Write Race

So...ever have the feeling you accidentally ticked the whole world off, but you have no clue what you did? That's been me lately...hence I babble too much, which likely only makes matters worse.

And after this weekend, when I felt like the undiscovered-but-kinda-OK writer at the cusp of wonderful things, I'm embarrassed I sent anything off at all, and once again wish I could just stop *wanting* to write, since I'm not nearly as good as a whole LOT of far more deserving folks who are also trying to get published.

But I'magonna post this anyhow...written *before* I hit the downward slope again.

A real writer...

I have contemplated the meaning of that phrase, title, or what have you, several times over the years.

What I have come to believe is that, if you actively write, no matter in a journal, a blog, a column, in magazines, novels or whatnot, you are a writer.

Now, you may not get a prestigious title, win any awards or simply get to say that you are published, but to me, at least, the line is that you actively write. There are plenty of people out there that don't or can't doesn't even pass into their minds to do such a thing.

I don't know, I guess I just lump us all together (yeah, I did say us) whether its an occasional hobby, a part-time job or full-time career...we are all real writers.

So, don't let someone (or yourself) convince you of anything different!
