Who's a Writer

A week off and no writing, can I still call myself a writer? I've opened the document and stared at it but no actual words flowed onto the page, so again am I a writer? Must I always be in the mists of writing something? But then I think the better question is this, why do I believe that I must be adding words to the page every day to be considered a writer?

I think it's my own fear that I will let time slip away from me and not complete the manuscript. How many times have I spoken to someone who claims to be a writer but has never completed anything? They play at being a writer and like to strut around shouting to the world their story arcs, tragic characters, and the such and I don't want to be them. I want to create and complete the story. I don't want to be full of talk and no action.

Well, that settles it; yep, I'm still a writer. My own insecurities were getting the better of me. Now that I figured that out maybe I should do a little writing?

And Away I Go,

The Writer
