What qualifies a person to be a writer? Is it the fact that a person has a way with writing words? Is it because the person can use the pen to capture a captivating story? As this quote above states, a writer is not a writer just because he or she writes well.
There’s more to being a writer than writing well. We love the way Junot captures it, “A writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.“
The journey to being an accomplished writer can be lonely sometimes. There will be times of discouragement but you need to keep writing. Do you know why? It is because you have a message that the world needs to hear. There are lives that you are meant to touch with your words.
So don’t stop writing. Your words are important.
