Being a writer is not about your skill level, about having something to write about, about having published or having 6,000 followers crazy to read your books. All these things can be worked on.
Being a writer means you need writing in your life to be happy (or less miserable). Writing is a part of you, like a hand, your heart or your brain.
So, don’t mutilate yourself and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you are a writer, embrace it, own it, come out of the writing closet! You know who you are :)
