You're not a writer after you sell a hundred copies. That mountain of rejections doesn't define you. You're not a writer once the world knows your name either. You're a writer if you write. Even if you don't write for a while, you're still a writer. You're not an aspiring writer. You are a writer. … Continue reading An important reminder for writers
Sometimes we hear voices in our heads and write them down. Or an idea that no one could've ever thought of comes to us. We create something out of nothing.
