Apologies to Jeff Foxworthy. This came to me last night as I was desperately trying to sleep. Here goes:
You might be a writer if...
You hear voices in your head, and you're not under supervised medical care.
You have wallpapered a room with rejection slips.
You know what onomatopoeia is.
You have a running tab at the post office.
You have a love/hate relationship with words.
Your blog has the words "author, write(r), or read(er)" in it, interspersed with words like mad, crazy, rambling, and delusional.
You have the bestseller lists bookmarked.
You have highlighted your "Guide to Literary Agents" so much it looks like skittles lost their life on the pages.
And finally. You might be a writer if...when you put your manuscript to bed, it's with you.
