You might be a writer if:
1) You stay up very late or get up very early to work.
2) You score 80% or higher on the introvert scale on a Myers Brigg personality test.
3) You make extensive use of a dictionary and thesaurus even though you’re done with school.
4) You have a habit of collecting pretty paper, notecards, pens, and other writing related things.
5) You know what Scrivener is.
6) Your daily vocabulary consists of words like plot, character, setting, and word count.
7) You think the printing press is the greatest thing ever invented.
8) You think a library should be part of the building code for constructing new houses.
9) You own a cat and have a habit of talking to it (even though the cat ignores you).
10) You have a habit of observing people and taking mental notes about their quirks, dress, etc. while out in public so you can reference them later while writing. [Not in a rude manner just to reassure you.]
11) You have constant dialogues going on in your head.
12) You find yourself during a conversation or incident in daily life suddenly thinking, “Hey! This is just like the scene from x book!”
And to finish off, two humorous quotes from other writers.
I only write when inspiration strikes. Fortunately it strikes at nine every morning.
You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood. What mood is that? Last-minute panic.
[Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes]
