Author or Writer - Distinction Made Clear

MB900412758 The line between author and writer can easily get fuzzy today. But the lowdown is that if you're an author, you conceptualized the idea, got to work, and got a book published.

Regarding the fuzziness, with the ease of digitization and e-publishing, creating a perfectly straight line is easy - if you're published with an ISBN number by the Library of Congress, you're an author! No fuzziness.

Are you an author or writer?
