#TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter

#TenThingsNotToSayToAWriter is trending on Twitter.IMG_0858

My favorites are:

*So what’s your real job then?

*I’m so jealous! Being a writer is so easy! I’d love to be able to make stuff up all day and get paid for it.

*You should write a book about me.

*But what do you actually do all day?

*You’re STILL writing that book?

*Can you help me with this? It’s not like you’re doing anything important.

*So glad you’ve found an outlet to deal with your issues.

And so on and so forth.

What’s your top thing not to say to a writer?

  1. Haha, this was great. I’m actually very new to the whole idea of considering myself a writer. Right now, I’m still in the excitement phase. But I’m sure I’ll get these responses from some people when they ask, “so what are you doing with your life now?”

    Such a hilarious post but sooo spot on! Sometimes it’s not even expressed in words but by implication. Lets keep writing regardless…

    • Yeah, usually, people just don’t get it. I always try to avoid mentioning that I write, and if it comes up, I do my best to change the topic. I have accepted that I can’t change the other person’s point of view.
