I've been wondering what makes a writer. Obviously anybody who writes, but what makes YOU a writer? When did you first feel that moment of I'm A Writer. Was it the first time you won a contest? Got a good crit from someone you admire? Decide to go the distance, do the research and work and publish or else? Was it when you finished your first book? First time you Beta read or received an ARC? Landed an agent or publisher? First time you held that beautiful book with your name on it? Or maybe the first Royalty check?
Or is being a writer a process? Each book is different and we have to find new ways to write, are we just always becoming writers? A staircase, with each step leading us closer but where we never reach the top because perfection is unattainable?
What is it for you?
