Calling ourselves “writers” is too nebulous a term. It does little to describe or even mention what it is that we actually do.
We create stories. And not only do we create these stories but we communicate these stories to audiences.
The fact that we transmit our stories, via the written word, printed on paper or computer screens or translated into moving images called “movies” or otherwise dramatized on the stage by “actors” is largely irrelevant.

We are storytellers; first and foremost.
Which revelation, interestingly enough, places the creation and transmission of the story at the center of our profession rather than the scribbling, or keyboard pecking that people refer to as “writing”.
