It’s the funniest thing. When someone asks me what I do for a living, I tell them, “I’m a writer.” The standard response is, “No, really, what do you do?” Somehow, I always get lost in the conversation because I never expect that type of response. I end up floundering in hopes of someday finding a good response.
— So, how do you know you’re a real writer? —
It has to be a certain look or smell that identifies you as a writer. Is it the turtleneck and mothball odor that give it away, or perhaps its the old blue jeans you wear for a week or two.
Generally, my rule of thumb is if you can sell your ideas and make money writing, you’re “a writer!” If you sit and write all day long and never sell anything, then “you write.” So, in summary: “you write until you become a writer!”
