Are There Too Many Writers?

Before starting this blog, I kept thinking if there are too many writers, so maybe this niche is extra-full and I shouldn’t do it, but I did it anyway. And I keep thinking if the world needs so many written words, or if everything has been said already.

Well, maybe everything has indeed been said already and all we do is repeat the same things over and over again, but I believe it still is necessarily.

Maybe everything has been said, but not everything has been read

Not everybody read everything. Basically, this is the whole point. Your content hasn’t been read by everybody, so even the best-sellers are not read by everybody. An idea written once, reaches out to a certain amount of people, but if it is written over and over again, maybe it reaches out to everybody (if it is worth it, obviously).

Each writing style is unique

The way you write and the way I write are overall different. Maybe we use similar phrases or maybe some phrases are identical, but the whole thing surely isn’t identical, which is awesome! Humans are the same, but different, so diversity is what keeps the world running. Just like food. The same dish is different from one cook to another; therefore, you might enjoy one more than another, even if it’s the same idea behind.

An idea can be analyzed from a different angle

Imagine looking at a building. Does it look the same if you watch it from behind as it looks when you look at it sideways? Probably not. The same applies to an idea. Maybe someone sees only one side of that idea and you are able to look at it differently. Applying that with your own personal style, it can turn into something even bigger than the initial view.

My conclusion? No, there aren’t too many writers, at least, in my opinion. Everything needs to be said again and again until it makes an impact. What good is an idea if it reaches out to only 10 people?

What do you think? Are there too many writers? What makes you think so?

Writing is easy… everybody writes something. But who is writing? The heart, the brain or a mix of them? Why do you write and what is it good for? I guess we have to write everything down and find out!

  1. Nah, I don’t think there can ever be too many writers, because everyone brings their own experience to the table. Besides, writers go through different phases in their lives and that means not many of us will be doing the exact same thing at one go. Great post!

  2. I agree, there can never be two many writers. However, one thing you don’t mention is age. An older writer may have more worldly experience than a younger one or not. If you come to writing after you have retired from work as many writers do and are a grandparent you bring a whole different perspective to your writing.


  3. We are a strong force! From my experience, the challenge of making your voice heard among so much competition is what makes each of our stories unique. At the same time we have the comfort in knowing we can lift each other up. About 7-8 years ago one of the self-publishing companies announced that 3,500 new books were being self-published EVERY DAY. That number made me a little sick to my stomach. Out of those books, how many were poorly written, full of errors, etc.? It felt like even more noise and competition to fight through. Not sure what the statistics are today, but I continue to hope there are an equal number of readers coming into the world to keep pace with the books!

    1. Very interesting! Well, I think the number of readers is raising, especially now when people need to stay more inside and enjoy themselves (or they need to learn how to do that). A good book can be an amazing friend!


  4. Writers change the world. We express the diversity that is humanity. We, as men and women, equally express the desire to be free and create without suppression and oppression. When we are oppressed we still write and get the truth out into the world.

  5. Everyone brings a new perspective. Our personal experiences make us who we are today. We are all part of an organisation; it’s not a conspiracy. It’s creativity. (Did that sound as bad as I thought)

  6. Hello Lorena, I have to admit I don’t often read blogs, I certainly don’t read others in order to be read. I write perhaps as it’s a form of interaction, even if no one seems to be reading it. It pleases me of course to see even one person coming across my site, so thank you for stumbling across it. Lofty dreams about ‘becoming’ a writer, maybe. Perhaps it’s because few people nowadays really get to know each other, in this ego centric world few have the time or desire to listen. We all seem to have something to say. I will endeavour to read your ideas and advice as your post titles have already caught my attention.
