I’m just starting to get my head around this. I’ve been a reader for so long but a writer? I can’t even think about applying the title author to myself, but I write, so yes, I can handle writer.
Is it all that unusual to want to liberate the scenes in your mind? I don’t think so. If you read, the chances are, you’ve thought about writing.
Writing well, is another story. Writing anything that someone else will want to read is another matter again. But writing for yourself, for the pleasure it brings… yes, I’m a writer.
