It's another Lisa-Jo Baker Five Minute Friday http://lisajobaker.com/ (she just wrote an awesome book)--- write for five minutes on the word given. Today's word: Writer.
What does it mean to be a “writer?” Does it mean you have to be published? Does it mean you have to have perfect grammar? Does it mean you need your peers approval or better yet acclamation to bear the title? Do you have to get paid to do it?
Or can it just be a hobby? One you may or may not be any good at but brings you joy...or at least satisfaction... I've never really considered myself a writer. But now writing is a large portion of my job. Does that make me a writer? I don't know. But I like to do it.
I think a writer is one who records thoughts, stories, events, emotions and more. Many people do it really well. Many writers are able to touch their readers and change them. If I can do this even for one person, I would be happy. But in the meantime, I enjoy recording thoughts, stories, events and emotions.
