You Might Be A Writer If...

My writer friend Ane Mulligan posted this on her blog, and she gave me permission to share it with you.

You Might Be A Writer If...

... if chocolate and coffee are two of the four major food groups in your diet.

... you include an SASE with all correspondence-even letters to your mother.

... you can't resist pointing out grammatical errors on news stations' scrolling bar.

... your friends say they'll kill you if you whisper, "That was in the end of the first act" during a movie one more time.

... in a house fire, you'd save your computer, your copy of Sally Stuart's Writer's Market Guide, then your grandmother's jewelry.

... during church sermons, you find yourself thinking, "This could be tighter."

... you can't balance a checkbook, but your submission log is cross referenced and goes back to 2003.

... you decide by the end of the first page of a novel that the author didn't have an editor.

... when your husband suggests a world cruise you ask, "Is there Internet access?"

... your answering machine says, "Hi, I'm not here right now. Please leave a query and the synopsis of your proposed message, and I'll let you know whether to call back."

... when you nail a sentence, you're pretty sure you know how Moses felt parting the Red Sea.

I definitely fit a few of those! But the whole reason I want to go on a cruise is so there aren't any distractions except a great view!

Hysterical. I resemble a lot of those descriptions!

LOL. I'm definitely a writer.
