I’m a writer.
You get that sentence on it’s own. It stands on hard-won ground. It has taken me years to write or say that I’m a writer without cringing or equivocating or making excuses.
So, I’m a writer.
I’m a lot of other things, too, like a metaphorical and literal cat herder, a bullshit detector, a Reiki practitioner, a neurodiverse person, and on and on. Everybody is a lot more than just one thing, but we tend to want to distill it all down to that one thing, don’t we?
