Writing as a Calling

by on January 12, 2013

“Writing is different.  Other people get into occupations by accident or design; but writers are born.  We have to write.  I have to write.  I could work at selling motels, or slopping hogs, for fifty years, but if someone asked my occupation, I’d say writer, even if I’d never sold a word.  Writers write.  Other people talk.” – Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella
