You Know You’re a Writer When…

What sets writer’s apart from other people? Here are some of my favorite examples:

1–You hear the word heroine and you think character, not drug.
2–Your daughter writes a short story romance and you think, Yeah! and her fourth grade teacher is horrified.
3–Your daughter asks for an example that doesn’t involve a body count or other startling example.
4–You stay awake mentally rewriting the ending of the movie you just saw or the book you just finished.
5–You read an interesting fact and think about ways that it will torture your characters.
6–You like conflict.
7–You have notebooks full of ideas that could be used against you in a court of law.
8–GMC is neither a cereal company nor a car manufacturer.
9–Upon hearing a story, you want to ask how it made him/her/them feel.
And lastly…
10–You like those voices in your head and wouldn’t take medication to get rid of them, even though they tell you to do bad things to your characters.
