[…] Certain You’re A Writer? Cassandra Jade, blogger of thought-provoking questions, has another poll over at her site and one of the questions that was asked (not on the poll, but in the comments) was […]
Definitely “how do you know you are a writer”. I don’t buy all that ‘writer’s just write’ stuff – but that may be a personal bugbear! I think you can write in your mind as well, but it has to hit paper for others I guess. I am interested in the mechanics questions too like how, when and where do you write and do you need a special pen and yellow legal pads etc 🙂
Interesting to think of the answers I would give to each question, sort of shows me where my head is right now. Thanks.
The questions I want answered most always have to do with process. “Where do you get your ideas?” is only the tip of the iceberg on this… I want to know how other writers work – their writing schedule, tricks for getting moving when they get stuck, how they tackle writing an entire novel, etc. – because I am still trying to find my own best way to work.
