to address your curiosity, that's just what it is: to receive "writers" status does mean that you compete and run with the topic asked for. that's how
you get it. and then people star and flag you if they like your story. to be honest, i did not read your story because it was just too long for me. i
have sooooo many interests and i'm sooooo slow that i have to prioritize. the days are so short.
but it's not a big deal. that status alone does not make you a writer.
you are a writer! i think to be member on ats does mean to be a writer. people here write. some write a lot. the more you write the more a writer you
are. so, having said that, i'm not a writer. i mean you would hardly know me as a member since i hardly write. now i have the writer status and i
learned to live with it.
then there is the question of whether one is a good writer or not. once in a while i like to write a story. unlike you, the topics do inspire me, it
gets my fantasy flowing. but i don't think i'm such a good writer, i'm really stuck with a vocabulary that i acquired over the years. i can not
express myself as intricate as i wish or could in a language i speak more fluently.
therefore i think you would have earned it more to be labelled a "writer". i would gladly give you my writer status. just keep trying, enter stories,
you are good !
