I like being an artist (and by artist I mean writer). The process of creation is intricate and satisfying. It's great to get an inspiration, an idea, and then try to work out how that can be developed into a story or poem, and finally to make that happen. I don't fancy myself as a brilliant writer, but there have been times when I've reread something I wrote several months later and been a little surprised that I wrote it. Those are very cool moments.
Still, sometimes I secretly wish I could be someone's muse instead. :)
