Several years ago this would have been a super simple question to answer and the answer would have been no. However, I participated in Nanowrimo a couple of years ago as a challenge and even though I never managed to “write a novel in 30 days” I did get bitten by the writing bug and never really stopped pecking away at various stories. I even self-published one for about 5 minutes before getting mugged by a serious case of imposter syndrome and pulling it down.
Do I dream of becoming an author? I don’t think so… But would I say no if I was given the option of becoming an author in the future? (With the caveat of being successful enough to give up the day job...) Absolutely not.
For now, I’m content to potter along doing my own thing and writing for myself whenever the urge strikes. One day - I hope sooner than later - I may be brave enough to share that writing and “own” being a writer but that day has not yet come!
