    You know you’re a writer when you read a book and think, “If only I had gotten to that idea first!”
    You know you’re a writer when you watch a movie and think, “Why didn’t they write a book instead of a movie for that?

    You know you’re a writer when you walk past someone and wonder what dark secrets they hide. And before you know it you’ve come up with a new character for your WIP.

    This doesn’t have to do with being a writer, but the problems I have as a writer when I have a writer fail moment.
    ME: What color hair does this character have?
    SIBLING: I don’t know. Depending on the scene, it varies from black to blonde.

    XD I’ve never had a character who can change hair color from scene to scene.

    If your characters knew what kind of trouble you were planning for them, they would move to someone else’s WIP and be a flat, unimportant villager with no purpose whatsoever.

    You know you’re a writer when your mom says, “Look! I’ve found a notebook of stuff you wrote years ago!” and you wonder if you can possibly hide/incinerate it fast enough so that no one reads it.

    You know you’re a writer when no one wants to even be a random person in your book because you will pull them into the mayhem you have made. Even though you just described them or had them say a few unimportant lines like, ‘Can I please see your card?”.
    *wonders if said character will get his own book…* Probably not. Poor Harvey.
    You know you’re a writer when if your dimension traveling character knew more of her past she would dimension travel to your dimension to make her stop running around figuring for her past. And you would have to draw a chart… So you block your dimension. Take that! Ha! Now that villian that is like Moriarty can’t get in here.

    You know you’re a writer when you can’t watch a movie without going: “Hey that looks like ____{fill in the blank}”

    @daughteroftheking Oh, c’mon, it can’t be that bad… XD I was just looking through a fantasy novel I wrote when I was 8, and one line was, “We don’t want to go there looking like we been fighting with a baby squirrel!” XD
    @catwing The Kingdom thanks thee for protecting us from thy devious villain. *bows* *bestows some sort of fitting honor upon you*
    @dragon-snapper YES. So glad I’m not the only who does that. (also, in real life too… which can be really weird, because then you want to stare at them and study them, but you have enough self-consciousness left to realize that’s rude, so you’re unsure what to do… πŸ˜› )
    You know you’re a writer if you type “wiki” into your search engine, and the first options it lists are the wikipedia pages for “Bothrops Atrox” “Cholera” and “Emperor Scorpion.”
    My poor characters. XD

    You know you’re a writer when you were SO READY to finally finish your WIP…only to feel a bit lost now that you don’t have a big project to work on anymore.

    Your character has a broken arm, so you walk around with your arm wrapped in a 20 foot bandage to see what a cast feels like.

    One of your characters is blind, so you spend a day blindfolded.

    You know you’re a writer when you spend lots of money on “writing” music. Also when you scour YouTube for that perfect character song…

    @corissa-maiden-of-praise I always look like I’ve been fighting with a baby squirrel. It’s a fashion statement. Yeah, some of it isn’t as bad as I expect. You know, like the epic saga (complete with illustrations!!) of a man and his cat who were being chased by a land-dwelling shark, and were saved from being trapped in ice (not by the shark, ironically) by a sentient boat. Or the story of the blue cat who was actually green. (Don’t try to make sense of it. Just don’t.)
