Writing is Art – Voltaire

I never thought of myself as an artist.

I always wished I could draw, paint, sketch, etc. but I’ve never moved beyond stick figures and paint-by-number.

But then I read this:


And then I realized I AM an artist, a word artist. 

I put words to paper each and every day, and these eventually turn into a story.

It’s really no different than individual strokes an artist makes that turn into a picture.

Next time someone asks me if I’m artist, I’ll say: “Yes, I am a writer.”

  1. So true! Writing is also a way of expressing like painting. Love the way you describe the similarities between words of a writer and the strokes of a painter.
