It’s a pretty cool hump day! I’m featured on the fab site Studio 30 Plus! It’s a community for writers! It’s full of information, support and all kinds of good stuff for the writer in you! Head on over and check it out. In my feature, I’m talking about something that took way too long to smack me over the head. Here’s a snippet of my post:

What makes a writer? I have seen this question asked in some form or another a lot lately. I’ve even asked the question of myself. It wasn’t until recently that I began to see myself as a writer. I’m not sure why it took me so long to come to this conclusion. I have been writing for my paycheck for years. I think I started writing for a living back in ’99. Why then did it take 2012 for me to just say it?

I don’t know if I thought that I hadn’t done enough to justify the title or if I thought people would have a negative reaction. I’m really not sure what it was that made me uncomfortable with calling a spade, a spade – a writer, a writer. Read the rest here.

    I enjoyed your article. I do understand. When I use to be the only supervisor on night shift, I never acknowledged myself. For me it was a denial thing. I just did not want the responsibility.

    Thanks for the link Cam! Being a writer is a though job. You should possess the ability and the talent to write things in your own perspective. And I think you really deserve to be called “A Writer:.

    you are a writer and don’t ever forget it! and a good one, too. i’ve begun to say i’m a writer simply because it’s too hard to explain ‘blogger’.
