1) Caffeine is a needed drug. Long hours spent in front of the computer promoting, organizing, blogging, writing, website management, and the list goes on and on regarding the responsibilities a writer has, and the hours never end
2) When our book comes out, we have edits we want to make. A piece of writing is never done.
3) We are never sure if the book we just finished is good or not, and even then, the opinion of whether your “child” is good or not is relative. We are our own worst critics, and cut deep into our “writer Ego”
4) People think you are strange. Or at least people think some of us are.
5) When you tell some one you just met is informed you are a writer, and they ask “Have you written anything I’ve heard of?”, it ends in awkward silence.
6) Poets will always continue to write, even if the market is not as vast as romantic fiction or sci-fi.
7) We are mentally incoherent the day before scheduled publication, and remain so afterwards.
8) Many of our greatest ideas are ones we scribbled hastily at work, school, or came to us in a scenario where we had no way of writing the idea down and had to continue repeating the idea in our head until we reached a utensil with which to make notes.
9) Every review, good or bad, is taken too personally.
10) Writing is our passion, and we will never stop.
