"A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because, even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway."
—Junot Diaz, Professor of Writing & Pulitzer Prize Recipient
The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we all are unable to say.
A real writer doesn't just want to write, a real writer has to write. A writer, I think, is someone who pays attention to the world. And as a writer, you try to listen to what others aren't saying, and write about the silence they are.
And as a writer, if you write to impress, it will never be good, but if you write to express, it will be magnificent.
