So, I’ve been seeing a lot of blog posts lately with extended countdowns on how to tell if you are a REAL writer or not. A lot of them have key points like “You are a people watcher!” or “You are an insomniac!”. I even saw strange key points, in a blog that shall not be named, that said “You are a social reject!” “Your real life is boring and uneventful!” even “You think about ways to kill your enemies on paper!” What the *bleep*!!!?!?!?!?
Apparently writers are social shut-ins, who creepily watch strangers, hyped up on coffee with no real life of their own to set their scratchy, beady eyes on. (Wow, yeah, actually that does sound pretty close, now that I think of it…. 😦 whatever. )
Nevertheless! I have my own, indefinitely all inclusive, list to see if you are in fact a REAL writer….here goes!:
1. You write.
…wow…that was a short list. Let that sink in.
Well, that sums it up for me.
