A Writer Is A Writer

I'm a member of the Romance Writers of America and in our chapter newsletter last month, I found a little saying and I wanted to share it with you.

A Writer is a Writer not because she writes well and easily,
because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden.
A Writer is a Writer because, even when there is no hope,
even when nothing you do shows at sign of promise,
you keep writing anyway.

This really hit home for me. I love writing. I enjoy the process, but not everything flows easily. Somedays it would be easier to just give up, throw away my work, and find something else to do. But I can't. I can't explain why. There's just something in me that keeps coming up with stories I want to write and share with my readers, so I keep writing.

Today I received a box of my newest books in the mail. Cherry Wood Place. They look great. I'm excited for you the read them, and then I knew why that saying fit.

A writer is a writer -- and I'm one of them.

Happy Reading!
