Writers are frail people, who become entangled in their own perceptions of themselves. Do you agree?
I think of myself as a writer. When it comes to my writings, especially my blogs and my books, I am a delicate rose, whose petals may fall off if you stare too long. Listening to a podcast, which included the interviews of two writers, I could not help but think of the frail nature of writers. We can write all our lives, but we do not acknowledge ourselves as a writer until we have a career, which includes the word writer.
Am I a writer if I do not get paid for it? What constitutes the assignment of the title writer? If I have a blog, am I a writer? Do I have to wait until other people acknowledge me as a writer?
Writers are sensitive. I am guilty of not wanting to share a piece with anyone, especially after someone has disagreed with my writing or my thoughts. Do I need to be sensitive about my work?
Are you a frail writer? If you consider yourself a writer, why? If you write but do not consider yourself a writer, why?
