Every writer is a writer.
At first glance this may seem as a sentence without much meaning or even much sense. However, what prompted me to write it was that it occurred to me that sometimes we are quick to criticize other’s work without going deeper. Some might stop reading at the first grammatical error they encounter, others at the first cliché. I have read about a best-selling author giving an opinion on another writer (now a best-selling author) and saying that the author did not know how to write. The author became a sensation overnight. I guess my point is that we should not judge or ill criticize the writing of others just because it does not follow our style and common rules. There are no Gods in the world of writing just writers.
One thing is to present a piece to the world that is poorly written and obviously, without much care – that shows in writing. Another, is to write different from the masses. We should work on improving our writing everyday.
