10 Reasons You Might Be . . . A Writer

Friday, October 21, 2011
1) If your computer’s delete key is more worn than the letter keys, you might be a writer.
2) If you have enough rejection letters to wallpaper your entire house, you might be a writer.
3) If looking up at the St. Louis Arch causes you to think about your story arc, you might be a writer.
4) If you’ve scribbled a story idea on toilette paper while using a public bathroom, you might be a writer.
5) If you Google words like "climax", "fantasy", and "third person" without the intention of getting off, you might be a writer.
6) If you Google the words "Hero" and "Heroine" and aren’t looking for a bite to eat and a quick fix, you might be a writer.
7) If NaNoWriMo is your email password, you might be a writer.
8) If hardly anybody sees or hears from you throughout November, you might be a writer.
9) If you’ve been paid a kill fee and have no intention of taking a life, you might be a writer.
10) If you proofread everything (cereal boxes, other people's Facebook posts, T-shirts, closed captioning on TV), you might be a writer.

And one final thought:
I do believe everybody has at least one book in them. My guess is it resides in the stomach. It’s way out? The same as food. First books usually are shitty.
