No one was born a writer. I have never ever heard of childbirth comprising a baby with a computer or paper and pens. Writing is an invention of the mind. People figured out how to keep their thoughts into media formats. Writing is one of the many media formats. It means anyone can write as long as one has the ability and passion to do so. Some are really great authors, but environment favours others. However, this should not discourage anyone from enjoying the gift of writing. Start by writing short stories for children in orphanages lacking reading materials. Your writing skills are likely to improve.
