Ten Things Not To Say To a Writer

Sharing the best of the Twitter Hashtag

 

 

And the one we’ve all heard before:

 

C.S. Wilde writes about fantastical worlds, love stories larger than life and epic battles. She also, quite obviously, sucks at writing an author bio. She finds it awkward that she must write this in the third person, and hopes you wonโ€™t notice.

    I’m afraid Beau’s comment was the one that made me laugh loudest and longest. Now I’m a bit worried about what that says about me.

  2. I am in awe of all people who write. I have difficulty writing 500 word or less posts for my blog. I cant imagine the sheer amount of work it must be to fill a whole novel with words.

    Have you ever talked about your writing dreams with super practical people? I have! And they’re always eager to help me thinking up better career choices, because no one can support themselves writing anyway!

    Yeah…

  7. Fabulous list – thanks for sharing. My most common reaction (and the one that rankles the most) – nothing – complete blank and change of subject. It seems most people either don’t want to know that I’m a writer, or don’t know what to say. Oh well ๐Ÿ™‚
