So you want to become a writer.
Perhaps you write because it makes you feel alive. Perhaps you once read a book that made you think, “It must feel amazing to write something like this. Maybe I could be a writer.” Perhaps you feel like you can’t not write.
So then, how do you do it? How do you become a writer?
You Never Stop Becoming a Writer
Several years ago I became a writer. I’m not talking about the moment when I quit my job to write full-time. That happened much later. No, I became a writer when I started writing.
I still remember making the decision to write and publish one article per day on my blog. It wasn’t much, but this small habit was the beginning of my life as a writer.
Since then, I’ve written four books and more than a thousand articles. I’ve been published in national magazines and became a bestselling author. But that one decision changed my life.
No one is born a writer. You must become a writer. In fact, you never cease becoming, because you never stop learning how to write. Even now, I am becoming a writer. And so are you.
