Born To Be A Writer

I am a writer!

Posted on February 28, 2011 at 11:55 AM

I work nightshift. When I am done at work, I take out my pc chair and my little IKEA table and I open my laptop. I heat my supper and I write and eat. Then write, serve customers and write some more.

One of my regulars came in the other day and he's like, 'You watching movies?'

"Nope, writing.'

'Homework?'

"Nope, my book.' Proud I was of saying it.

"You write?" Scorn.

'Yeah!"

"Oh yeah? What do you have published?" Sneer.

Basically, he belittled me. I would like to say that I spit in his face then hauled him out of the store. But I didn't. Why not? Well, I physically can't for one. But seriously, what's the point? Years ago, I wouldn't have been so proud. I used to sort of tuck my head between my shoulders and self consciously say, "Well, maybe one day I plan to write.' Then change the subject really fast. I don't know why. I just did.

So I patiently told dweeb face that I was in the process of getting published. He laughed and said what if you never get published? I shrugged. "I'm still proud of what I've done. Being proud makes me happy and writing makes me happy. Period.

So, I'm a writer. Period. :0)
