The New Year has just gotten underway, and I wanted to have a little fun. I’ve been reading “You might be a writer IF…” posts and cracking up. I’ve decided to make up a few myself and then throw it out to you great readers to come up with your own. I’ll send an ARC of LIVER LET DIE (when it becomes available) to the one that makes me laugh the most. (I’ll enlist the help of my fellow blogmates to actually pick a winner. So here goes mine:
If someone with a cold tells you he's blocked and you suggest he read a good book until his muse returns...you might be a writer.
If you have a special gadget on your night stand that lights up when you pull out the pen for writing down great dialogue that comes to you at two AM….you might be a writer.
If for two solid weeks, you eat bologna sandwiches and Hostess HoHOs because that’s what your heroine likes…..you might be a writer.
If you’re convinced your writing sucks one day, then dream about how brilliant you are the next….you might be a writer.
If you love finding unusual ways of killing people…you might be a writer.
If your TBR pile is higher than a crackhead neighbor…you might be a writer.
If when you read a book, you wonder why they’re published and you’re not…you might be a writer.
If when you read a book you are ready to give up your dream because you’ll never be as good as XXX…you might be a writer.
If someone tells you they got a request for a full and you don’t say full what?...you might be a writer.
If your idea of romance is keeping two people apart for a long time and making them as miserable as you can, you might be a writer.
If someone mentions your voice is weak when you have laryngitis and you rush home to hone up on your craft….you might be a writer.
If you think every herring is red…you might be a writer. (I stole this one!!)
If you start crying because of something you’ve done to a fictitious character….you might be a writer.
And my favorite one:
If you are on the watch list for Homeland Security because you researched weapons of mass destruction and terrorism,,,.you might be a writer.
I do or have done all of the above. Oh hell! I’m a writer.
Now let me hear yours. Remember the free ARC, so make it good. You can enter as many times as you like, but put each one in a different comment. They have to be original. No cheating, people.
