Hey, if you're writing and intend to stick with it, you're a writer.
Idiot, you are not a real writer unless you pay the dues and become a published writer!
Pfft, that just means you're a successful writer.
You are Not a write unless you are a published writer. It is very hard to be a published writer, and I am sick and f*ucking tired of people saying otherwise.
I am a highly published writer.
Well, it might make a writer in the owner's mind. If you are going to write a sc<x>ript, just be willing to accept grammatical criticisms from the editor(s). For example, a true writer writes a sc<x>ript; she does not write UP a sc<x>ript.
Well your editor, for one, will care very much. That might put you out of a job.
