You’re a writer if…

You spend more time in front of your computer, whether that be a desktop, laptop, or tablet with a blue tooth keyboard, than you do, doing just about anything else (psst…you’ve got a problem, okay not really).

You’re a writer if…

You geek out over dorky writer type stuff, like replacement inkjet cartridges, pencils with cool messages on them, or this Qwerkywriter.

So, ummm…. (clearing throat), if anyone was looking for Christmas ideas for yours truly, look no further, although Papermate Clearpoint mechanical pencils are my jam!

 

You’re a writer if…

Any type of bottom clothing that contains drawstrings, or elastic is your fashion of choice. Comfortability is a must for those of us that deem words more important than that new Free People dress, and beautiful black ballet inspired wedges. A girl can dream, but most of the time Yoga pants will do just fine. I mean look at all you can do in them…

You’re a writer if…

You can find random receipts in either your pockets, or your purse filled with ideas, or writing that you just had to jot down that very moment. We come across like trash collecting hoarders when really, don’t judge, these tattered receipts could be the next bestseller!

You’re a writer if…

All you do is read when you’re not writing, even if it’s inappropriate, or maybe…illegal. Like say you’re in bumper to bumper Los Angeles traffic. Just don’t kill anyone! Actually, just don’t do it! Wait until you’re at least out of the car to read, but I understand the urge.

You’re a writer if…

You dream of the day when you’re successful because of your writing. If you’ve already published, then you imagine writing something else, and the cycle continues on a loop.

You’re a writer if…

People look at you funny because they think you’re mindlessly staring at a wall. They think your brain is broken, and on a repetitive loop of nothingness when really you’re just thinking up your newest story idea. Seriously, you’re not crazy at all.

 

You’re a writer if…

You collect words. Yeah, that’s right. I said it. You hoard words, filing them away to use them and blow someone’s mind later because you are a word nerd, and you’re proud of it. Like eccendentesiast, and lalochezia, or pregustator, or perhaps cacoethes. I know, crazy right, but if you’ve just looked these words up, or jotted them down on a post-it, or notebook, you have a problem: you’re a writer with nasty word hoarding problem.

You’re a writer if…

You simply have to write, and you do it often. You even do it when you don’t want to do it because writing is more than a hobby, a career, a chore. It’s therapeutic and because you can find inspiration in everything and everywhere you simply cannot turn your back on it. Keep at it.
