What is it that makes some people writers and other’s want-to-be-writers? Well, I would first start with the assumption that there are different definitions, and depending on which way you believe would answer that question.
If you believe that Writers are those that write everyday and want-to-be-writers (W2bW) only talk about writing every day, then I am a W2bW.
If you believe that Writers are those that find time to write as they travel through life (whether they finish a manuscript, play or otherwise) while W2bW add words to their work every few months, then I am a W2bW.
If you believe that Writers are anyone who has written anything ever in the history of being alive and W2bW are those who have never written a word, then I am a Writer.
On most days, I consider myself a Writer. This would probably be on more days than most. But there are other times when I look back on the long days in between since the last time I wrote anything, and think of myself as a W2bW.
In the end, I am a writer. I may falter. Life may get in the way, but I will always write. Days in between don’t matter. It is about what you feel in your heart. What you feel in the creative corners of your mind. Do you want to create a world that is yours alone or do you want to share it? Either way, if you are putting into words, you are a writer.
I am a writer.
What is your definition? What do think qualifies?
Enjoy. And Write.
