On Writers and Writing
There are, of course, different kinds of writers. Some writers write for someone else: A newspaper, magazine, blog, an advertising firm or even writing manuals or greeting cards. Some writers are freelancers, writing for several someones. Some write fiction, some write non-fiction. Some write novels, some write short stories. While a writer shouldn't feel limited to just one sort of writing, he (or she) should decide what kind of writer to be. Different forms of writing require different skills. I will explore what it takes to write in these different genres in future posts.
