Do you think I could be called a writer?

Do you think I could be called a writer? Topic: Author writing about growing up
July 17, 2019 / By Blythe
Question: I am 11 and I write little mini stories a lot. I havent published anything because I am scared about being rejected. once when I was in 3rd grade I wrote a story about a teenager with magic pants. (dont laugh. she had barely bought them at this creepy store and when she put a 5 in her pocket later on when she went to the mall she got the money out and instead of a 5 she pulled out a bunch of hundreds.) so do you think I could be called a writer still? I wanna be an author when I grow up but im just scared.

Don't worry, everyone has doubts about their writing ability. You'll get better with practice, and learn new techniques along the way. Anyone who writes is a writer, I've never published anything and I consider myself a writer xxx

I advise against it. Not that you couldn't learn to be a pretty good writer, but the odds of making a living at it are quite small. I know maybe a hundred or more published writers fairly well, a handful in person and most online at a writing site. Three--three!--make a living from their writing. All the rest have jobs, working spouses, or another income source. I'd recommend studying a field in which you're likely to get a good job, and 'studying' writing independently, writing and submitting your work when you believe it's good enough to compete, with the help of writers at writing websites.

Maybe you could do both for a while, just in case the writing doesn't work out so you wont be left with nothing. You could take an evening class for writers or something

you are brave and strong.. dont think of yourself as being weak... you can be fulltime writer if you want.. no harm in that... but since it maynot start giving you good returns immediately, you need to be patient... i hope you know hoe much ms. rowling struggled before she made the hugely successful harry potter series... since you hav to fend for ur child as well, you cld also consider a regular job... and do the writing on the side.. watever happens dont giv up on ur dreamssss... you never know, the world might miss a great writer if that happens... :) all the best... god bless u n give u strenth in ur endeavours...

i desire to hold a revealed novel in my hand and be waiting to declare that it is mine, and accessible for the international to be sure. i desire my books to point some thing extra to me than what it says on the hide or interior of its pages. although my readers would possibly under no circumstances be attentive to it, i desire my books to tell a tale of each thing I went by to deliver it to life - each and all the successes and the mess ups, each and all the hard artwork and the exciting situations, each and all the hoping and dreaming and arranged, and each thing that tale meant to me for the duration of the long technique of writing it. i could desire to be united states or perhaps international well-known, yet while no longer something, this could be sufficient for me.

Aiyana Originally Answered: You are writer, if.?
You are a writer if you WRITE. There are no other qualifiers that make or don't make a writer. Every writer has his or her own style. Some writers need to be in a quiet space, undisturbed for days at a time. Others write in coffee shops and bookstores where they feed off the good energy and neverending lattes. Some write on scraps of paper, others on a typewriter, a laptop, a notebook, or post it notes. Some are obsessive, engrossed, forget meals and smoke two packs a day. Others write in between customers at the checkout line of a grocery store. So, if you are asking for the *de facto* identity of a writer - there isn't one. If you are looking for the *stereotypes* of a writer, then take a look at Ernest Hemingway, who I believe hits upon all of them. Alcoholic, broke (for a while), obsessive, escaped to Paris, smoked two packs a day, etc. But... if you are indeed looking for the stereotypes (maybe for a character in your own story?) - may I suggest that you break them. The greatest writers in history often defied whatever stereotypes you have about writers.

If you're passionate about it, if you enjoy it, if it's something you just can't get enough of. You're always thinking of new ideas. That's what makes a person a writer in my eyes :)
