Can I call myself a writer now?

You'll never guess what. 

A little while ago I put forward my novel, for a manuscript development award, through Varuna and Harper Collins. To my complete surprise it was shortlisted just before Christmas. Then, just two days ago, my story was chosen as one of the final five. 

I'm still in shock.

So in May, I will head to the Blue Mountains, for a 10 day writers retreat, where I will meet with a HC editor.

I'm not sure that I can yet fully comprehend this. They liked my work! 

Does this mean I can call myself a writer?
