I came across this advice many years ago on Kristen Lamb’s blog, and it turned on a lightbulb in my head!
Was it uncomfortable in the beginning to call myself a 'writer’? You betcha it was! But it shifted something in my mind, and helped me evolve by leaps and bounds.
The battle is different now.
I self-published a niche book recently, and am still learning to call myself an author. So to find this post today was another lightbulb moment for me.
Blake, I have only read a few of your posts, but they are all impressive in an honest, cut-to-the-chase way. Thank you for sharing this one. ☺
