So, someone asked me the other day:
“Simran, can anyone be a writer that gets admiration? Or is writing not everyone’s cup of tea?”
I had this to reply…
Yes, anyone can write. In fact, we are all writing on a day to day basis without realizing — Messages, comments, post captions, emails. And we all have definitely written our language exams, haven’t we?
So, yes, we all are writers.
Now, the difference why some are “writer” writers and some aren’t is… choice.
These “writers” chose to pursue that path with their practice and passion.
…They looked for opportunities to write everywhere.
…They carried a notebook and pen everywhere they went. (Because who knows when inspiration strikes!)
…They lived and breathed words.
…They read like a maniac, and wrote like a mad scientist.
…They sat down with a pen, staring at the blank paper, and making an article out of their existential crisis.
…They kept trying to find the meaning of their life in the words they wrote.
…They kept on honing their skills with learning and improvement.
…They dedicated their life to this craft.
And they did it all everyday. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Unfailingly. Without giving up.
Even when the blank page stared them to death!
They are “writers”!
