You Might Be A Writer If…
* It’s impossible to enjoy a hot cup of tea while working on a story–you get so caught up in finding the perfect words, that by the time you remember your tea, it’s cold.
*You despise words like “good”, “bad”, “fine”, and “okay”. Seriously, how non-descriptive can you get?
* Learning new words is fun! So is resurrecting older locutions to enhance regular confabulations. (Boom. New vocab words right there.)
*There’s a notebook on your nightstand…and in your backpack…and possibly the car…inspiration could come at any moment, you have to be ready.
*You have a reputation for sending really long texts.
*When in doubt, journals are always a safe gift for someone to give you. Goodness knows,
you’ll need a new journal soon enough.
*Sometimes, you think about how you’d describe various friends if they were a character in a book. Or various people you aren’t as fond of. I mean, somebody had to be the inspiration for Cruella De Vil…right?
*There’s a lot going on inside your mind. You’ve probably got a crazy imagination and can whip up the most fantastic scenarios ever. Which can be pretty entertaining…unless you overthink things and freak yourself out.
*Writing assignments usually aren’t too terrible.You are the artist and the pen and paper (or computer) are your paintbrush and canvas. Creating a masterpiece in 500 words or less? Challenge accepted.
