    My family does that all the time. “What you do to yourself?”
    “I got in a fight with a bear.”

    Once, I sprained my finger, and my brother and I made an elaborate story to tell my friends that involved portals, Narnia, and Aslan biting my finger. Then we realized that if the thing that represented God bit my finger, it would probably do more then just get sprained.

    You know you’re a writer when you misspell your villain’s name and start to worry.

    You know you’re a writer when:

    You let your siblings kidnap you so you know what it feels like (and also so you can become an actual escape artist, which I now am)

    You say something from one of your stories, someone asks what that means, and you start explaining your whole book, with all of the backstory and everything. And then they have this confused look on their face, and you say, “Oh no! Did I do it AGAIN!?”

    You listen to the soundtrack of a movie and think, “Why is my book not a movie because that music is PERFECT for it!”

    You’ve never really screamed before, and you desperately want to see if you can but you don’t want to freak out your mom.

    You are crying over your first killed-off character, and your sister says, “He’s not real!! Why are you crying, ya dingus?!”

    Your catchphrase is, “I’m not crazy. My reality is just different from yours.”

    The bane of your existence is screen-time limits, because “writing should not count as computer time!”

    (Also every single post on this topic applies to me, and I love it!!!!!)

    @aislinn-mollisong Nice! Most of those that you listed apply to me. Especially the last one. I mean, school doesn’t! ๐Ÿ˜›

    Also:

    You know you’re a writer when fainting, evil laughs, and dramatic death scenes are prized skills among your little sisters and brother.

    The bane of your existence is screen-time limits, because โ€œwriting should not count as computer time”!

    *waves hand in air* MEEEEE!!!!!!

    Here’s some more:
    You know you’re a writer when you’re listening in on other people’s conversations and trying to remember everything they say.

    You know you’re a writer when no one wants to watch a movie with you because all you’re doing is analyzing the characters’ motives and predicting the endings.

    You know you’re a writer when you have a thesaurus tab constantly open in your browser.

    You know you’re a writer when you don’t want to meet your characters because you know they’ll be mad because of all the pain you’ve inflicted upon them.

    You know you are a writer when you have a very interesting search history. A few things I’ve looked up recently are:

    Phases of the Moon
    Asian Desserts
    Flowers that Grow in Japan
    How long can a fruit tree last in a drought
    How long it takes for a Japanese plum tree to grow
    How long can plants grow without water
    How long does it take to feel the effects of a drought

    Though I know others have much more random things than mine. ๐Ÿ™‚ It all depends on what questions pop into your brain as you’re creatively writing along… ๐Ÿ˜€

    @ingridrd Yes! Every time!
    You know you’re a writer when you realized you closed a document without saving it, and your life flashes before our eyes.
    You know you’re a writer when you say to yourself, “I’ll only write for a little while. Then I’ll go to bed.” And then you laugh at yourself, becouse you know you’ll be up till 1:00 AM.

    You know you’re a writer when you have a vocabulary bigger than Eugene Meltsner’s.

    You know you are a writer when dreams give you story ideas.

    @aislinn-mollisong Yes! ๐Ÿ˜€ My brother and I have played it up to where you have to start to pay, but we haven’t gotten around to purchasing the rest yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @princessfoo I can relate to that one so much! ๐Ÿ˜€
