Current Project - Work or Hobby?

Word Count: 37, 000

The title of this post is 'Current Project' rather than 'Work in Progress' as I was orignally going to call it. It seemed wrong to refer as my book as 'work' as I see it as a hobby at the moment. I'm not getting paid to write and nobody is going to see it for quite some time.

I would love to be a writer but I don't see myself as one and won't until (fingers crossed) I am published. I enjoy writing but that doesn't mean I'm any good at it. I can bash out numbers on a calculator but it doesn't make me a mathematician.

It isn't like I don't take writing seriously. It has always been a dream of mine to be a writer and I put time and effort in, writing around 2, 000 words a day. This isn't a 'meh' project but it will remain simply a project until I see my book, with a cartoon cover, in Waterstones.

Or WH Smiths, Asda, Poundland. I'm not fussy.
