The second part to my totally ginchtastic post is, well, when your a writer. So let’s just jump into this.
1. The talk.
As a writer, your destined to get a talk, specifically the talk. You know, the one where people inform you that writing can’t be your sole career, and you need a back up. It happens soooo many times.
2. LEMME SEE!
This one is flat out self explanatory-it’s the pressuring every writer loathes, but deep down inside longs for, in hopes of some great writer asking to read your work.
You kinda wish this, I should say.
3. Between the Lines
Now, for me, personally, I’m a between the lines kinda gal.
If I let you review my work-and you give me a vague over view, but I’ve also read about six different sub-texts-heck, I’ve translated it through the scraps of varying languages I know (I pick up words from conversations and TV shows). It’s a problem, and from what I’ve heard, its an all-around-writer deal. So note: When Reviewing a Writers Piece, don’t leave room for subtext parcing.
4. We’re never here.
Legit, I’m almost positive every single writer has a tendency to get a little…daydreamy, and when we do, good luck bringing us back-because we’re never really here.
5. We’re late
Because we came up with an idea, not because we overslept.
6. We never Really Sleep
Sleep is over rated, finishing this chapter, this, this is important.
I can get my nine hours when I’m retired-or dead. Most likely when I’m dead.
7. We’re exhausted, and hungry, All.The.Time.
Really, the entire reason is we’ve become one with writing our characters, so really, we’re living as someone else (but not in a creepy way).
8. Ships for All
As a writer, you’ve gotta be clever, specifically, you’ve gotta be able to make a ship-name, and pull up ten different fan-fic ideas for anyone-at the drop off the hat.
Because we’re writers, and you’re there for our romance fix.
9. We pull from life
If you ever get the blessing of reading our pre-edited/published work, and you notice pieces of our life in our work-thats because it is. Don’t freak out if you find yourself in the story; go with it, because nine times out of ten, it’s not half bad for the story.
10. We aren’t Confident
Don’t get us wrong, we believe our stories can make it, we believe these stories are world changers, we just aren’t confident in ourselves yet. I’m seeing that this post is geared to writers in my generatkon, mainly because we’re an emotional generation, and despite societies thoughts, we know when and when we can’t handle things.
So if you think the stories good, support the author, not just the work, because they’re the non-confident ones.
And that’s what happens when I’m a writer. I swear I’m one in a million, but I’m gonna take a shot in the dark and say theirs others.
Anybody find these relatable? If so, which ones? Also, what’s the hardest part for you with writing-I’m editing, and then I have a query letter.
I hate it, so, so much.
