Ahhhh, the wonderfully eccentric world of The Writer.
There are so many stereotypes out there… and I am proud to be the stereotypically weird and touchy writer-type.
I leave sticky-notes in strange places,
with notations that make sense to no one but me…
- “blue corrug… spell corrigated? corri, corru. BUY CARDBOARD!!!”
- “green trees did it. symbolism??”
- “cat article deadline check witches”
- “10am MAT signs”
I read. A lot. In weird places.
Here is an actual conversation I had with The Husband recently:
H- “Are you done reading yet? I’m hungry.”
Me- “No… kitchen is open.”
H- “You know there is a whole other world out here, in 3D.”
Me- “This one is more interesting. Besides, I’m researching.”
H- “That’s a romance novel.”
Me- “I needed 37 euphemisms for ‘penis’.”
I also can relate to each of these great cards…
which would be a treat to any Writer you know who might need a laugh.
To the writer who lives and breathes his characters until weeks after the writing is done:
To the Touchy Writer who is an absolute BEAR when a deadline is looming and Writer’s Block has set in:
To the Writer who has a Love/Hate relationship with an editor:
To the writer who does her best work in her bathrobe at 3am, on the couch, with coffee and HBO:
To the writer who will take you out for using the words “real job”:
