A few weeks ago, I listed 10 Things I Loved About Being A Writer and as I was creating the list, I knew eventually, I’d have to do this one too.
Enjoy, and lend a few of your own if you have some to share.
1. My Internet searches of ‘explosive assembly’, ‘how to hide post-mortem forensic evidence’, and ‘biological hazards’ have tagged me on National Home Security’s watch list.
2. When my muse begins envisioning the next great story, it is often at the most inappropriate occasions, in which others around me may interpret my aloof presence as bored arrogance or deficient cognitive functioning.
3. My grammar mistakes are more publicly broadcast than the first Roswell UFO sighting.
4. Group insurance policy, 401K, paid vacation—sick days…right.
5. Since writing requires genuine authenticity from the writer…I have been: shot; betrayed; ripped off; backstabbed; suspected of murder, murdered; chased; and lost in the woods for days—with no compensation.
6. I am suspicious of every black, stuffed, plastic garbage bag lying on the side of the road.
7. I would be poor if I didn’t lead a double life.
8. Wait, I don’t have a life.
9. My coworkers (you) could be total weirdoes, who upon meeting, I might actually turn and flee for my life, but the comforts of blogging have hidden these important details from me.
10. I think it is the garbage man who is blackmailing me.
