You Know You're an Author If:
You talk to yourself a lot. (e.g. Hmm, what would happen if it was sunny the day Bella got hit by the van? Oh, story idea!! Must get computer!)
You talk to yourself about talking to yourself. (e.g. 'Why do I constantly ask my self random things?')
When you talk to yourself you often talk to yourself like you're talking to someone else. (e.g. 'Have you ever noticed that deliver could mean take out someone's liver?')
After uttering a profound piece of wisdom like that above, you stare at the cookie in your hand with awe and say, "Wow,this stuff is great for sugar highs...'
You live off of sugar and caffeine.
You've ever stuck a big word into a sentance after a dumb word (e.g. 'College is so, like, totally daunting')
Your vacation is ruined because you forgot your laptop at home and just discovered an amazing plot for a story.
You'll check your e-mail every day of the week and then disappear off the face of the earth.
You're e-mails tend to be pages long and incredibly random.
When replying to an e-mail, you'll never actually address the point of it.
You tend to collect Bic Stics off the ground like picking pennies off the ground.
No matter where you are in a room you never have to get up to find a pen/pencil and paper.
The letters on your keyboard are wearing off.
Your friends and family think that you have carpal tunnel syndrome.
People think you have A.D.D.
You think it'd be cool to have A.D.D.
You correct spelling problems and various mistakes on the worksheets your teachers pass out.
You want to type one thing to someone, but then end up writing a novel.
That short story your english teacher assigned you to write came out as a 30-page story compared to the 5-page tales everyone else did.
You constantly start talking in third person, present or past tense. (All the time. You don't even know!)
You start thinking about making lists like this and start giggling for no "apparent" reason
Your friends stopped looking at you funny for no apparent reason a loooooong time ago.
And FINALLY, the one way to tell if you're a good writer: You failed English 101. (Actually this does not apply but w.e.)
(copy that into you're profile if you fit one or more of the descriptions)
Its official now. I cant live without this site. Just to many awesome stories here.

Of all the diversions of life, there is none so proper to fill up its empty spaces as the reading of useful and entertaining authors. Joseph Addison
He had read much, if one considers his long life; but his contemplation was much more than his reading. He was won't to say that if he had read as much as other men he should have known no more than other men. John Aubrey
Books are men of higher stature; the only men that speak aloud for future times to hear. E.S. Barrett
He that loves a book will never want a faithful friend, a wholesome counselor, a cheerful companion, an effectual comforter. By study, by reading, by thinking, one may innocently divert and pleasantly entertain himself, as in all weathers, as in all fortunes. Barrow
Books are not men and yet they stay alive. Stephen Vincent Benet
Books are masters who instruct us without rods or ferules, without words or anger, without bread or money. If you approach them, they are not asleep; if you seek them, they do not hide; if you blunder, they do not scold; if you are ignorant, they do not laugh at you. Richard De Bury
Books are standing counselors and preachers, always at hand, and always disinterested; having this advantage over oral instructors, that they are ready to repeat their lesson as often as we please. Oswald Chambers
A room without books is like a body without a soul. Marcus T. Cicero
The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man nothing else that he builds ever lasts monuments fall; nations perish; civilization grow old and die out; new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on. Still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts, of the hearts of men centuries dead. Clarence Day
