(but what if I'm not really a Writer?)

What if I’m just Deluded?
And no one will ever read another word that I write?

(have I lost you already?)

I think that -
I’d still have the stories in my head
I’d still want to explore those people, and those places
(and especially all their secrets)
I know I’d still need the sheer escape of writing

So, I reckon that . . .
I’d still love it

I’d still write.

phew

So that’s ok then.

Great little post. I wonder the same things. I have these stories that just have to be explored. Well put Megan!

Ah, always good to know proper writers suffer the same things I do, we all do.

And really good to know I'm not the only one who struggles to escape the grasps of my characters :)

Me too. Oh the angst. I'm loving your post. ;)

It's probably the writers who don't worry about stuff like this who should worry. ;)

Oh how true!

He, he
I suspect that although sometimes it's tough to be a writer, it would probably be even tougher trying to stop being one
Thank you tons everybody for understanding where I'm coming from on this. Although this might well mean that you're as mad as me.
