Are You Really a Writer … Or Just a Copyist?

It seems that no one really knows what it means to be a writer. In fact, some people make the mistake of confusing a copyist with a writer. 

It might seem silly to think that we could argue about the virtues of a copyist over a writer, but the keyword-focused online marketing industry created and fueled a market that was looking for this exact type of writer.

But even now that the rules of the Internet have changed, and quality content written by real writers is all the rage, the copyists are still around.

Which brings us to tomorrow's post. Raubi Perilli helps draw a clear line in the sand. Stay tuned.
