I am

by Stacey

a writer.

Typing this still makes me sweat.

Why? I can easily say I am a daughter, a friend, a wife, a mother. For years, I called myself a speech therapist, a reading specialist, a literacy consultant, a stay at home mom. Labeling myself is easy.

Why then, is this label of writer so hard?

I stopped seeing clients and taking consulting jobs this year so that I could write. Writing has always been that thing that I would get to when I had time and I knew I wasn’t ever making time for it. So I finally took the plunge and made the time.

And it has actually worked. I have grown my blog following. I have published more than a dozen articles in regional parenting publications.

And still, when people ask me what I do I say I am a mom and I am doing some writing.

I wish I had a wise answer at the end of this post but I don’t. I am still asking why it is so hard to say…

I am a writer.
