Q. Can I Call Myself a Writer?

roxanegay:

A. Do you write? If yes, then yes, you can call yourself a writer. There are no special requirements for calling yourself a writer. It is a word that represents an act. Yes, you are a writer. Of course you are a writer.

I must learn to love the fool in me–the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my Fool.

Flugzeug is a great word, though. It is approximately 10000x more fun to say than “airplane”.

"Please don’t throw your papers in a lake, little ducks don’t eat paper with ink. When you feel like that just go out for a walk and once you’ve reached the closest lake just feed them with bread. Then, enjoy their happy "quacky" sound, open your notebook, bring your favorite pen, take a breath and restart to write. Please don’t throw your papers in a lake, little ducks don’t eat paper with ink."
