Eight days before November 1st, I made a commitment to attempt NaBloPoMo. I was scared, anxious, excited. I wondered if anyone would actually care and read this blog. I wondered if I was a writer at all. Thirty days later, I have proof that I am a writer. When I was in graduate school, one of my instructors wrote a book in which he said, “Everyone who writes is in the process of becoming a writer.” It was the most freeing words I’d heard, ever. Before that period, I had an extremely low self-esteem about my abilities as a writer. Thanks to this challenge, my self-esteem as a writer has grown.
What I learned and accomplished in the past 30 days is:
1. I am a writer.
2. Others did read it, in fact I went from a strong 25 followers to 578!
3. I got Freshly Pressed.
