There I said it. I've always been told that if you really want something, you've got to profess it. So that's what I'm doing. And I am a writer. I've been writing since I was old enough to realize that all my "imaginary" friends could be put to paper and a real world would emerge.
Though I'm not exactly back to the point I'd like to be, I'm well on my way. The more I write, especially on this blog, the more my confidence is beginning to grow. I'm loving it too. I'm starting to feel like I'm accomplishing something real. That's a huge deal for me. I'm getting past that whole "I don't think I can do this anymore" stance. I'm starting to get into this whole "I think I can, I think I can" mode.
I know I have a long road ahead of me, but it's one I'm starting to get excited about once again. The more I work toward achieving my goal, the happier I'm becoming. I just have to keep at a steady pace. I want to just jump in with both feet and go for it, but I also know that with not writing for over a year, I've got to make sure I know the in's and out's of the industry. One thing I have learned is that trends change quickly on the Internet. What was the "in" thing a year ago may be a huge no-no today.
I will get there, one way or another. It's going to take me some time to get there, but everyday is another step in the "write" direction. I can't give up and I have to keep moving forward. After all, I can do this because I am a writer!
