Let us take a moment to remember that having an idea for a story, or even an entire story plotted from start to finish in your head does not, in itself, make you a writer. It does not make you a writer any more than thinking about a nice image in your head makes you an artist. You are not a writer until you actually write those ideas down and come to understand that transferring words from your head to a piece of paper and keeping them intact and engaging can be exactly as challenging and frustrating as doing the same with images.
I’ve been doing a lot of writing lately and every :30 seconds I just want to hurl myself into the sun.

“Let us take a moment to remember that having an idea for a story, or even an entire story plotted from start to finish in your head does, in fact, make you a writer. It makes you as much of a writer just like how thinking about a nice image in your head makes you an artist.”
If someone can think a whole story in their head and see such beautiful art, that makes them even more so than what people would label other’s as artist/writers. Why do people have to see everyone’s talent to acknowledge who they are? We are all special and unique in our own ways and some stories and pictures are just too beautiful to ever write down or draw no matter how talented we are.
Sometimes I think about outer space and tell people I’m an astronaut.
