You're A Real Writer Stamp by mirz-alt You're A Real Writer Stamp by mirz-alt
If you write, you're a writer. Period.  Granted, perhaps you're not a "professional" writer, but you are no less of a writer. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

Personal rant: I'm just sick and tired of the idea that if you don't try to traditionally publish that you're less of a writer. Just because your dreams don't match another person's doesn't make you any less. There is a perception that if you don't *try* to publish it must be because you feel your work is inferior. That's not true. I e-Publish because I write a serial that is not easily marketable and which I want to post on a rather rapid schedule. It upsets me when people say I do that because I'm "not confident enough" that my work could be published. Frankly, I have other works I hope to go the traditional route with. For now, I'm happy with what I'm doing and I don't feel myself better or lesser than anyone. Yeah, maybe my skill is higher or lower, but at the end of the day, I'm still a writer.  And if you write, so are you. C:

Editing to add: I purposely didn't make this to be a publish vs non-publish stamp because it's much more than that. There are people who write fan-fiction who are told they are not real writers. It applies to many areas. We're all in the same community sharing the same love: writing. What path we take from there is a very personal choice, and one others shouldn't criticize just because they would do it differently.

This is very true. In my opinion anyone who writes is a real writer, whether published or not. ^_^

I'm happy this was made. The most I ever write is fan-fiction, and I feel rather uncreative for not coming up with my own material ; u ; Thanks for creating this.

So do I, writing is writing. Regardless of what you're writing, right?
