Worried about whether you are really a writer? Well fret no more – you are, indeed, a member of that illustrious breed. And here’s why.
You can call yourself a writer if you write. Even if it’s just a shopping list. A writer is someone who writes – period.
I think that the confusion as to whether one is a writer or not arises when adjectives come into play.
Some people are good writers, some are casual writers, some are prolific writers, some are professional writers, some are crap writers, some are hyperbolic writers and some are critical writers. At the end of the day, though – they are all writers.
So rest easy. Even if you have never written a word in your life (and that would be a massive stretch) all that it would take for you to become a writer right now is to click on Comment below this post and say hi.
Looking forward to chatting to you.
