How do you even know if you’re a good writer?

Good writing (and good writers) are subjective of course, but I think the true mark of a good writer is simply that they can create emotion in readers. A good writer is anyone who can give someone else their writing and have that person come away both having felt something and being happy that they felt that thing.

#there’s good skills that help with this obviously  #like honing your voice and learning pacing and building good character arcs and putting together solid plots  #but in the end of the day the good writer is the one who makes someone want to read
