When is a Writer a Writer…

Looking through my Lifestream through AIM this morning I found this interesting post on “The Simple Reason You’re not a Writer (Yet)” by Jeff Goins that I thought I’d share with you all.

I once asked author Steven Pressfield when a writer becomes a writer.

 

Is it when you get book deal? When you sell your first thousand copies? When you hit the best sellers list? When do you get to call yourself a writer?

 

Steve said something I’ll never forget:

“You are when you say you are. Screw what everyone else says.”
