Really nice article. The sad truth is that I used to tell myself that I’m not a “real” writer. I would list all kinds of evidence of why I wasn’t. But part of “becoming” to me means writing every day for myself — because I need to do it, because I feel good when I’m writing. So when I committed to writing every day, that’s the point in time that I defined who I am — as you suggest. It feels great!
