5 Myths about being a Writer

Writers are perceived in many ways. Here are some myths about writers that are not true!

  1. Writers are Eccentric – some call it being reclusive and odd — yet it could merely be peculiar habits that help the writing process. People look for inspiration in different ways, and writers may have a unique way of looking at things.


  1. Writers hate Deadlines — well, who does not? While writing is a personal endeavour, deadlines are essential to keep on track of a project — mainly if the project is in collaboration with others.  Writers respect this immensely.


  1. Writers are Hermits — while famed authors like Emily Dickinson have lent credence to this myth, most writers are social beings — though they enjoy solitude while writing — they have active social lives and meeting new people is an integral part of their learning curve.


  1. Writers are Grammar Nazis – while it is good to have sound grammar — most writers do struggle with spelling and grammar. They hone their skills with writing regularly and learning from their mistakes.


  1. Writers wait for Inspiration — this is not exactly true — if they wait around for inspiration to turn up — the writing will never start and end. What they do instead is put words on paper — no matter how hard it is. As Ernest Hemmingway said “There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.”
