Being a writer (by Neil Gaiman)

(Bukowski)

Being a writer has nothing at all to do with what college accepts you or doesn’t. It has nothing to do with whether you graduate from college or not. It has nothing to do with whether you study Writing or Geology.

Being a writer depends on whether or not you write, and (if you are doing it commercially) whether you write things that other people want to read.

That’s all.

Your dreams are safe. Go and write something.”

By Neil Gaiman
