How To Be A Writer

You’re a writer if you write. It’s as simple as that.

You don’t have to pass a test to be a writer. You don’t have to publish something to be a writer. There’s no barrier of entry.

That being said, there are some things you should do.

  • Own it. Tell yourself you are a writer. Believe you are. Announce it to the rest of the world if you want. Be proud of being a writer, okay?
  • Write. But more than just writing, you need to care about writing. You need to commit to it. You, my dear friend, will attempt to do what many are not willing to do. So your attitude matters more than theirs.
  • Separate personal remarks from professional comments. If this is too difficult, train yourself. A thick layer of skin helps in this world.

You don’t really need me to tell you how to be a writer, do you? You already are one.
