I am not a writer!

But I really wanna be. I can talk all day long but I suck at writing.
All my cool friends are writers. They tell me that I would be one too if I would just do it. I'm hoping that starting this blog will turn me into the writer they tell me I can be. I want to be cool like them.

I can remember writing papers in school, thinking I had done a really awesome job and being told by some wrinkled old teacher that it wasn't very good. I think I've convinced myself that she (and all my other teachers) were right. I've told myself that writing is something I'm just not good at.

I have an idea for a novel that I love to talk about but I won't allow myself to believe that I could actually write it. It's an awesome idea (I think) and I can't get it out of my head. I wish I could get my cool writer friends to write it for me. I know they couldn't get it right though because it's my story, in my head.

So now I've entered into the world of blogging. I can't wait to see what it turns into!

You are a writer. You just wrote! I'm so glad you're blogging. I think you're going to be good.

If you say so, my friend.

I say so too - and I'm almost always right (but when I'm wrong, Mani's always right - so if we both say it is so, than it must be so.

Writer: a person who commits his or her thoughts, ideas, etc., to writing

You just wrote your thoughts and ideas. You are a Writer.

Your day will be when you start to believe in yourself as we all believe in you.

Writers write it is as simple and as complicated as that. So, write.
