Today’s question, and my response:
Q: When did you know for sure that you were a writer and that writing would be a major energy focus in your life?
I didn’t begin to call myself a writer, until after I published my first piece in an online journal. Before then, I simply thought of myself as someone who dabbles in writing. But getting that affirmation that someone besides me enjoyed my writing, and saw something of value in it, gave me the confidence to keep going.
