Five Minute Friday: Writer

The word for Five Minute Friday today is writer.


I write. Therefore, I am a writer.

I don't often think of myself as a writer. It's not my go-to answer for the question: What do you do?

Often, I say I am an at-home mom. I homeschool. I work hard to save money so we can stretch a dollar.

But writer, that comes later. Even then, I don't leave it at writer. Instead, I tell others I have a blog. Writer is implied but not often said.

But I am a writer. It is in me to write. I want to write. I need to write. I am a writer.

I shy away because I am not a known writer. I am learning and feel unsure of my writing.

I often think of myself as a writer learner.

That whole thing about putting my writing out there and proclaiming it as good. Promoting myself. I'm not quite there.

I suppose most writers struggle with that.

A writer is always writing and re-writing.

That's me. I write.

I am a writer.

Note: Thanks, BunBun, for taking the picture.

    I don’t know what it is about the dreams and gifts that God has given me but so often I feel afraid to claim them or at the very least unsure. Like if I speak it, it will disappear. I am learning if I don’t embrace it, it is more likely to fade away. Thank you for embracing your gift and sharing it here. I’m dropping by from Five Minute Friday. Thanks for sharing your gift. 🙂

      Thank you for your encouragement. I am just starting to crack open the door of dreams. Fear has kept that door closed too long.
