We met up with a friend a while ago and went for a drink with him. Discussing our jobs, I expressed dissatisfaction with mine, and he said: “What would you rather do?”
“I want to be a writer,” I replied.
Oh. My. God. I said it out loud. I want to be a writer.
I went on to talk about how I want to write scripts for television and that I had written one comedy/drama type script.
It felt very weird and almost vulnerable saying it out loud, but since I did that, I’ve found myself writing a lot more. So, perhaps it was also an incentive and made it a lot more real.
