The starting line

No one looks at a new-born baby and says, “She’s a great writer.”

That would be silly.

No one is born a great writer, you become one with the choices you make along the way.

[Note: That doesn’t mean with enough practice you are going to be the next Stephen King or JK Rowling. Not everyone is going to write something that is popular. But I think each of us have the words to write something important.]
