We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle
I try and write every day. Sometimes I only do 100 words, sometimes I do a couple of thousand. More often than I would like, I don't write anything at all. And sometimes, as an unpublished author, it's difficult for me sometimes to truly believe it when I tell people I am "a writer".
After all, what is a writer without a published book?
That's where trying to write everyday comes in. Writers write. After all, lots of people have published books who I would not necessarily consider as writers. (Did you know Sharon Osbourne wrote a novel??) Publication is a goal, but it's not what defines us.
We're writers, after all. What defines us is what we do repeatedly.We write.
