"A writer is..."

I love when writers talk about what writers are.  Here are a few descriptions I've
come across recently...

A writer is a world trapped in a person.  - Victor Hugo

A writer loves the dark, loves it, but is always fumbling around in the light.
- Joy Williams

By Kevin Lucbert

Put down everything that comes into your head and then you're a writer.  But an
author is one who can judge his own stuff's worth, without pity, and destroy most
of it.  - Colette

It is impossible to discourage the real writers - they don't give a damn what you say,
they're going to write.  - Sinclair Lewis

A writer is always writing, seeing everything through a thin mist of words, fitting
swift little descriptions to everything he sees, always noticing.  - Shirley Jackson

A writer is someone who has taught his mind to misbehave.  - Oscar Wilde
