I was struck by a post over at Pens Fatales that talked about defending oneself as a writer. And it stuck me once again as to how and who defines the term writer.
I read Martha's post and felt inspired by her dedication. And I have to admit to feeling a tad bit jealous, too.
What makes one writer? Is it someone leading the writing life, with a manuscript, an agent, conferences and events and all kinds of other social networking that goes along with the publishing process?
Or can a real writer also be that working mom with very limited time to craft stories after dinner, dishes, and homework?
