As a would be writer and author I am of the opinion that it is necessary to practice all disciplines of writing in order to become successful at my craft.
There is no doubt however that some types of writing are easier to manage than others.
I naturally gravitate toward conversational posts but I like dabbling in poetry and fiction writing. There is a form of escapism in those genres that I don’t feel in others.
Do you think in order to be a published author that you need to excel at all forms of writing? Is it good discipline to write something every day? Or should you only wait till the muse strikes?
What form of writing do you find most difficult?
Is it true that “a writer writes?” or is it not as simple as that? And what is the difference between a published author and a blogger like myself? Is it sheer hard work on their part? Or luck? Or a good agent? Or can anyone be a published author with enough determination ?
