defination of a writer

by chaotarroo

One in whom the vanity of all men is so vastly exaggerated he finds it sheer impossibility to hold it in. His over empowering impulse is so gyrate over his fellow men, flapping his wings and emitting defiant yells. This being forbidden by police of all civilized countries, he takes it out by putting his yells on the paper.

– H.L. Mencken
