"It is heard that the writer is writing a book."
Translation:Ακούγεται ότι ο συγγραφέας γράφει ένα βιβλίο.
Um, I must say I haven't heard this one being used instead of συγγραφέας, not even once. o.O
Not really, it's not wrong. However, I don't seem to be able to find this sentence in the incubator. It might just be one of those "zombie sentences", that were deleted or fixed yet they are still around on Strengthen. Did you find this on Strengthen? :/
