Ah, the writing life. You know it so well.
Endless caffeine, a little bit of procrastination, blank Word documents, piles of notebooks, bouts of self-doubt and the satisfying clickety-clack of the keyboard. All things those of us who fancy ourselves writers are intimately familiar with. (OK. Maybe it’s a lot of procrastination, not just a little.)
We took to social media to ask writers all over the world to complete the sentence, “You know you’re a writer when…” The results are hilarious, honest and heartfelt.
You know you’re a writer when…
1. You keep a journal and pen by your bed-you know, for those middle-of-the-night bursts of inspiration.
2. Every moment when you’re not writing is spent thinking about writing.
3. You take a sick day from work to stay home and work on your latest project.
4. You can never have enough coffee to keep you going.
