You might be a writer

Over at Thomas Pryce's Unnatural Selection blog, he has a whole list of symptoms that show, "you might be a writer."

Some of my favorites are-

If you are sometimes hesitant to even refer to yourself as a writer… might be a writer.

If the word rewrite brings you a tinge of panic… might be a writer.

If you’d rather be writing even more than you’d rather be fishing right now… might be a writer.

If you’ve ever searched through the phone book to find the perfect name for a fictional character… might be a writer.

If you feel that Hallmark should make a sympathy card to send to friends suffering from writers block… might be a writer.

Well just going off the first one I must be a writer. I'll check out the link and see if it gets any better. :-)

I might be a reader and a laugher for sure!

Absolutely, and they are a few more gems over there.


You're certainly a writer of blogs.

What if you're fishing for words?

Teach a man to fish, and he writes for a lifetime at Field and Stream.

Nice one!

Thanks for the recognition Mr. Brown. Nice vibe you got going on over here. I'll be checking in.
