When You Start Throwing Adjectives Around, the Trouble Starts

Okay, I give in. I’ll just say it and get it over with. I’m a writer. I must be because my hands are killing me from all the typing. And I’ll confess. It isn’t about whether or not I’m a writer–I write everyday and when I’m not writing I’m thinking about writing. Surely that is enough to qualify. It’s about whether or not I’m a good writer, and it’s when you start throwing adjectives around, that the trouble starts.

  1. The problem with this culture (and any other which puts the power of print in the hands of the few) is that we equate “published writer” with “good writer.” It’s the ultimate validation, but it’s not the only measure. There are thousands of good writers in the world. They just need to find their audience, and we typically only do this through publishers. And of course, good writers don’t necessarily get paid, unless they’re published. It’s a tough vocation!
