IWSG: I am a Writer!

This is my first post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group.  Visit the link to join in the fun or to visit other blogs from the list.

I recently read a great book by Jeff Goins, You Are a Writer. The book is very encouraging and gives some great advice for beginning writers. Basically it's like a pep talk.

Probably the best advice the book shares is the need to proclaim your writer com. The author writes that it is important to admit out loud that you are a writer. So here goes.....

I am a writer. Even though I did not win NaNoWriMo.....again......for the fourth year.

I am a writer. Even though I fear that I will never finish a manuscript.

I am choosing to focus on the positive. This November, I wrote the most words I have ever written during a NaNo. I believe I can complete my current novel by the end of winter break. I love writing and have a lot of new ideas to share with the world.

I am a writer!


  1. Hi Loca. Welcome to the IWSG.
    There is immense power in the written/spoken word...
    This reminds me of the self-fulfilling prophecy... what you think/say, is what you are! So yes, you ARE a writer!
    Congratulations on claiming ownership of your writerly status!
