"I'm a writer", I say. Looking them straight in the eye...Not batting a false eyelash.
Suddenly, the semi-bored face at the party focuses on me for a better look.
Really? That's INTERESTING!
It's like Moses had parted the waters and people take notice. If I had said I was a Realtor I would have gotten the blank stare off in the distance as they calculate how many 100's of people they know that is a Realtor.
Suddenly, at this party I am someone who may be" famous" Shhhh!...shut your mouth!
They lean closer now...hanging on my every word.
What do you write about?
"Real estate and Central Kentucky stories on events and interesting faces and places".
Wow! That's great. Where do you write these stories?
"In a blog and on Localism", I explain
It went on longer than this but you get the point. The shift from Realtor to writer was just a slip of the tongue. Spoken to some new person that had no idea who I might be at a Christmas party. I have to admit it even surprised me. Over the years I have re-invented myself over and over. All it required was to say it and it became real. In my mind I am a writer. The new coat feels GOOD!
OHhhh...I'll still be a Realtor. I have to pay my bills. What I know is that every thought creates and I am constantly revamping and improving me. Who I choose to be. Now a writer. It sounds good to me right now...
