Okay, so I was talking to this woman. She knew I was writing and had been pursuing finishing my book. She also knew I was almost finished with school.
"So what are you going to do with your degree once you get out of school?" she asked.
I had to stop and think. Because I wasn't sure. Because I was planning on writing. You know - becoming a writer.
"Well, I can become a therapist." I mean really? (I'd have to go back to school and get my major - *cringe*) OR do I want to make up worlds where anything can happen?
"At least you have a hobby of writing." She smiled, unknowing what an impact her words had made on me.
It made me think. Do I really see writing as just a hobby?
No. *eyes narrowing* I don't. Writing is so much more to me and I see it as more than just something to pass the time with.
(Imaginary superhero cape flowing behind me.) "I am not just a hobby writer." (please use super-laundry-girl voice). "I am a writer." *hair blowing in the wind, hand raised holding powerful thesaurus of justice* I don't know why I always see myself as a writer-super-hero, but I do.
For me, I see myself as more then just a hobby-writer. Much more. I am a writer.
How do you see yourself?
