Inspiration Station: Writing More Than Books

Inspiration Station Writing more than books

You don’t have to write a novel to be considered a “writer.”

Movies and TV shows.

No, it’s not reading. But someone had to write the words for the actors to say. You’re watching the characters.

Video games.

Most video games tell a story. There’s always bad guys and conflict. There’s usually a happy ending. You are the character.

Blogs and social media.

Some people post stories and chapters on their blogs, yes. But most post articles, essays, information, or funny ramblings. Some people tell stories in just 140 characters or less on their Twitter and it’s amazing.

So just because you don’t have a novel published or finished doesn’t mean you’re not a writer. We’re all writers.

What makes you a writer?

  1. For so long, I wanted to write a novel… but it is a long process, and I don’t think I’m ready for the task.

    Lately, I’ve been looking into screenwriting. I’ve discovered that I enjoy it much more than any other writing. Maybe this is the path I’m meant to take.

    Thank you for this post! Sometimes we writers need a reminder of what being a writer actually means.


    • It takes some people years to write a novel. You should definitely give it a go. If anything, to see how far you can get with it. Who knows? New ideas might spark and you might surprise yourself.
      But I think screenwriting is great. I’ve written a couple of scripts myself. Unfortunately, they were all lost when my flash drive died, but I still have the ideas and plan to get back to them someday.
      Good luck! 🙂
