I'm a bit obsessed with Newsies. I've seen it twice and you can bet I plan on seeing it again.
Newsie. Revolutionary. Mutant and proud. Redhead. Theatre/musical/Broadway geek. Singer. Writer. Also, I'm Jewish, and if you have a problem with that then you can just leave this page right now. Because if you don't like me the way I am, then you don't deserve to be friends with me.
You know you're a writer when...
1) You carry a notebook and pen wherever you go, even though you might never use it.
2) During math, you have a relentless desire to doddle a poem or figure out an entire story on your graph paper.
3) The doctor tells you that you have a terminal illness and you think, "I can use this."
4) You can remember the name of your characters, their personality, their quirks, the colour of their favourite jacket...but not where you had last put your glasses.
5) You believe in living with intention.
6) The book is *always* better than the movie. (Excluding Alice In Wonderland)
7) You have an impulse to lie and create a story whenever relating an incident to someone such as, instead of telling your friend that you saw your ex at the mall, you would simply say that you met said ex and he so wanted you back.
8) You spend an afternoon writing and rewriting a breakup note in which you say nothing about your feelings but come up with some dazzling wordplay. By the end, you can't remember why you were so mad. You send the note anyway, because who wants to waste all those great lines?
9) You think that the people in your head are much more interesting then real people.
10) If (God forbid) you're not writing, you do something crazy, such as invest in Uranium or weave a room-size tapestry.
11) You not only fall in love with a fictional character, but one you create even though you know all his flaws as you created them.
12) You talk to yourself whenever and wherever you are, even though you know you're within earshot of complete strangers.
13) You talk to yourself asking why the hell do you talk to yourself (Why do I talk to myself?)
14) You take coffee as water.
15) You laugh out loud while reading 'Twilight' (The book is a mockery of all well-written prose thus far in the universe.)
16) You read out loud to your dog
17) You'll never forgive your parents for your happy childhood.
18) You find the setting all around you as a perfect world for your characters
19) You get cranky if you don't get to write.
20) You have constant bags under your eyes, your purse is stuffed with at least five pens and random pieces of paper napkins on which you’ve made notes for the next chapter of your novel, you are constantly on a caffeine high, you never back up your material, you wake up nightly with cold sweats from a free-floating anxiety wondering if anyone is going to buy your book. The only thought that keeps you relatively sane is: if all else fails, you can always run away, never to be heard from again.
