How to Become a Fiction Writer
Pretend to write something down and then pretend to read over it. Pretend to edit and revise. This will give you something to pretend to think about the rest of the day when you should be doing other things.
After you've pretended to write an entire story, you can pretend to look for places to publish it. Pretend to submit it. Pretend to be disappointed by rejection, and pretend to keep trying. One day you can pretend to be published.
That's how you become a fiction writer. Your first fictional creation is yourself.
