Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog that tells us There’s Only One Thing That ‘Makes’ You a Writer
Technically, I have never published a book.
The more time I spend casually offering advice to other writers, the more this fact bothers me.
Not enough to stop me from writing — not enough to make me question every single response I compose to strangers and acquaintances alike. It’s more like a subtle yet constant ringing in my ears. Most of the time I don’t even notice it’s there. But every now and then, I do. And for a short time after that, it’s so irritating that I can’t concentrate on anything else. At least until I get used to the ringing again.
We all, in some way, have our own definitions of what it “means” to be a writer. There’s nothing wrong with setting your own parameters defining what may or may not qualify you to use the title of “writer” in a variety of contexts throughout your life.
