Tuesday Choice Words

What did you want to be when you grew up? By the time I was seven years old, I knew I wanted to be a writer. Other jobs appealed to me from time to time - veterinary assistant, actor, teacher - but I always returned to my love of writing. I don't know exactly what it is about me that made me into a writer - imagination, persistence, certain life events - but those things have certainly added to the mix that is me.

Elizabeth Berg's article What It Takes to Be a Writer on Medium explains her thoughts on this topic. Have a look.

  1. Sometimes I forget Berg's adage to "Admit joy." Thanks for reminder.

  2. When I was little, I wanted to be a writer. And I am. :)

    I don't think I've read a thousand books, but I'm getting there. ;)
