Ever had that frightened look from a non-writer? You know the one where you tell them about the pain you are planning to inflict on your main character and they take a step back..
Here are 14 reasons why non-writers might regard you as scary:
- You can often be heard muttering away to yourself.
- You have a very intense look about you.
- Your creative mood swings are extreme – goofy happy and waving your draft in the air to wailing in a corner, surrounded by the scattered bits of your torn up draft, in under ten minutes!
- You talk about people and places that don’t exist.
- You talk about the voices in your head a lot.
- No one is sure whether the ‘writers’ you claim to talk to online actually exist.
- You talk about going off to ‘that other place’ in your head a lot. No one really understands where the ‘other place’ is and what happens there.
- You talk a lot about the different ways you can kill your fictional characters.
- You let out an an evil snigger when writing a plot twist.
- You stare at people a lot.
- You spend a lot of time on your own.
- You say some weird stuff after cheese and wine.
- You lurk at the back of coffee shops.
- You let non-writers read your writing and they are left feeling uneasy and disturbed.
