I’m really confused on this one. Is it true that you’re a writer until you’re published and then you’re an author? Don’t authors write too? And what about novelists (which is how Marjorie has me listed?) And what am I? I think of myself as a writer, I introduce myself (if someone asks) as a writer. I like the term writer.
So this is my unofficial poll, if anyone’s out there – what do you call yourself and why?
