You Know You're a Writer When...



You know you're a writer when...

You own a cat.

Deleting a paragraph of writing kills you inside.

You drink tea or coffee. Or both.

You have a large vocabulary of strange words.

You write the first draft like:

You never have a response to "what do you write about?"

Your bookcase is large, and full.

Sites like dictionary.com and thesaurus.com are life savers.

You shamelessly snack while writing.

You are slightly recluse/eccentric. You are not sorry. 

Editing is like this:


Do you have anything to add to my list? How do you know when you're a writer?

  11. XDDDD OPAL THESE ARE ALL PERFECT. Just so you know. I think the drinking of tea and/or coffee is the most perfect, though. Because they are.
