The secret is that anyone can be a writer.
It’s not like sculpting, painting or playing the piano where one needs a unique skill. All it takes is putting a few words together, in the right order. We all know the words, we use them everyday. No one has to be Shakespeare, inventing words left and right. That’s a possibility, but only one of many.
True writers, those who discovered the secret, much like the painters, sculptors and pianists, are both artists and artisans. Art requires skill, it requires practice and it requires dedication. What sets writers off from the rest of the artist community is the simple fact that their tools – words, sentences and paragraphs – are readily available. You just have to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
Presented here are a few people who did just that.
