Yes, I’m a Writer

I still have a hard time calling myself a “writer” – like I just don’t believe it until I’ve got a solid, hard-bound book sitting on my shelf that’s been recommended by Oprah and the New York Times Book Review. Or something.

But here’s something that makes me a little more confident in calling myself a “writer.” Look closely.

If I’ve written/typed so much that several keys on my keyboard are completely blank – missing their letters – and at least 5 others are getting ready to disappear (on left side – not in photo) – then, yeah, I think I’m entitled. I really can’t deny it. The proof is right there, literally at my fingertips!
