You Know You're a Writer When...
...The doctor tells you that you have terminal cancer, and you think, 'I can use this.'
...You have an opinion on the serial comma.
...All your bedspreads have ink stains on them.
...You liked the book better than the movie.
...You refuse to get rid of any book you've read, even the ones you hated, such as The Bridges of Madison County.
...You use em-dashes and semicolons in your text messages.
...You have a file on each member of your family.
...If they paid you not to write, you would write anyway.
--from the book You Know You're a Writer When, by Adair Lara, former San Francisco Chronicle columnist and founder of Matchwriters.com.
