Being a writer has a cost. We wander around with our heads in the clouds, and as we get older, can wander off in the middle of a sentence…
You might be a writer if:
- You view life as source material.
- Problems and conflict aren’t total losses.
- When you hear about a new kind of torture, you file it away for future use.
- Friends are friends forever, even if it is only on paper.
- You read a magazine article and your eyes glaze over and your brain’s tachometer maxes out.
- Old photographs can do the same thing.
- You savor your dreams like appetizers to a future main course.
- You often realize you have no idea what’s going on in the TV show you’re watching.
- Your significant other trails off speaking because they realize you’re not really here right now.
- You really don’t mind hearing about other people’s woes.
As you can see, it can be hard on relationships. But cataloging life is your jam.
