Stuff Writers Say #1

I write and say a lot of weird things, but don't we all? It's a writer thing. Here are some captions from my old instagram posts. I hope you can relate, or at least have a laugh at me. Don't worry. I don't mind.

Writer perfectionism: "Sometimes I wish my novel would edit itself, but then I realize I'd have to redo all of the work anyway because only I can do it right."

How poetic: "I just wrote an essay on failure. The subject sounds kind of depressing, but writing it filled me with so much positivity and hope that the paper almost learned to fly."
Writing always makes me feel better. That's why I do it. If I feel hopeless, I write it out, and my mindset shifts as the words flow on. Suddenly I'm happy, relieved and calm. It's almost like praying.

Reason to keep writing , even when it's hard: "Just shut up and write my story. Sincerely, MC."

When I ranted about how stupid drugs are: "Nerds are way cooler. We get high on the smell of books."

I just can't stop daydreaming about fictional places: "It frightens me that I'll be legally an adult this year. Please, Peter Pan, don't be too late. I need to see Neverland!"

"I can't write in public because I make these weird faces and people stare."
Just stare back!

"I've recently turned into a hardcore listmaker. Stuff I have lists for: daily to-do, weekly to-do, monthly to-do, yearly to-do:s for the next five years, idea lists, dream lists, books I'll write one day, stuff I want to do, things I have to try, foods I love, books I've loved, books I hate, movies I love, movies I'd burn, all of my notebooks and what to write in them.... It doesn't even end here. Should I stop and calm down? I think not."

I think I did.
When I ran out of post-it notes.
It was a sad day.

"I never have a problem with the internet while I write. It's just research."
You mean, "research"? On pinterest? Yeah, sure.

"Yesterday I googled how long it takes for a human body to burn up. Now I'm just waiting for the cops to knock on my door."
Last week I learned how to stab and strangle without killing the person...

Yep. We're strange, rare, unique creatures. And the weirder, the merrier. Isn't that how it goes??

Happy writing! Stay weird, weirdos :)
