A person who writes is called a Scribe
Many places to write and many things to write about
Since time began man has recorded events in some way, we find evidence of this in many places and in many ways. People that lived in caves had no alphabet but they drew pictures on the wall of their cave of the animals they met and the events that happened in their world. They were some of the first writers or if you will artist story tellers.
That was probably the beginning of recorded history. Since that time, better ways to record and keep history records where man can learn from our mistakes. We record events now so the we will know what happened before and then becomes our history. History is changing and being made every day.
Writers are an important part of history and they are not always honest some thinking they can change history with a stroke of the, and some possibly have. Even in biblical times the scribes were known not to be honest , as far back 600b.c. in the time of Jeremiah the prophet they talk about the lying pen of the scribe (Jer 8: 8) "but behold the lying pen of the scribes has made it into a lie." So perhaps the old saying " the pen is mightier that the sword" is true.
The definition of a scribe is a "copier, or writer". the thing is most people could not read or write in the old times so they had to depend of the honesty and ability of another person, and they are paid in some way, they are supposedly honest about what they write.
Today we have computers and almost every one is educated and can read well enough to check up on the writer, but lies can still be told. What makes me wonder about people is why lie? you will be found out eventually.
The computer data can be changed and modified and if the person is smart he may be able to get away with the changes at least for a time, eventually it will catch up with him or her.
In this day and age we have a whole new world opened up to us, there are many places to get your articles published also there are places that specialize in publishing poetry. the list is endless and you can pick and choose how and where your work is published, and some pay you for the article , but some only pay you each time the article is read, so you can keep writing until you get enough "views" to earn a payday.
A modern-day court recorder is a lot like the scribes of biblical times, they are paid to sit in the court and take down everything that is said by the witness, judge and attorney, so there is written record of the complete trial. If any point needs to be clarified the recorder is supposed to have taken it down completely and accurately.
