Living With A Writer

Writers are an interesting breed. Their minds are consumed with plots, characters and fictional towns. When I began creating stories, I gave my husband some tips about living with a writer: 
  • Wear your emotional seatbelt. I'll have strange ups and downs, which will affect the mood of the rest of the family. In a matter of a few hours, I can go from out-of-the-world happy to tossing my "how to" books out the window and onto the front lawn.
  • Any odd thing you say or do will be used in my next book.
  • If we're in a restaurant, bowling alley or church, I will invent stories about everyone and everything. Key word is invent. If you share with family or friends, they'll think you're insane.
  • When you're drawn into an amazing conversation between myself and another writer, don't be overly disappointed when you realize we're talking about a fictional person, place and thing.
  • If you get tired of pizza and Chinese takeout three nights/week, you'll find yourself at the stove with a wooden spatula in your hand.
  • When you wake up in the middle of the night and I'm scribbling on a tablet in the dark while humming or chuckling, I will not hurt you. Unless you interrupt me.
  • After I've sent in a submission, I will check my email 14,000 times/day. Honestly, I'm not having an affair.
  • Embrace my creativity, because writers make the world a better place.
