Why do you write?
I get a lot of mixed reactions when I say I’m a writer and I actually find it really hard to say it. I’m not sure if I find it so hard to say, because I myself don’t really believe that I am a writer or I’m worried about speaking about my manuscript.
When people ask me, ‘What do you do?’
I want to say, ‘A great many things.’ Because it’s true. I don’t feel like I’m limited to one particular thing. I feel like my answer defines me, but I don’t want to be defined by my career or work choices. I am a writer, I am a university student, I am a mum, I am an childhood educator, but yet I am so much more than that.
Are you published and why do you like writing is a question I get all the time.
I’m not published, but I will be and why I write, well, there is a great many reasons why I write.
