Every so often people ask me 'How do you get to be a writer?" Frankly, I think we are ALL writers. We ALL have a story or two to tell. Some of us simply take the time, patience and determination to actually sit down and bat those stories out. That's what I do.
Sometimes I get asked, "What's the best kind of writer?" And I always tell them, "Busy".
Sometimes I get asked about how I describe what I do? Well, you can always tell people you're a writer; the brag comes about with the adjective you use. You're an "ambitious" writer, that's pretty safe ground. You're a "provocative" writer, people think you stay up nights, drinking and hunting up dice games. You're a "investigative" writer, people clam up and start hiding the family albums. I try to be a "prolific" writer.
You are what you think you are; what you work to achieve, not by the labels someone else foists upon you. Me? I work toward being a busy, prolific writer. And here is the kind of stuff I write.
