My description that I have been plastering all over the place is this: Daughter, Sister, Mother, Partner, Dreamer, Reader, Crocheter, Writer... Author is a title I will earn when I am published.
It's on my Twitter, Blogger, Google, Pinterest, and whatever other social thing I happen to be on. As I was writing my Celebrate the Small Things post, I said that I was grateful for my creative mind. That got me to thinking...you know what? Authoring is hard work. I am not just a writer. I am an Author. Not that there is anything wrong with being a writer. I am a writer as well, but Author implies a little bit more.... My profile will soon be updated, not because I am published, but because I am an Author.
I have given myself the big DUH slap to the forehead.
