I have been writing since I was a child. In elementary school, I wrote a book in my gifted class. Eventually, I obtained a Master’s degree in English. I have published a poetry book, a journal, and a iBook textbook. Can I now claim that I am a writer? I have kept blogs for years. Comments are rare. Now, I am constantly monitoring my stats on my main two blogs. When I notice a decline or that no one has read a post, I feel a sting of disappointment.
Could my perception of what and who a writer is be false? Am I a writer? Can I claim that I am a writer, even though no one is walking up to me and asking for my autograph? Should I even possess a perception of what a writer is?
Am I a writer?
