"The only way to fail as a writer is to stop writing." Agree? If not, what defines success for you?


Specifically, success as a writer?

    Loved the personal stories you shared in your answer (a sign of a good writer! :>) I, too, have heard that one needs to write every day to be successful at writing. I'm not there yet; maybe that needs to be my New Year's resolution for 2016.

    I appreciate the thought and time you put into responding to this question. You have a unique perspective, that each piece of writing (not the writer) is viewed as a success (or not). Very persuasive.

    I read once where a famous author (James Michener) preferred to be known as a 'writer' instead of an 'author'. He thought 'author' was a bit pretentious, while 'writer' was more down-to-earth. But I like your emphasis on 'author' as creator. Nice!
