I like that statement – “I am a writer”. But I’m not sure if I’ve yet acquired the right to use it! Maybe “I aspire to be a writer” would be more appropriate. The question lies in when the latter crosses the line to become the former. I have taken the first tentative steps. I completed an online article writing course with Gotham Writer’s Workshop and submitted (not yet published), my first article to the Yahoo! Contributor Network. Now, here I am. I have the best intentions to blog regularly on different themes. So, if I write daily, (as I plan to – not necessarily blog, but write something more than a shopping list somewhere!), do I qualify as a writer? Or do I have to earn money from writing in order to use that title? Either way, I am writing! It most certainly feels like I am taking the first steps of a new career. A career I have always wanted to follow but never had the courage. Writing always grabbed me in my school days but I just didn’t quite have the courage to take the leap and make it my primary source of income. Here goes!
