Being A Writer

I don't think of myself as a writer. I have 1000 things I want to write about, and more than a few stories to tell, but I've never given myself that title. I'm not sure if I really need to change my perception of myself, or maybe I'm really not a writer, and I just happen to be someone who writes.

There's something satisfying about the sound of my fingers clicking away at my keyboard, making words appear on the screen.  But then, real writers know how to do much more than that.  They know how to take a boring subject and make it interesting by virtue of their talent and skill.

And a Mommy Blog Writer?  Well, they inspire,  make you laugh, encourage you, or share the latest tips and tricks to make life easier.  I don't know if I do any of those things.  Especially not the last thing.  While I've learned so much as a mom, I haven't learned a lot of short cuts.  Most of what I've learned as a mom tells me that the most important things take time. It's the getting up in the middle of the night, the hour long nursing sessions, it's consistency when teaching a new skill or making sure that an unacceptable behavior isn't continued.  Motherhood is not an easy job.

Still, if I'm not a writer yet, I think I'd like to be.  I think I'd like to keep working at this and honing whatever talent I may have into a bona fide skill.  I'd like to a writer.  Or at least a better Mommy Blogger.
