Over 3,000-The number of times I’ve asked a friend, “Can I use idea that for one of my stories?”

117-The number of notes I wrote in grade 10 to pass the time. (I still have each one)

50-The number of excuses I give myself daily to get out of writing.

42-The number of chewed “lucky pens” that have made their way to my mouth and met their doom.

27-The number of short stories and plays I’ve actually completed (yes that includes the final spell check).

27-The number of successful short stories that sit idly on my desk.

21-The number of “teach yourself how-to-become a better writer” books I’ve read.

14-The number of incomplete journals I have scattered around my house.

11- The number of erasers sitting on my office desk.

10-The number of my many different personalities I exhibit depending on what “writing mood” I’m in.

5-The number of my family members whom I glean as my source for writing my crazy, quirky characters.

4.71-The number in my bank account.

3-The number of stories I’ve written that I truly love.

2-The number of computers I have which contain countless documents, files and pages of ideas for stories.

1- The number of writing contests I’ve won.

0-The number of articles, stories or skits I have published.

Unlimited-The amount of my passion, determination and commitment that’s written into every square inch of my body.

Who am I? I am a writer.

I came here to thank you for your comment on my "hope" entry for this week. I really appreciate it! Now, I have to thank you for this interesting article. Your title intrigued me and I had to discover the view from the mind of another writer! It is a neat perspective. Thank you and God bless!

Very witty and cute. So when does the "0" change to "1" or more? You have a talent for writing.
