I posted this on my personal Facebook page one day, and it gave a few people a chuckle or two. I figured, I should also share with you. Enjoy!
So for anyone who is ever curious what it’s like to be a writer, let me give you a brief example of my writing time.
12:40- Man this is great, the words are just flowing. I’m an awesome writer.
12:42- Crap. I’ve hit a wall. No one would really say that. This totally sucks.
12:45- Blocked. I’m completely blocked. I’m washed up. Who am I kidding? I can’t do this.
12:46-I will not give up. I will not give up.
12:47- I need a snack. Chocolate will get the thoughts flowing again.
12:48- Where are the cookies? (Searches the pantry)
1:10- (The kitchen is now in shambles) I have to make a cookie run. I need cookies. There are no cookies here.
1:30- Sits back at computer again with bag of Oreos. Stares at the screen. Yep, the words will start flowing again. Any minute now.
1:45- Still staring. Cookie crumbs now cover my keyboard. Something will come. Yep. It will happen. Any minute now. Oreo’s never fail me.
1:48-Duh! (Slaps head with palm of hand.) Why didn’t I see that typo before. I knew it would come back. I totally rock this writing thing.
1:50- Whew! I’m done. Man, I must have wrote like 2000 words or more because I am a totally awesome, great writer. Hollywood will be banging on my door for rights to this one. Yep! Sure they will.
1:51 Checks word count. I’ve written 100. Eat more cookies and cry .
