on Helping Writers become Authors:
Like any good story, the writing life is a tale of deceptive depth.
At first glance, it offers up a shiny, artsy, fun cover. Become a Writer! its title beckons, and its first chapters lure us in by fulfilling all these initial promises.
But the deeper we get, the further we go, the more we realize there’s more to this story than meets the eye.
There’s more adventure, more conflict, more drama, and more comedy than we could ever have realized.
In short, there are many different misconceptions about being a writer.

Boy do a lot of these apply to me and so many others. I never planned on being a writer myself, I was just amusing myself with re-writing storylines for a show that had a lot of plot holes, because the show long outlived it’s intended run. So a lot of the writers were scrambling to put out new storylines which would up with continuity questions. In my case, I started creating totally new storylines as well that veered so far away from the show’s original design I finally realized I could just take those storylines and re-populate them with original characters and the rest became history. So in my opinion, if you create stories and are setting them down, rough draft or not, YOU are a writer.
