The Writer

I’m a writer. I write. When I’m not writing I’m out living my crazy life collecting experience to feed my writing.

I am an author of an unpublished book. Or two. Two small books. One big one? Aww, hell. I write.

I am a poet. I write poems. Not as many as I used to, but still. I write them. Still a writer.

I’ve modeled. I’m willing to model again. Does that make me a model? Don’t tell anyone. They’ll think I’m thin and beautiful.

I’m a photographer. I’ve taken photographs. Evidently I’ve taken thousands of them. So, I suppose I’m a photographer, too. I even got paid once.

I’m a singer. I sing. Mostly in the car these days. Or in the front yard when I’ve had a bit to drink. But I’ve done it in front of a crowd. With a band. I think some people even clapped once.

I’m a fire spinner. I spin fire. I’m a novice really, but I can do it without lighting my own head on fire. (Knocks on wood.)

I’m a gardener.  I plant things in the dirt and watch their green shoots spring from the ground eventually blossoming and fruiting and feeding my family.  Does it really get much better than that?

I was a pig farmer, too. I owned pigs. I lived on a farm. So if we follow the same logic above I was indeed a pig farmer.

I was a vegetarian. I’ve returned to the world of omnivores. Does that make me a reformed or former vegetarian? Or do I just revert to omnivore status and pretend it never happened?

I was a data analyst for ten years. I thought I couldn’t get away.  Then I became a Mommy, and the decision was made for me.  Now, I have time to blog, write, wax poetic, take photographs, create crazy art, and work on publishing my novel.

My life is beautiful.

  1. I am thoroughly enjoying your blog. Glad to have found it.

  2. You can never tell about the omnivore market. It’s pretty speculative. 😉

    I’m passing the Moments Matter award along, for a moment shared this morning. Thank you. 🙂

No Guts…No Story
“And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.” ~ Sylvia Plath
