I’m reading his book, Write a Novel and Get it Published, and here’s the entire paragraph that contains this quote:
“If you are the sort of person to be intimidated by the weight of books that have already been written, or are unsure of your talent or your vocation, take heart. There is no such personage as a ‘writer’. If you worry that you don’t possess that special ingredient other writers have, particularly the writers you admire — don’t. There is only one qualification to be a writer: human beingness.” – Nigel Watts
Have a fulfilling week of writing.
