surprised at the number of people who read here, then say they keep coming back because they love to read me. Really? Because when I read back things I've written they seem dry, choppy and not really what I intended to say. I want my readers to be able to see in their heads what I've put to words and I don't know if I accomplish that.

But I do know this: In my heart I'm a writer. I have the right to pick up a pen - or put fingers to the keyboard - and write about anything I can dream up. Today I've taken a step. I've joined:

The first step in becoming a writer is declaring (admitting?) that I am one. So this is me, standing on the big rock in our yard, fist in the air, announcing for the world to hear, "I am a writer!"

How about you? Are you someone who wants to be more than just a closet writer? Join the challenge with me. It's simple. Just click on the badge above!

Woohoo! I am doing this too and I am super excited, especially since I am about to launch my writer website. Came very timely, and now I have the writing ideas I need for the rest of June. Okay, let's keep each other accountable, what do you think?
