Scribe or Author

“A scribe puts words down on paper; an author puts ideas down on paper.”

Are you a scribe or an author. Under the definition above, many bloggers are scribes. I’m a scribe, but I’m trying to be an author.

Not coincidentally, this is almost the same argument as in Clear and Simple as the Truth. That is, thinking precedes writing.
