Real Live People

"I didn't know writers could be real live people, because I never knew any writers." - Rita Dove

Wow, is that true. How many times during career day did one of your classmates' parents get up and say, "I'm Jimmy's mom and I'm an author." Like, never.

Guess what? I get to say that. I have already said that. And it was weird. Especially since my son's name isn't Jimmy.

Maybe I'll get used to calling myself an author someday. But part of me really doubts it.
