I'm a WRITER! YEAH!!!!
I’m a writer! Now I can devote as many hours a day as I want to writing if I want. I will tell people that’s what I am when they ask, especially the federales – I’m writing a travel guide for older womyn travel by themselves.
I had intended to be a writer since I was about 12. I think I wrote about it previously.
Then I got pregnant at 18 years old, delivered my baby at 19 1/2, and it wasn't until many, many years later, walking down the street, I remembered - oh yah, right, I was going to be a writer.
I once had a roommate who wrote every day from 10am until 2pm. She would not let anyone talk to her, disturb her, interrupt her. At the time, I found it quite annoying and even irritating. I couldn't understand how she could arrange her life to commit so much time to writing.
I was fighting envy. I had a child to support.
Many, many, many more years later, and a LONG time after I have no more children to support, here I am finally, able and about to spend several hours a day of my life writing.
Able and determined to call myself a writer.
