I Am A Writer!

26 Jul

I was happily walking my two lovely dog’s this morning in the sunshine, and passed two ladies who I know to say hello to. Whenever they see me out with Alf and Dodger, my dogs, they always stop to give them a bit of fuss. Of course, now the dogs know free fuss is readily available, the poor women cannot walk on by without at least a pat or two.
As it was such a lovely day, none of us were in much of a hurry and we got chatting. One of the women asked me what I do, and reluctantly I replied, “I am a writer”
Why reluctantly? because even though I have now got two novels out there, I still feel like a bit of an imposter. I can’t quite get my head around it. Writing is something I have always wanted to do. In fact, it is all I have ever wanted to do, if I’m being honest. It never feels like a job, it never feels like work. Every word I write is written with love and passion. That might sound yucky, but it is true.
I have just joined the famousfiveplus.com author’s page and I am very proud to be included as one of the gang there. My photograph is up there, along side some of the most talented authors it has ever been my privilege to read. So much talent, it makes me feel very humble. To be included amongst them is very exciting for me.
I hope in time I will say “I am a writer” and not feel self conscious or an imposter. It has taken me a long time to get this far. I live in hope that one day I will stop having all these self doubts and start believing!
One final note… the very nice dog loving ladies I spoke to today have Kindles, and wrote down the details of my two books, Poppy Days and Angel Girls. Who knows, I might even have inadvertently drummed up a couple of sales.
