It’s 2014 and you’ve decided this is the year you will pursue your dream of being a writer. But how do you know if you are cut out to be one. Here is my take on it.
You might be a writer if you have to turn everyday experiences into a story.
You might be writer if you find yourself rewriting famous quotes for clarity.
You might be writer if you stay up nights replotting the script of your favorite TV show.
You might be writer if you can find devotional material in the dog vomiting on the rug.
You might be writer if you can’t stop writing and resort to jotting story ideas on your arm when you run out of paper.
You might be writer if you notice typos and misspellings in best sellers
You might be writer if you forget to eat because the words are flowing on to the page faster than you can think them.
You might be writer if you gain ten pounds from the chocolate you use to sustain you while rewriting that one sentence over and over for days on end.
You might be writer if you trip over the stacks of writing tomes surrounding your desk.
And lastly you might be a writer because the love of words on a page keeps you from cleaning your house, mowing your lawn and bathing your children.
Of course, you’ll never know if you are really a writer if you don’t ever write!
How do you decide you might be a writer?
