You’re a writer every day. You may not write every day, but you’re a writer every day.
You have a certain way of seeing the world that never changes, regardless of how much writing you get done. As Natalie Goldberg says in Write Down the Bones – you live each moment twice, one time in and of the moment, the second time in reflection of it. It’s not a conscious decision – it’s how you’re wired.
Honor it. Be proud. Never judge. Simply run with it and be.
Now go forth, prosper, and know that your work is good.
