You know you're a writer when...(revisited)

You know you're a writer when....
  1. Your childrens' baby books have little recorded info--but your writing notebook is full of stories from their childhoods.

  2. Your coffee shop meeting is interrupted by a daydream of whether a coffee shop would be a good setting for a murder mystery.

  3. You get into discussions about possible murder mystery main characters with a massage therapist, a manicurist, and a dream interpreter.

  4. You think of naps as "creativity generators."

  5. You have trouble driving because you keep getting distracted by great article and story ideas.

  6. All news stories go through your writing filter: Would this be a good article topic? Would this help me develop an interesting culture or character?

  7. Your children critique the novels they read.

  8. You would polish those stories for submission, except you have the most amazing idea for a new story....

  9. When deprived of writing time, you get insomnia.

  10. You can deal with most stress (dentist appointments, flu shots, cocktail parties) by intensely concentrating on your latest WIP.
