It's the first Wednesday of the month, which is the Insecure Writer's Support Group's day to post about our insecurities and encourage each other.
I had a realization today. Please stay with me as I take you along on the train of thought that lead to it.
Someone I know posted something stupid on Facebook. Big shock. But it made me think of a twitter post I saw once that said, "FB is where you lie to your friends, twitter is where you're honest with complete strangers."
There is definitely some truth to that. It got me thinking about how I rarely, if ever, post anything on FB about what I'm writing, revising, submitting, etc. But I have tweeted about such things.
I would not have the guts to introduce myself as a writer. I'm not even close to there yet. But my Twitter profile says "mother of four, trying to find time to write during the chaos."
So yeah, I basically do introduce myself as a writer there.
Maybe that means I'm closer than I thought to being able to introduce myself as a writer, maybe not. But I did find it interesting, it was something I hadn't thought about before.
So, how about you? Do you introduce yourself as a writer? If not, when do you think you will? If so, at what point were you able to do so confidently?
