To Be A Writer

What does it take to be a writer?

You have to write. That’s pretty much it. It may not be good, or grammatically pretty, but if you write, you’re a writer.

Hemingway only wrote 500 words a day. Stephen King writes 2000. Some people write even more. Some write less.

It doesn’t matter, as long as you write.

Go get your paper and pencil.

About Wendy L. Koenig

I was born in Colorado, but raised on a small homestead in Illinois. I served in the USAF right out of high school. After my stint in the military was finished, I returned home and had a horse stable. My first piece to be printed was a short children’s fiction, Jet’s Stormy Adventure, serialized in The Illinois Horse Network. It was a natural fit, given my business. Later, I attended University of Iowa's famed summer workshops and writing programs. Since that time, I have authored and co-authored numerous books. Several of my novels and short stories have won international awards and have appeared in multiple venues.
