Writers evolve from many sources—a love of books is a good start, but we are not all born from the womb wanting to be writers.
Read what some of my writer friends here on this blog have to say about that. Their reality check is spot on.
Erm…NO! Some days the words flow and everything falls into place and other days I stare out the window trying to come up with a single good paragraph! One of my favorite Hemingway quotes sums it up nicely: “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
I think we all have one preferred way of being, but that doesn’t mean if you’re an introvert most of the time, you don’t have the ability to be an extrovert at other times. Go to a writing conference and trust me, you’ll hear all kinds of talk and laughter going on. And remember, many published authors spend a lot of time giving presentations to big groups of people, doing book signings, etc. So knowing how to let your extrovert shine will go a long way!
