Weekend Assignment: You Might Be a Writer If…

You’ve probably heard of Jeff Foxworthy of redneck joke fame. All his redneck jokes begin with the same phrase: You might be a redneck if followed by a witty observation: … you think the last words to the Star Spangled Banner are “gentlemen, start your engines!”

The topic of this week’s weekend assignment is (drum roll please)

You Might Be a Writer If…

… you’ve renamed your rock band three times this week, and you don’t play an instrument.

… you’ve ever lost your cell phone while using it as a bookmark.

… you let your child lock you in the trunk of a car in the name of research. (Yes, I did. And it seemed perfectly normal at the time.)

… you get the idea.

Some thoughts to get you going:

How do you celebrate an acceptance?

What do you do when you get a rejection?

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve researched?

Writing pet peeves?

What do you think makes a writer a writer?

This weekend, tickle your own funny bone and write as many or as few of these one-liners as you like.
