Writers: Born or Made?

Monday, January 11


I guess this question could be asked of any artistic profession.

Some people, after complimented, say that they were "born with it". Was I born with the ability to write? I don't know. I hadn't even considered writing for fun until 5 years ago. (So I guess that makes my profile description sort of a lie.)

It's my opinion that you can do anything if you practice and study the subject long enough.
Yet some people while being taught a new subject have "a knack" for it right off the bat.

I think it's that everyone has some things they excell at, and some things they're not-so-good at. But that's not to say they cannot do the things they suck at (sorry, that sounds harsh), but that they have to work harder than others to do it well.

What do you think?

I should say writers are made.

To be a writer one person need to experience it, do some reading and learn.

people only say "you're born to be a writer" to comfort one person.

but everyone know without the learning process there is no writers.

Thanks for following my blog. :)

I would say that good writers are a combination of "born" and "made". It takes a lot of practice and perseverance to become a good writer, but I also think that people who write well have been given that gift. And, maybe it's not entirely being "born with it", but more like "born to be it". Other factors, too, such as personal experience, personality, etc., affect a writer.
