    We do not write, we press the keys on the keyboard. Actually we are Pressers, and we were typists before some years. Then why we are known as writers?

      B. We get paid for it.

      Why.  I thought you realized.  Pens (good quills actually) came well before typewriters or electronic keyboards. Oh, and pens had nibs in those days, not balls...

    You can call yourself a typist, but I am a writer and author....it's all in what you believe that you are. The power of self believe is awesome (maybe try it).

    Don't insult me.  I take it you have never worked "The Pool" and been around the bitches.  Is this supposed to be one of your "funny" questions?  Well, as usual, it's not working.

    We are known as "writers" because for years our ancestors handwrote the written word. Now we are even losing our penmanship and schools are stopping the teaching of cursive. (Big mistake, what if a holocause takes out all the power. Hope they can find someone who writes to record history on the backs of soup can labels.) Maybe someday someone will come up with a new terminology for us, but in the meantime I'm happy to be called a "writer", or an "editor", or anything that gets me to supper on time.
