What Sets apart a Writer from a Scribbler?



I presume that as a reader of this article, you must have passed at least the high school. We all had been taught language as a subject at school; our teacher took us through the often frustrating grammar lessons, and admired some of us and rebuked the rest for their poor comprehension skills.

Anybody having basic education can try their hands at writing a few sentences out of their own thoughts or known facts. Scribbling requires a pen/notepad or a laptop with a basic word document to get started. You can fill pages and pages with your endless writing, but after it’s done, ask yourself whether the written material will interest you if you were a third person.

It is very easy to get emotional with your own written content and think it has the potential to please the world. However, this will not take you far in the writing industry. Off course, you need to have some level of confidence in your writing skills.

Scribblers to Writers – Transition is Possible

Even if you don’t possess exceptional writing skills, your interest in writing could spike you to develop skills required to become a proficient writer. So, an inner driver is the prime ingredient without which it is not possible to become a creative writer. Moreover, being a writer is a highly creative job. It isn’t a mechanical job that you can carry out mindlessly each day with just an initial round of training.

Thinking Endless Possibilities

Writers need to have a pool of new and interesting ideas to weave a story out of them. So, writers need to have a fertile mind – mind that is always on the search for the answers to questions of nature, mysterious phenomena, life events, and an ability to see situations in ways that laymen often neglect.

Convincing and Engaging Tone of Writings

Writers have an ability to present their words in the most enchanting way and in a way that draws people towards their articles, stories, or novels.  Writers have an ability to convince the readers about the truth of their writings, about the efficacy of the products whose reviews they write, and about the depth of the characters in their novels.

Getting Inspired

Being a popular book author doesn’t just happen for some. They have been dreaming about it for a while, getting inspired by other authors of the similar league, and attending book fairs to get exposed to the wide range of books written by renowned authors all over the world. If you are an aspiring author and want some motivation to develop your skill more efficiently, visiting book fairs 2013 will expose you to the big names in the book industry.

Grand events like these have an ability to magnify the dreams of the scribblers, which are only in their latent stage. The more intense a dream is, the better is the hard work and passion put by the scribbler to become a writer or a book author, who is not just good but one of the top 10 authors in your country or maybe the world if you are really destined to.

Impact of Writer’s Life on His Works

If you think that the writer’s life has no impact on his writings except if he is writing an autobiography, you are wrong. In fact, a writer’s life has a deep impact on his writings. A writer’s writings are a gateway to his thoughts, and thence to the inner workings of his mind.

Without touching the deeper and much more complex phenomenon of psychological analysis, a writer’s articles or books are definitely something that he writes because he prefers to write unless  if someone’s forced him into the profession. But, as far as I know, writers are thinkers and use both of their brain’s cerebral hemispheres so that the highest degree of creative freedom is reflected in their writings. This is the most important difference between a scribbler and a writer/author.

The way in which a writer views the world is through many more perspectives that what is apparent. So, writers shouldn’t put any reins on their creative thinking process unless it is a principle or ethic-driven limitation which is essential.
