Writers come in all shapes, sizes and ethnic backgrounds. Writers are young, old and in between. Some writers even put chocolate milk in their corn flakes. (Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it.)
We writers are the original motley crew.
So how can such a motley crew be covered by such a simple word as “writer”? Easy. All writers are committed to using words to capture life on the page. Now I’m speaking about those people who want to write well. I’m speaking about those people who understand that writing well is not the same as dashing off an email to your peeps. To write well, a writer has to study writing, has to read good writing and then has to sit down and write, a lot…usually for years before he or she becomes a good writer who writes well.
That’s a lot of work.
