Don’t call yourself an Aspiring Writer

Posted on Posted in English, Opinion, Writing

Either you are a writer or you are not. There is no aspiring here. If you want to be a writer, then write, but aspiring will take you nowhere.

This is one of the common mistakes that I hear from many writers; they aspire to be a Writer. In my opinion this came out of inexperience, fears and insecurities. You are a writer or you are not.

There was a time in my life that I was also an Aspiring Writer. The difference then is that I wasn’t writing, I was just aspiring but not doing the job. I aspire to write that book. I aspire to come with the inspiration of a great book. I aspire to sell millions of copies. Guess what. I aspire to a lot but write little. I was spending an incredible amount of time aspiring to be a writer.

What to be a writer? Stop Aspiring and be one.
