Five Great Quotations about What is a Writer

“Writing is something you do alone. It’s a profession for introverts who want to tell you a story but don’t want to make eye contact while doing it.” – John Green

“A writer – and, I believe, generally all persons – must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.” – Jorge Luis Borges

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” – Richard Bach

“There is no singular thing that makes someone a writer, but there is one thing that makes someone a joke – talking about writing a book without doing any work.” – Pat Walsh

“A writer is by nature, a dreamer – a conscious dreamer.” – Carson McCullers
