Did you know that if you write, then you are a writer? Pretty great, isn’t it?

On the flipside, though, if you do not write then you are not a writer.

Don’t be an “aspiring writer”. Just be a writer. Yes yes, I know, writing is a pain. It never stops being a bit of a pain. But I’m certain that you can manage a few sentences today. Even if no one else believes in you, I totally do!

    Hey Pike – didn’t realize you’d changed your format over here. Great to see that you’re still blogging and that you’ve got a blog focused on writing. Will definitely swing by to see the progress. I miss blogging – but find that angsting over my posts and worrying about responses (or the lackthereof) eats up too much of my energy. That’s probably just a “me” thing though. If I hadn’t started blogging (again) back in 2008 I probably wouldn’t have started writing again.

    500 words a day – every day – even if they suck. Especially when they suck. Keep being awesome!

    Hey Windpaw; glad to see you’re still around! I’ve slowed down a bit on the blogging front as well but I’m trying to pick it back up again.

    500 words a day is a great goal. Best of luck!
