Writers, are you Amateurs or Professionals?

Amateur or Professional?
Amateur or Professional?

Professional writers write for money. Amateurs write for enjoyment. If you are writing with no expectation of being paid, you are an amateur.”

Do you agree?

This is what I’m discussing at Misha Gericke’s blog today. Go weigh in, please, and check out what other writers have to say.

    I write for pleasure. I’ve never been paid nor do I expect that to happen. I’m an amateur. If I were to be paid? I’d still like to think of myself as an amateur. The pressure is much less. :)

    I guess I agree. This factor must necessarily come into play. Even if someone loves writing, they wouldn’t write some crappy stuff for some weird website, just because they love to write. A pro would hover, take it up as a job and do it.
    Professional writers can be amaetuers but amaetuers can progress to being pros…
