I just made myself smile when I read the following post from five months ago: Note 169 – When are you qualified to say ‘I am a writer’? as I feel so different now. It was difficult back then to say ‘I am a project manager, and also a writer‘ whenever anyone asked what I do. I used to say things like ‘I’m sort of a writer’ or ‘I’m trying to be a writer…’ which just sounds so wishy-washy!
When I am asked the question now, it just slips off my tongue like I have been a writer for years. I feel proud to be a writer. Funny thing is, I have been a writer for years but only in the last few months have I felt confident enough to say it.
Let’s move things on a step…
As the above worked, I wonder if I should start repeating a few other things to myself like ‘I earn money from my writing…’ or ‘. ‘I am a published writer…’. How about that? Let’s see if, in the same time span, I’ll be referring back to this post with a smile too.
Think about your writing wishes. Then turn them into realistic objectives or goals with a deadline.
