You May Be a Writer...
I know the ninja master is busy putting the ISWG Anthology together, but fortunately, he has the awesomeness of Kristin Smith, Elsie, Suzanne Furness, and Fundy Blue to be our wise co-hosts :)
You can join the IWSG by following the magic link HERE! and signing up. Easy, right?
And look for this great read coming soon!
You may be a writer if…
You read a great book and it depresses you with its stellar brilliance that you fear you lack
You read a horrible book and it depresses you because it got a contract and you didn’t
You consider eavesdropping research
You Spend hours wrestling, no searching…ooh wait…possibly hunting? No, no rifling…yes! You spend hours rifling through words for the perfect one for each sentence
You have visons of book covers dancing in your head
Your hope to money ratio is 100:1…AKA you dream big, and cash out small
Your characters pester you day and night to tell their story because their imaginary fingers can’t hold a pen
You often get asked if you’re an epileptic having a petit mal seizure when you stop mid conversation to think
You love the smell of a library, and agree it’s so unique, words cannot describe it
You get excited when faced with a blank page, and then get a little more excited when it’s filled
You feel as nervous sending your word baby out into the world as you did sending your human baby to kindergarten
You never know when to quit. Rejection after rejection, you keep coming back like a junkie looking for a fix
*Really seriously, what does a library smell like?
