Writer? Author? A Difference Worth Noting and Distinction Worth Making
Meredith Gould

Writer or author is one dilemma but before that there’s whether to call yourself either. I made the jump when my second book sold some copies. So many people say that everyone has a book in them, so one book didn’t seem like enough. I’ve never heard anyone say that everyone has two books in them, so when my second book was done I was a writer and because I also write short stories I stuck with writer rather than author, but I’m happy with both now.
