How do you become a writer?

Answer: you write.

Honestly, why do people ask that question? Does anybody ever come up to a musician and say, Tell me, tell me – How should I become a tuba player? No! it's too obvious. If you want to be a tuba player you get a tuba, and some tuba music. And you ask the neighbors to move away or put cotton in their ears. And probably you get a tuba teacher, because there are quite a lot of objective rules and techniques both to written music and to tuba performance. And then you sit down and you play the tuba, every day, every week, every month, year after year, until you are good at playing the tuba.

It is exactly the same with writing. You sit down and you do it; and you do it, and you do it, until you have learned how to do it.

— Ursula Le Guin in "Talking About Writing" (from "The Language of the Night"; The Women's Press 1979, 1989)

You introduced i to Ursula Statto. I bought "Pacifism as a map" on Kindle in 2015 as a result.
