….A Real Writer…

When you’re talking to or posting with a bunch of writers, you’ll find that certain topics will surface and be on everyone’s mind for awhile. Some come up once, get thoroughly discussed and pass from the scene. Some, on the other hand, resurface over and over again.

Lately, as I wander through writer’s groups online, one of the big ones seems to be “What makes you a Real Writer?….”

And opinions run high on this topic.

  • Some say you’re not a real writer unless you’re published
  • Some say you’re not a real writer unless you write every day
  • Some say you’re not a real writer unless you have perfect grammar and punctuation
  • Some say you’re not a real writer if you’re writing as part of a day job

There’s a lot of strong opinions on the topic.

Seems to me, a writer is someone who writes.

Period.

Just like a runner is someone who runs or a painter is someone who paints.

and a “real” writer is a writer that isn’t fictional (if you’re a fictional writer, you get your own classification)

Anything else is gravy

So if you want to be a writer, get out there and write.

You should be writing…
