Relating to writers

Sometimes, writers need something to relate to in our lonely worlds. Here’s a list of relatable writer-ness:

“My imagination is so wild and vivacious that I often find reality to be quite disappointing.” — from an unknown Whisper user


“The one time you actually feel like writing, you have no clue what to write.” — writingproblems #68, Tumblr user

“Writers see the world differently. Every voice we hear, every face we see, every hand we touch could become story fabric.” — Buffy Andrews

“You know you’re a writer when…your mood depends on what’s going on in your story” — yummies38, Tumblr user

“I have this novel idea in my head and instead of actually writing it, I play it out in my head like a movie. It helps me escape my stress.” — from an unknown Whisper user

“Because my characters are all lost, homeless, trapped in my mind. They’ve helped me through so much, it would be cruel not to give them a place to live.” — why I write #212, Tumblr user


Writing in my brain: Beautiful flowing sentences full of powerful phrases and enigmatically witty dialogue.
Writing on the page: They did the thing and said some stuff. There was snark. — from an unknown Tumblr user

I write as if I had ink in my veins. — Maya Ahmed
