You Know You’re a Writer When…

In general, I don't do tags, because, while there are some clever tags out there, I don’t think they fit the vision I have for my blog. It's hard for me to enjoy them when they refer to books and characters I know nothing about. So, if I’ve been tagged by one of you and haven’t followed through on it, I apologize. I'm sure you had fun with it, but I don’t see it as something for me. 

However, I came up with a fun idea (at least in my mind) recently for a tag, and I wanted to share it with all of you. I have a couple of aims with this. 1) I’m hoping that it will be a good way to increase traffic on multiple blogs, and 2) It should increase the feeling of community among those of us who are writers. I’ve seen and participated in many of these lists before, but I’ve never seen it as a blog tag.

So, without further ado, I present: “You Know You’re a Writer When…”
  1. You must link back to the blog on which you first found the tag. This will hopefully accomplish the increased traffic that I mentioned.
  2. In your post, give 4 to 6 things that you do that are pretty unique to writers as a breed.
  3. You can’t use the same things as someone else as already posted. Get creative, people!
You know you're a writer when…
  1. You maintain that your characters consistently do things you didn’t plan. Non-writers usually look at you like you should be on your way to the insane asylum for saying this.
  2. You choose to write while your favorite TV shows are on. NaNoWriMo  increased my tendency to do this.
  3. You get some inkling of a plot idea from nearly everything anyone says.
  4. You’re tempted to induce various emotions in your loved ones just to figure out correct descriptions for those emotions.
  5. You draw characters, places, clothing and maps even when you have very little artistic ability. Drawing clothing from Raiders’ Rise was one of my distractions during NaNo. *sigh* I’m not terrible at maps, though. Hehe.
Feel free to do this even if you’re not tagged.

Now, I’ll tag:
Liv at
Leinad at
Jag Swiftstorm at
Jake at
and Rayne Speryll at
Go forth and indulge your eccentricities, my friends! Winking smile
