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.
