Declaration Day – I Am a Writer


The cockiness behind that title is a little very uncomfortable to me.  This is especially true because I always thought and said that I hated writing throughout school.  I even opted for comprehensive exams in graduate school over writing a thesis for this very reason.

The thing is I’ve always had a lot to say.  That abundance of words was never accompanied by the patience to put them down on paper or a Word document.  There has also been a serious lack of follow through on my part.  My part??  Who else would be responsible for this happening, or not?

Today I am embarking on a 15 day challenge under the direction of Jeff Goins.  I will be working on the 15 Habits of Great Writers.  This is day 1!  What is the mission for today?  Declare myself openly and proudly to be the writer that I am.

I AM A WRITER!

There, I’ve said it, with an exclamation point no less!  I’ll use another just for effect and to bolster my confidence!  Isn’t confidence a big part of success in whatever endeavor we happen to choose?  It’s getting my head in the game, psyching myself up, putting my game face on!  Bring on the adverbs and adjectives.  I’m ready –

  4. It's not cocky to say you are something that's a part of you. It's simply honest! :)

    Way to go!
