7 Problems Writers Have

  1. “Oh, you’re a writer? What do you write about?”

Answer: things.

RUN AWAAY

  1. “You finished a book? Cool! What’s it about?”

See above.

castle is flabbergasted

  1. “Why have you looked at so many different baby naming websites? Is there something you want to tell me?”

I DON’T EVEN TALK TO BOYS MOM HOW THE HELL COULD I GET PREGNANT. Also, alternatively: when a family member comes over to look at the screen and you have like ten nameberry.com tabs open, and you have the almost irrepressible urge to pre-emptively scream, “I AM WORKING ON A CHARACTER, OKAY?” (Especially applicable if it’s a grandmother or aunt or similar.)

merida is stressed

  1. “Dude, are you even paying attention?”

No. My character is running around my head and screaming, “PAY ATTENTION TO ME! PAY ATTENTION TO ME!” Sorry.

challenge accepted

  1. “Alex, you haven’t been outside in three days.”

“I’M EDITING, OKAY?” (Bonus points if said while in pajamas and surrounded by junk food.)

  1. “It’s three A.M. Why are you awake?”

“BECAUSE I CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THIS SCENE. I JUST NEED TO WRITE IT OUT, OKAY?”

  1. Said while re-reading angsty stuff you’ve written: “Oh, I am so evil.”

ALL MY PLANS MWAHAHAHA

(Then, shortly after: “WHY AM I SO EVIL OH MY GOD MY POOR CHARACTERS.”)

whYYYY

(In short, if you’re looking for .GIFs, I’m your girl.)

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Thanks
