When I claim to be a writer, people say, “Really? What have you published?” I only know to answer, “I’m a writer, not a publisher.”
When I claim to be a painter they say, “No kidding! What have you sold?” I only know to answer, “I’m a painter, not a salesman.”
When I claim to be a blogger, many say , “Great! How many followers?” I only know to answer, “I’m a blogger, not a leader.”
