My name is Catherine, and I’m a Writer

Does that sound strange to you? It has been very difficult for me to embrace my new status after yearning for it all my life. I still feel a bit of a fraud when I tell strangers that I am a writer, despite the fact that I have published stories, a novel in development, and I write articles for a web magazine.

Why is it so difficult to confess? I always seem to justify myself to people, and I don’t know why. Well I do know, it is down to my upbringing and the peers of my society. That’s not to say I blame people specifically. It is just a fact that I have been raised with the belief that to be a success I must work for a ‘big corporation’ and have a job with a fancy title and a large salary. But these things eluded me for years and I felt a bit of a failure to be honest.

So I decided to dust off my computer, stop mucking about on the internet, and do some writing. And do you know what? It actually worked! I feel so empowered now, and so excited about all of the positive changes happening around me, and the writer in me wants to ignore my practical responsibilities, and just write.

It hasn’t been an easy journey and I am still battling the voices of negativity inside my head and in some people around me. But now I am finally starting to live my dream career, and it feels fantastic!

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
