I pondered a while the title but thought this one should grab your attention.
Please read all the way before giving me the “You write? You’re a writer” comment. :-p
I am not a writer.
Because I can’t really write as such: I always had trouble throughout my school years with written assignments because I can summarize other people’s works but not develop my thoughts. Descriptions are not really my strong points either.
As a child, I always had ideas for little stories, but I never finished them…
I am really lucky to have a very patient critic partner (Thanks @katjarinne!) because, otherwise, my current WIP would be just the summary of the actual story.
So why do I write?
Because my imagination, muse and characters have demanded so, and you know how it is: one does not say “No” to them easily. (Or at all)
I don’t think I’m a writer, I think I’m a storyteller in training.
