You Might Be A Writer...

If changing the placement of adverbs in a sentence can occupy hours of your time ... you might be a writer.

If you love naming town, characters, teddy bears, sofas ... you might be a writer.

If you find typos and POV errors in books ... you might be a writer.

If you narrate the mundane duties of your daily life ... you might be a writer.

If you describe a sunset, rainbow, or storm in metaphors and similes ... you might be a writer.

If you wear a tiar when you sit at your computer - to help the 'flow of thoughts' .. you might be a writer.

If you get twitchy if you don't phrase a paragraph for 24 hours ... you might be a writer.

If you write in a journal, diary, blog, bathroom wall ... you might be a writer.

Ink on your fingers or keyboard impressions on your palms? Yup. You're a writer.

If you feel that Writer's Block is an actual, diagnosable disease ... you might be a writer.

If your to-read pile of books is taller than your fridge ... you might be a writer.

If you believe you are the next Shakespeare, Austen, or Poe ... you might be a writer.

If you love telling anecdotes. Again and again. And sometimes change the ending for a better response ... you might be a writer.

I agree, especially with your last item. My dad never told a story the same way twice. He was a creative person, and wrote in his head while making "antiques" in the basement.

For some, gilding the lily qualifies you as a writer.
