discipline / self-confidence / writing

i AM a writer

i am a writer. this is me telling myself. i am reaffirming this because it’s what i need to do.

i have trouble owning the title; i still hesitate when saying the words. i know i’ve caused my own discomfort with a definition that is unforgiving. in my head, i’ve failed to become a writer because it’s not how i make a living. in my head, i’m not a writer because i struggle with discipline. in my head, writers have extensive credits and impressive bios.

i am a writer. this is me telling myself. i am reaffirming this because it’s what i need to do. for now.
