Author has written 7 stories for NCIS, Twilight, Harry Potter, Left Behind, and That '70s Show.
I write stories...
Signs you might be afflicted with the condition known as WRITER.
1. You would rather talk to the voices in your head than the person sitting next to you. (I don't want to admit it, but yes...)
2. Some of the letters on your keyboard are completely worn off. (My computer is still new, but the D key, is begining to feel a little worn.)
3. You would rather write than go out. (Depends on where I am going.
4. Your/you're and their/there/they're are errors that send you into an apoplectic fit. (OH MY GOSH YES)
5. You get cranky if you don't get to write. (hehehehehehe, well, My family does know when I haven't written...They hide.)
6. You've ever said,"The voices are getting louder; I must go write." (Very often)
7. When talking to others, you mentally edit their dialogue and compose tags and beats. (I base characters after people I know, so yes...it annoys a lot of people.)
8. You've heard/seen something, and thought, I need to write that down. (I never leave the house without my pen and paper.)
9. You've ever written a scene, synopsis, outline, or character sketch on a restaurant napkin.. (Well, yes...)
10. You wake up in the middle of the night and scrabble for a pen and paper you keep next to your bed to write down a scene to make the voices be quiet so you can get some sleep. (My Room is so full of notebooks, filled with ideas, my parents think I might be a horder.
11. You end an argument by saying,"Oh,wait, I have to write this down-this is the perfect conflict for my characters! Now, repeat what you just yelled." (I thought that, never said.)
12. Getting the scene finished is more important than coffee, the bathroom, or food. (Only came close to starving myself twice)
13. You have a momentary reality lapse and mention your characters' situation as a prayer in Sunday school. (never thought of that, but I have asked God for inspiration before.
14. A blank wall becomes the screen where the scene you're writing takes place right in front of your eyes. (Heehehehe, maybe)
15. The easiest way for you to deal with conflict is to go home and write it in your story. (Once again...I LIVE TO WRITE!)
16. You purposely eavesdrop in public. (yeah...)
17. At parties, your method of making conversation is to discover people in the room with interesting occupations (preferably your hero or heroine's)so you can conduct research: (Well, I base characters after people I know. SO DUH!)
18. You listen to the writer's commentary on every DVD so that you can analyze his/her writing process. (Hehehehe, J.K. Rowling probably considers me a stalker.)
19. You have a favorite line from every movie you've seen. (Yeah...why wouldn't I?)
20. You can't write because you're mad at one of your characters. (Yes...I hate them, well the bad guys anyway...)
21. You argue with said character. (Yep)
22. You drive three hours to a city where you don't know anyone, spend another three hours driving around the city, then drive three hours home and decide NOT to set your story there. (I can't drive, I look places up on google instead)
23. You have a folder on your computer labeled "Ideas." Some of the files within this folder have only one or two words or sentences and you wonder why they made sense to you months ago. (I do, but mainly on actual paper.)
24. You start to laugh out loud in public at what something your character might say. (:-))
25. At school, you secretly look forward to writing English papers. (I'm Homeschooled, so my writing is my English Paper)
26. When you talk to someone, you constantly correct their bad grammar. (Yep)
27. Even though you try your hardest to resist, you often correct your own grammar on IM. (And FB too.)
28. You talk to yourself constantly. (Under my breath and no one can hear me...I hope.)
29. You talk to yourself about talking to yourself too much. (Yup)
30. Your family/friends have come to the ignore the habit of your talking to yourself. (I think)
31. You've apologized out loud to a character after doing something horrible to them. (I cry if I kill them. I scream "I am sorry." For anything else unpleasant.)
