Wednesday in chat several of us were talking about how sometimes the hardest part of writing was the showing up and putting backside in chair. Seems like there's always 900 other things that need to be done or we're not in the mood or well, you know. There's plenty of things we can blame for not getting the writing done.
But, in the words of Louis L'Amour, "If you wait for inspiration, you're not a writer, but a waiter." I don't know about you, but "I'm a writer." sounds a LOT better than "I'm a waiter."
And speaking of being a writer, how many of you actually tell people that you're a writer when they ask what you do? It was really difficult the first few times, especially before I had anything published because the next question is "What have you had published?" or some form thereof.
So here's today's challenge. Don't wait for inspiration. Get the backside in the chair and write. Also, if you are writing, you're a writer so the next time someone asks, proudly tell them you are indeed a writer.
