What It Means to Be a Writer

As a writer, I find that people often misunderstand what I do with my time.  People think its glamorous, or easy, or leaves me with lots of spare time.  The following image reminded me of that this week.  I thought I would share it with you here.  Surely some of you will understand the truth of this.

Taken from Fantasy and Sci-Fi Rocks My World.

It's all a matter of perspective.  For me, the hardest part of writing comes down to the nitty-gritty details.  Writing on the beach might make those details less frustrating though.


  1. Oh yes, I can completely relate. It fits into my life exactly:) Thanks for sharing this. It's the first time I've seen it!

    And congratulations on the 100 followers. Woo hoo!!

  2. Hahahaha...I love this image!!! I love it because it's kinda true!

  3. Congrats on the 100 followers here's to the next 100.


  4. ROTFL - Yes. That last thing. Absolutely. :-D

    Congrats on all your milestones! (And dig your new picture!)

  5. This was great! It is totally true :P I always love the different reactions when I tell people I'm a writer.

  6. What? We don't all smoke and gaze intensly into the distance while writing?

    There's no way I could write on the beach, I would be too busy watching the waves and the birds to do anything else.
