I Am A Writer Challenge

I recently signed up for the 15 Day Writing Challenge which Jeff Goins is graciously offering for free on his blog.  If you would like to take the challenge too, you can sign up HERE.

The 1st day’s challenge is to declare that I am writer.  So, let me back track just a bit.

A few week’s ago, Jeff challenged his readers to make a YouTube video declaring this fact.  I participated in that challenge as well.  You want to know something?  The video I made was not very good.  And, compared to the other entries, it stunk!  But you want to know something else?  I am not a videographer.  I am a writer.

Jeff also suggested we share the YouTube video with others.  He suggested we tweet about it or put it on Facebook.  You know how many times I shared it?  Zero.  I was embarrassed by it.

So, here I am today, facing my fear.  I am going to share my original entry with you.  Don’t get your hopes up.  My only suggestion is that you click on the picture and view it in full screen mode.  Otherwise, you won’t be able to see what I am typing.

The only thing I do like about this video are the chirping birds.  If you listen closely, you will hear these feathered supporters outside my office window begin singing in celebration immediately after I make my I am a writer declaration!

Okay, so as you can tell, I am not a videographer.

But perhaps I do have a future as a film director…

Cue the birds!

Or maybe…

I should just stick to writing.

    I felt your pain in the video. 🙂 It’s sometimes hard to make a declaration like that. I love to write, but have not developed the courage yet to proclaim that I am a writer. I suppose we all look for the affirmation of others to believe what we hope about ourselves. I like your writing style. Looking forward to reading more of your posts.

      Mike, thanks for stopping by! I just clicked over to your blog and I discovered a bunch of words there that you wrote. Which means that you are in fact a writer! Claim it. I hope you can claim it too. 🙂
