What Writing is not


Writing is not reading books about writing.

Writing is not joining online forums and discussing writing.

Writing is not talking about writing.

I've done all of the above and they're great fun and really interesting but they are not writing.

Writing is sitting down, putting pen to paper or hands on the keyboard and producing written work. That's writing.


THE END

  1. Writing is writing. Preach it, sister! :) It's that easy, and it's that hard.
