A writer friend once told me that she knows when she is a good writer when she can write one or two pieces one after the other and like what she wrote to the point that yes it can be sent for publication. And I agree her writings are often published in online magazines. So I was wondering how many people have actually experienced that or was it merely a pompous thing to say. I tended to believe that all writings- especially poetry- involve some refining phase which is for me the editing phase. And sure it happens that you write something upon inspiration and that same day it turns out to be very good, does that mean you are now a good writer/poet??
