George Orwell on what makes writers special.

"There is also the minority of gifted, willful people who are determined to live their own lives to the end, and writers belong in this class." George Orwell

George Orwell was a remarkably observant man and an amazing writer. I believe he is absolutely correct in his assertion that writers are by definition individualists. It takes a strong ego, and I use the term in the best sense of the word, to be a writer. People lacking the confidence and the pluck to follow their own path will never write. They lack what it takes to ignore critics and those who say they will never to succeed to pursue their art. 

Thanks for reading this blog. Keep the ideas flowing, your fingers on the keyboard and your dreams alive!
