I am a writer.
I know what you’re thinking, “Well, obviously you’re a writer. I’m reading words you’ve written right now.” Fair point. However, what I mean is that I am more than the writer of this blog. I am a writer of children’s literature. Prior to today I would have inserted the word aspiring. I am an aspiring writer. But no more. I am claiming who I am and what I want to do with my life. I am standing boldly in that truth.
What caused this shift? Last week I attended an amazing writer’s workshop at the Highlights Foundation. I learned a lot about the various categories of children’s books, met other writers who have a phenomenal way with words, and spent some time getting my own ideas down on paper. It was the perfect spark to ignite my flame. So I am done with tip toeing around my dreams. I’m claiming it ALL even if I am still working to get there.
I know this is a departure from my usual content but I felt it was important to share this with you all. Book Lovers, what is your truth on this glorious Friday? What declarations are you making? What goals are you working toward? I would LOVE to hear from you!
