Am I A Writer?

What does it mean when you read your own chapters that you are currently writing, and you find interesting? morning-1035090_1920

Sometimes I even ask, “I wrote that?” And it could be due to my disgust at the writing or a positive of thought of my own writing. A couple of weeks ago, I found an academic essay that I wrote when I had started college. One look at the writing and I noticed a series of errors, especially grammatical mistakes. For the first time, I complimented myself as a writer.

I thought, “Wow, I’ve come a long way.” I think awful things about my writing. I also don’t really call myself a writer because it makes me uncomfortable.

I don’t doubt my creativity. However, my writing, I always tell myself, “You aren’t good enough. You need to improve,” which might be the reason I cannot complete my book. Starting my blog scared me out of my mind. Writing an ebook terrified me more because exposing your work, it’s like standing naked in a room full of strangers. img_2078-1

At any rate, I’m glad that I wrote the ebook, which it’s a collection of eight free verse and two micro-fiction pieces. I will link this to the below this blog. It will lead you to a different blog, you will scroll, and then you will find the free download. I hope you like it. If you do, please let me know. If you don’t, please keep it to yourself… (nervous laughter) and thank you. Remember to subscribe to my blog, please.

Once again, I must ask, this time though, adding a positive answer to my question: What does it mean when you read your own chapters that you are currently writing, and you find interesting?




I am writing summaries and biographies of the chapters and characters for my book, and I find the content interesting. I like it a lot. Of course, when it comes to writing, I get stuck trying to make things perfect. Hence, the reason that I am taking even longer time. But I am pleased with my work so far.

What are your thoughts on my question? You can answer it using your own writing experience. Have a great weekend and thank you.


One more thing. I have a new Twitter account, so follow me on this one, please. Thank you!

  1. It means you were born to write. It means that you are deeply connected to YOURSELF. Stay awesome Ana

  2. I very rarely love everything in one of my works. There may be snippets, or most of the piece, or perhaps an overall satisfactory result, but rarely an amazing feeling. I think that comes from self-doubt as I write. Writing today I found myself hating most of the words I wrote, purely because I believed it must be perfect, disregarding the idea that, hey, you can edit/rewrite this as many times as you need until you’re happy. But I usually feel better – or as though I’ve done a good job – once a story is completely done and published. Why, I don’t know! Great post.

    1. Thank you! And you’re right. I feel like deleting everything. But I’ll try to keep the editing part in mind. It is there until I am happy. I just wished it was awesome the 1st time. But it doesn’t work like that… I have to remind myself. Lol It has to polished in order to be good at some point. 🌹😊

  3. I am my own worst critic when it comes to reading my own writing. I did a reading of my new book a couple of weeks ago, and It did feel good to read the words I wrote.

    1. That’s amazing. It’s great that you were able to see the positive side of it. It can be quite challenging at times to shut that internal critic. And congratulations on your book. I ought to take a look myself. 😊🌹
