I didn't know who I was last week.
Luckily Nicki was able to help me out. She's always the one who has the answers.
Oprah said I could find out who I was meant to be.
I have to do all the work though. Apparently I'm the one with the answers!
If you go back to January on this blog I'm supposed to have been on a journey of self discovery about myself as a writer this year. I think I've discovered that I'm lazy. Or if not lazy at the very least an Olympic contender for a medal in procrastination.
I've written very little bits and pieces of various things. I think I've spent the year finding out things I probably already knew if only I was a little better at seeing myself.
My biggest epiphany was that while I might be a pantser, I need a plan. If you look back further than January I already knew that, wrote a whole blog about it even.
I also discovered that I like to write different stuff. It seems that 'day job' me quite likes writing for children. 'H M Davis' me writes rather dark stuff, in a variety of sub-genres. 'Maree Davis' me likes writing category contemporaries. 'H Maree Davis' me - well, no wonder I was confused.
What I really discovered was that I need to separate out all the different things that I like to write and do one at a time. It makes my writing life a whole lot easier. Now I can get on with the writing.
Tell Oprah I was meant to be a writer.
Hey Nicki, I know who I am!
Who are you? And how did you find yourself?
