Is this why writing is so hard?

To write we must have a clear head. Yikes!

David McCullough quote - Writing is thinking.

Improving Your Writing Will Improve Your Thinking

Okay…

Which comes first thinking or writing? Writing or thinking? What about ideas first, then writing/thinking???

Ouch, think I just got an idea and my brain hurts.

Do people think you’re weird?

Then you might be a writer.

I think this week deserves a little levity. I don’t know about you, but I could use a smile and a bit of encouragement.

My thanks to Jacqui Murray for a light-hearted article for writers.

7 Things Writers Can Do No One Else Can (or Wants to) 

After reading her post, as a Southerner, I immediately thought of Jeff Foxworthy and his “You might be a Redneck if…” comedy routine. (Don’t click on Jeff’s link if you are easily offended.)

7 quirks that are a writer’s superpower.

  1. If you can invent words no one else can understand… You might be a writer. (Writers invent words and move to our own beat.)
  2. If you eavesdrop on diners and stare, unapologetically at strangers… You might be a writer.
  3. If you dress like a hobo one day and a diva the next… You might be a writer.
  4. If a fire breaks out in your home, the first thing you grab is your Kindle… You might be a writer. (A writer always needs something to read.)
  5. If you go around talking to no one… You might be a writer.
  6. If you drop yourself between the pages of a story… You might be a writer.
  7. If you’ve developed alligator hide from so many rejections… You might be a writer. (No one hears the word NO more than a writer.)

What odd superpower to you attribute to being a writer?

Do you have another quirk to add to the list?

Most popular posts of the past 7 years

My how time flies-7 years and counting.

Some days I find it hard to believe I’ve been on WordPress that long.

Other days, I feel as though I’ve been writing blog posts for a zillion years. LOL

Over time, my blog has evolved and changed several times. I’ve written 3 books for children, dabbled with coloring books and journals. I’ve had several flash fiction stories published and entered a few contests. (Placed but never brought the top trophy home.)

So, in honor of me sticking with one thing for 7 years, I’m sharing 7 popular posts. One for each year. Please don’t be too critical of the really old ones.

It’s been a wonderful, maddening journey where I’ve met great writers who have encouraged and helped me improve my craft. Thanks, to everyone for hanging in there with me.

I hope you enjoy my walk down memory lane.

  5.   –Do You know how to write a book review? 
  6.  – How to take your idea to story
  7.   – You need to double your amazon security
I love reading your comments and feedback. Please share your thoughts. Thanks!
