“You know you are a writer because you are always writing.”
Twenty-six letters change the world!
Writers are a unique group of people. We make stuff up and tell people to believe in the awesome of it. With that ability to master less than thirty letters, we can finesse into any space to make it our own–including blogging!
Do all writers blog? No.
Are all bloggers writers? No.
Are all writers bloggers? No.
I considering blogging my exercise. It keeps the skills sharp. It keeps me on my toes and makes me aware of what is going on in the world around me, and forces me to be concise about it. It forces me to expound and think outside the box–even those I set for myself.
Writers are the misfits of the artistic field in this way. We can fit in anywhere! Writers make inroads where there were only thickets. Writers don’t need to blog to prove that they write–we just need to write! It doesn’t make you any less of a writer if you don’t have a place in the internet that has a catchy title or name or mantra!
IF YOU ARE A WRITER, YOU JUST NEED TO WRITE!
So…write! Blogging may not be your speed, but poetry just may be! If not poetry, maybe short stories. You are a writer! You make your own path and your own artistic way in the way in the world. Blogging isn’t the pre-requisite to being a writer. Being a writer doesn’t mean you should be or are someone that blogs.
The ability to be blogger, to blog, is just that. You as the writer of said corner of the internet, wield all dominion and power over that digital realm. You can make it funny, informative, somber, or zany. You make the space what you desire. YOU are the captain of this ship!
Is a writer a blogger? If they wanna be.
Being a writer is a superpower. Go and wield your weapons, dear one. Don’t be defined by genre or the blogsphere. The talent, the gift, is yours.
Ready! Aim! Write!
