A writer is only a writer when writing

Visible to anyone in the world

‘A writer only feels he or she is a writer at the point of performance, the moment of writing. Do anything else, even related activities like research or background reading, and the claim seems fraudulent. A writer is only a writer when writing. The rest is marking time'. Alan Bennett, Untold Stories (2006)
