I have learned languages, found lovers and love, failed and succeeded more times than I can count. And through all of that, through the ups and downs, the adventures, experiences, fears and joys, I have always, always been a writer.
I always feel the need to explain myself, as if I have to justify that I’ve just called myself a writer, even though that’s exactly what I am.
Well, this is it. This is the part of being a writer that sucks so much worse than the movies show. This part hurts.
