Admitting to being a writer

Han Solo from Star Wars
Dining Solo?

Part of traveling for work means that I sometimes find myself eating meals solo, an anomaly in my life. Like the true nerd I am, I often pull out my notebook and write while I eat.

Tonight was one of those nights, as I spend my first night of three in Ottawa.

What was different tonight is that someone stopped walked by my table twice and then stopped to ask me if I was a writer.

For the first time I did not deny it. It felt good when I said: “Yes, yes I am.”

Weird eh?

For those of you who pay the bills in some other way, how do you answer that question?

  1. I think anyone who writes is a writer. Authors are the people who have been published. That’s how I differentiate πŸ™‚

  2. I don’t know that I could comfortable say “I’m a writer” although secretly I may yearn to be so. All we can do is try, try, try though, right?
    I like your stuff, you’re very talented and I like your web stuff too.
    Thanks for following my blog as well, I hope I can provide you with some fodder for thought lol,
