Queries to all writer and blogger friends

Are writers born, created or can writing also be acquired?

What are most important ingredients for a writer...a novelist in particular?

How do you go about writing a novel? Is it enough to have a story and right emotional quotient?

Doesn't everyone have a story( at least) inside them?
If yes then why is it not expressed?

hey! I"m as in the woods as u are, but herez what i think...it takes time, it take a keen eye and it takes practice.It can be cultivated. I look at my blog 4-5 years ago and i look at it now, i know i've made progress :)
Read others, observe how they express their thoughts, emotions. and yes, just keep writing about anything and everything U'll pick up a few, u'll develop a few more. Let people read it and tell u their views. U'll get an idea of what's good and what's not.
You'll make progess.

I guess bhushan is correct everyone has got a story. But probably everyone has got their own way of telling it. The way you narrate it or the way u look at things will be entirely different from the way I do it.
Being a novelist I guess you need to be professional and ur story should have some selling point.
If u r thinkng of d same just go ahead.

So wud I but I wonder how that can be acquired...or do we just get it gradually...

Reply[Geetika]
Very true but then the true story will be the one told by the narrator..
Hmmm....selling point..if it can touch the hearts of people that's enough to sell....
I don't know if I can at this stage , thought I would love to!
