Blogathon 2006 (9 of 48): That’s when it makes it real

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.
