Sit down and put down everything that comes into your head and then you’re a writer. But an author is one who can judge his own stuff’s worth, without pity, and destroy most of it.
Are you a writer, or an author?
There’s no judgment here. Some folks are better off as writers, and it’s a good thing for them–it’s a release, a relaxation, a self-exploration. Other folks want to be authors, and that means they have to do more than put words down on paper.
Which are you? And why?
