Quote: To be a writer, just write

“All one has to do to be a writer is to write. We’re writers only when we’re writing.

In other words, it’s an activity; it’s something we do, not something we are.

When we’re not writing, each of us is just another poor slob trying to get throught the day without hurting anyone too much.” (Alan Shapiro, Why write?, The Cincinnati Review)
