How to define Writer
A writer is anyone who creates a written work, though the word usually designates those who write creatively or professionally, as well as those who have written in many different forms.
A Writer – a person who is able to write and has written something
A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people… Thomas Mann
writing – the act of creating written works; “writing was a form of therapy for him”
writing – the work of a writer; anything expressed in letters of the alphabet (especially when considered from the point of view of style and effect); “the writing in her novels is excellent”; “that editorial was a fine piece of writing

What does it mean for me to say I’m a writer? It means a long held dream given its rightful place. It means I’m owning more of the pieces of myself.. what makes me tick, excites me,describes how I view the world around me.
To proclaim “I’m a writer” is pretty bold, because I attribute that title with success… of the published kind. Can you be a writer if no one is reading your material? Am I a writer by virtue of publishing my words here on this blog? No, that makes me a blogger and I suspect some would argue they’re not the same.
When I listed myself as an aspiring writer recently I was offering up my dream, my desire and holding my breath in case someone challenged that statement. If self definition is the name of the game then no one can challenge me. I am what I say I am.. what I choose to be and what I create.
I am creating a Writer. Word by word, page by page, day by day. I hope to see my pages published. I hope to have someone say of me, She’s a pretty good writer. And, for now I find satisfaction in writing just for writing. For me. Those times when the words just flow and they look right and sound right.. pure bliss.
