Top 10 Signs You Might Be a Struggling Writer   Leave a comment


  1. You have more books on your shelf than food in your pantry.
  2. Your toy store is office max.
  3. You talk, and argue with your characters as if they really exist.
  4. You get mad at said characters for being so darned stubborn to take the easy way out.
  5. You create your own endings to disappointing books and movies, and/or side stories for secondary characters.
  6. The librarians at your library know you on a first name basis.
  7. Your writing is top secret but only to those who know you.
  8. You have odd and often inappropriate reactions to scenes going on between characters in you head.
  9. You secretly long for tough experiences so you can use them as writing fodder.
  10. You find yourself correcting the bad grammar on signs, menus, tweets, school handouts, etc.

Are there any other signs of this insanity that I’ve missed?
