Dear Writers Write Followers

This is the week when we ask you to help support and grow Writers Write. If everybody reading this gave $10, our fundraiser would be over in a few days. We are a small company that carries the costs of top website servers, staff, and programmes. We think Writers Write is special. It is a library for writers. Everything you need is on the site. If Writers Write is special to you too, please take a minute to donate to keep us online and growing. Thank you!

10 Reasons Why You’re NOT A Writer …


Writers Write is a resource for writers. In this post, Anthony Ehlers shares 10 reasons why you’re not a writer.

10 Reasons Why You’re NOT A Writer …

  1. You’re not a writer because you put pretty words on a page. You’re a writer because you create stories people will never forget.
  2. You’re not a writer because you have superpowers. You’re a writer because you work super hard at the craft of storytelling.
  3. You’re not a writer because you’re on a talk show, or own a fleet of cars or a mansion in the Cayman islands. You’re a writer because you can’t imagine doing anything else.
  4. You’re not a writer because you’ve published a novel – or ten. You’re a writer because you can’t wait to write all the novels you haven’t yet published.
  5. You’re not a writer because you wear tweed jackets or horn-rimmed glasses. You’re a writer because you’re writing every word with your soul naked and exposed.
  6. You’re not a writer because you have talent. You’re a writer because you sit down to write every day, no matter if you feel talented or not.
  7. You’re not a writer because you have courage. You’re a writer because you’re bigger than your fears and your failures.
  8. You’re not a writer because someone gave you permission. You’re a writer because you never seek permission from others to go after your dream.
  9. You’re not a writer because you know all the answers. You’re a writer because you’re always asking the questions no one else is asking.
  10. You’re not a writer because you’re lonely. You’re a writer because you know you can never be alone when you can create new friends just by picking up a pen and piece of paper.
