"You guess, don't you know?"
"Okay. Positive statement. Ringing affirmative! I am a writer."
Have you seen Breakfast at Tiffany's? That conversation is running in my head on a loop.
Paul has a book of short stories published, albeit with the help of a wealthy benefactor. It's not really the point of the movie.
The main thing I do during any given day is write. I signed up for NanoWriMo. I joined a writers' group yesterday. Sort of. ...I didn't get much out of it, and there's a fee, and I can't really do Mondays usually. So maybe not.
But I wanted to check it out. I know that I don't know everything, so this might be a way to learn something. ...I mean, not so much yesterday. Literally all the information given was stuff I've seen on pinterest.
The other thing is, I do not like being social. I can do it. I was raised to do it. I dress appropriately, have good manners - although I say weird things at times - respond appropriately to others, offer encouragement. I can do it, but I come home exhausted. It costs me a lot of energy to be social. This group met in the morning, lasting through lunch, and I came home and wanted to take a nap.
I'm a writer, not a socialite.
I'm a writer, although I'm not yet published.
I'm a writer because I spend my time writing, and because I'm good at it.
I am a writer. Ringing affirmative.
