After reading all these blogs and quotes, I noticed one thing: there are huge differences between writers. And I’m not talking about style, I’m talking about the creation process.
I know, I know, I haven’t discovered a new country or something and this is pretty much obvious for everyone, but there are writers that write 1000 words in one hour and others that write the same amount in 5 hours. And the quality is similar. Why?
Some people are born this way
I think that some writers are born to be writers, while others are not. However, this doesn’t stop them. Even though the writing process feels similar with being in a surgery without anesthetic, they keep going.
For others, writing flows naturally, like breathing. They can write anything anywhere. Maybe this is a classic example of nature vs nurture?
Experience has a say
Of course, we need to consider the experience as well. But sometimes the more experience one has, the harder it is to settle to a written piece. This is because new ideas and new ways of writing will flow around that person, therefore it gets harder to choose and stick to something.
The results are similar
In the end, regardless how much one struggles to get a piece done, the results are similar. A talented writer that puts in little work will have the same results as a writer that works hard to grow every day. Actually, the working-hard writer might even do a better job than the talented one because the growing speed is faster.
Talent gives you an edge, but work brings you success. And I believe this applies to everything in life. So, if words get out of you like water out of a faucet, you have a super-power! Use it wisely!
