For a girl who’s blogged before, I’m nervous about this.
Doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone. Taking risks like that – that is what life is. – Amy Poehler
That’s me, nervously pointing at the computer. Or giving a thumbs up? Or maybe both…
I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to be at home rather than trudge in a car, bus or train to a full time job. It’s the opportunity to follow my dream, and become a writer.
The thing is, the hardest thing for me, as I make my way down this new road is to call myself a writer. I question: When will I actually be a writer?
Last week, as I was volunteering at the kiddo’s school someone asked “do you stay at home?” My answer immediately was “yes”, with a quick under the breath “and I’m doing some writing as well.”
My hope is that very soon I’ll be answering those questions, with “Yes, I work at home as a writer” and not feel like a fraud.
Is there something you are thinking about taking a chance on? What is it? What is holding you back?
