A writer is a former norm.

There are two broad categories of writers:

Fiction Writers: who tell deliberate lies.
Non-Fiction Writers: who tell accidental lies.

Despite what is generally believed, it is possible for writers to revert to being norms again. All that is required is to fail to publish anything for a period of five years or for one's Beerbohm rating to fall to exactly zero.
