Do you refer to yourself as a writer?


Do you think it matters (when calling yourself a writer) if you have never been paid for your work? I have written poetry and short stories since I was a teenager, admittedly with a break of a few years, and I now write a blog and some hubs. I consider myself a writer but feel nervous about calling myself one because I have never written professionally. Does anyone else feel the same way?
