    ‘You know you’re a writer when you have pages and pages of sentences and ideas for stories that you will write someday.’

    YES.

    Normal people have no idea…

    You know you’re a writer when you go back to read a book you loved when you were younger and are bitterly disappointed because the story you remembered is ‘ruined’ by bad writing.

    @The Happy Bookaholic It’s good to have someone to correct our grammar since we are writers after all. Keep it up. I’d just ask you to try to avoid the all caps. Your points are just as pertinent without them.

    My sibs don’t do that yet. But they play games and were playing multiple games of acting out my stories. Which was totally adorable.

    You know you’re a writer when you have to break up a fight between your siblings of who’s going to play the favorite character. 😛

    You know you’re a writer when you can’t text without using proper grammar.

    Thanks 🙂 but here is what dictionary.com says. (By the way this wasn’t purposeful)

    Although it is frequently claimed that different should be followed only by from, not by than, in actual usage both words occur and have for at least 300 years. From is more common today in introducing a phrase, but than is also used

    Your first reaction when you are alone in an idling truck on top of a slick, icy hill and the truck begins to slide—before the initial terror set in—is ‘Cool. So this is what it feels like, going into danger.’

    You know you’re a writer.
