Today Is Authors Day
Authors Day will be celebrated by writers from many genres. An author is not simply someone who writes a book.
Being an author involved in any type of writing needs determination, resilience and a degree of intelligence. an author may be a reporter for the newspaper. Just because the pieces they write may be no longer than this blog does not mean that a considerable amount of time and effort has not gone into it.
The author that writes a novel must do an amount of research to make the scenes and the characters in the book seem real to the reader.
Those that write reference books do an incredible amount of work compiling facts for insertion in their writings. So you can see, writing a book is something done with a great deal of thought and, yes, even emotion.
