It’s a phrase you see everywhere, especially on any number of writing blogs. A “true writer” will do this or be that. It could be anything from how the writer spends their time to what words they use in their stories. While there are trends often followed in writing, we at Writing Roots don’t believe there is any one way to be a true writer.

First of all, writers are not born naturally good writers. They are made. It takes years of dedicated work to become a good writer, but it doesn’t only apply to fictional narratives. We talk about all the kinds of writers that help prove this myth to be false in this episode.

First aired March 15, 2021.
