In honor of the Thanksgiving holiday this week (in America), I thought it might be fun to take a day off from the “business” side and have a bit of fun with this writing thing we love.
You know you’re a writer when:
…you have baby name websites saved on your computer.
…you make random odd expressions because you’re checking to see if you described them correctly.
…your Google search history is definitely NSFW and maybe a little illegal.
…you have all the best ideas for your manuscript when you’re doing something else.
…you rewrite everything you read.
…you always make sure to use proper grammar, even in text messages.
And a few more classics:

The road to hell is paved with adverbs. (Stephen King)
Writers spend three years rearranging 26 letters of the alphabet. It’s enough to make you lose your mind, day by day. (Richard Price)
