Writing is an art that we can choose to practice

If you write, you’re a writer.

As a writer, I’ve been told that if I’m not getting paid for my work or getting any kind of recognition for it, then I shouldn’t bother writing at all. It shouldn’t be worth my time. But the truth is that writing is one of the best exercises artists do to keep their creativity in check—and if you’re not getting paid for your work, you’re still an artist. 

You don’t need an audience and accolades to be a writer; you just need the desire to express yourself and a way to document your words.

  1. Totally agreed. Oftentimes, people only consider themselves writers after they’ve earned money from their craft, but I say that’s overthinking the process. We need to treat it as any other pursuit. If we like it, just go for it and don’t bother wondering if that makes us a golfer, or runner, or musician. Anyway, thanks for this post!
