Writers Are Weird

At least that's what non-writers think. In chatting with my F.A.I.T.H. sister, Lindi, we noted that non-writers just don't get us. They don't get the fact that our characters are real. Then we decided that's the great thing about writer's conferences--the chance to be surrounded by people who get you.

I can't tell you how many times I've sat at the dinner table lamenting or rejoicing over something my characters did that day. But I know I'm not the only one. A friend of mine tells how her husband looked up at her at dinner one night while she was going on about something in her story and said, "Writers are just weird."

Well, maybe we are, but where would the world be without us? Without our creative imaginations there would be no books, no movies, no songs. What would life be like then? B-O-R-I-N-G!

So take heart dear writers, and prepare for the next time we gather. Our words are a gift from God. Get out there and use your gift!


  1. Happy Birthday! Love You, Amy

  2. Writer's are weird? Hey, I resemble that!

  3. LOL, Mindy! Yes, you're right. We have our own little world going on in our heads. :)

    Happy birthday!!! How'd you get stuck working on your b-day?


  4. Diane, I'm afraid we ALL resemble that!

    Missy, you know the task master 'round here. Birthdays, holidays . . . nothing stops a post. Well, except maybe life :-)

  5. Mindy,
    You are so right on. And Edward Cullen does exist!!

  6. After watching Hans Christian Anderson's life story with my daughter, I had to point out the fact that her mom's not THAT weird. I could be worse.
