OK ... YOU! Yes, YOU - in front of the computer! Flip to your word processing program - YES NOW! Write Me a paragraph describing the writer who has influenced you and why. Then come back here. Finished? OK, you are a writer. A writer is someone who writes - Period Full Stop End of Sentence. I became a writer from the age of 3 years old when I wrote about a "silly silly mouse". Now, if you want to become a GOOD writer - that takes practice. Everyone needs a different amount of time to become the best writer you can be - and even published writers to constantly learn new techniques. The best way to start becoming a writer is to start. Write something and send it to a publishing house or magazine (or whatever); to write something while waiting to hear back from that one, and send to the second thing; rinse and repeat until you make a sale.
