How You Know You’re A Writer

Screw what anyone says. Writing – hell, any art – is one of the hardest things to do. It never ends up quite like you imagined, and trying to please everyone with your art is like trying to have an unbiased Intelligence Committee hearing.

But if, through all the struggles and the shitty drafts and the negative criticisms, something keeps drawing you back to writing… if you can’t stop yourself from putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard… that’s how you know you’re a writer.

-R.R. Buck
