Author vs. Writer

Do YOU agree or disagree? 😀

  1. I do agree there is a difference between creating a story and writing for a client. I do both – working for clients creating website and promotional content, while writing my own stories in between. I’m about to publish my first book and I found that the process of writing it was entirely different to that of working for someone else. So yes, there is a difference – it is subtle but it is there. However, if someone asks what I do, I say I’m a writer. It’s easier than going into a big discussion about the difference between the two terms! 🙂

  2. Funny. I just wrote a little post about this for my blog next month. More about what denotes a ‘successful author/writer’ though. I’ve come to realize that everyone seems to have their own definition of these terms.
