Why Writers Need Supportive Non-Writer friends #writers #writing

 

 

Writer friends are important for writers, but so too are supportive non-writer friends. Friends who have no interest in writing but go out of their way to support you.

Here are 8 reasons why a writer needs a supportive non-writer friend:

  1. When you are having a creative breakdown and not making any sense, your supportive non-writer friend will make no attempt to understand your writing gibberish. They know they have another role to play – putting the kettle on to make you a nice cup of tea or pouring you a glass of wine.
  2. Your supportive non-writer friend will allow you to wallow for a bit in your ‘I want to quit writing my book’ mood and then tell you to get a grip of yourself. You both know you can’t give writing up.
  3. When you are having a bad day in general your supportive non-writer friend will make you smile instantly by saying stuff like “I read your blog the other day and it made me laugh!” and “you should really write that book!” – its like they know which of your buttons to press to get you smiling again.
  4. A supportive non-writer friend doesn’t write so it can be refreshing (after you have been at the writing coal face for hours) to talk about something other than writing.
  5. A supportive non-writer friend will never smirk at the mention of your writing.
  6. A supportive non-writer friend will faithfully read your work when its published (even if it is dire).
  7. A supportive non-writer friend will buy you creative based gifts for your birthday / Christmas.
  8. They will be there for you whatever happens with your writing- whether you become a successful novelist, a successful blogger or someone who just enjoys to write.

 

Supportive non-writer friends are special human beings 🙂
