Being a writer is having a habitual pattern of writing. It sounds like a no-brainer (and it is) but if you knew how many people dream of being writers without writing, you would be surprised.
For some reason, writing is a craft people think they can do without having to write on a daily basis. You would never think that about a great athlete. You know that if you want to get to the Olympic Games, you have to train every day for years.
Why do we think differently about writing? Because society is build on it. We cannot go through life without having to write. We depend on writing. By contrast, it's no problem going through life without being an athlete.
Are you a writer?
In other words, people have a pretty good idea of what writing is, but they have rarely explored it deeper than that. They have never built a habitual pattern of writing on a daily basis.
That's key to writing, though. It's the one thing that separates a writer from the masses. Whatever talent you have, and however great a craftsman you are, your life must be built around getting the writing done.
This is, of course, hard. But if it wasn't hard, anybody could do it, which is not the case. Only writers can do it. So ask yourself, are you a writer?
