Writer PAIN

Being a writer is hard, who knew?? Well, all writers you know!! check out some of these fun pics this weekend … They’re funny ‘cos they’re true my friends! See you on the other side šŸ˜‰

Recognise this??

So I’ve been writing, writing, writing this week … and it would seem I now have forty billion versions of essentially the same document on my hard drive. And in my Dropbox. And in The Cloud. Plus I’ve emailed it to myself.

Because you JUST CAN’T BE TOO CAREFUL, OKAY! It’s the only way to survive the horrible moments you get that ‘wheel of doom’ when your laptop crashes. Which it will!

… Or this?

I love weekends, evenings, holidays because I get to relax. And by ‘relax’ I mean go on my phone and write stuff on there, instead. What???

How About This?

I have kids, which means I get asked to make food, hear songs or watch ‘jungle dances’ (whatever they are!) every thirty seconds. It’s a miracle I have any focus whatsoever, but then I do have some really great noise-cancelling headphones. Get some!!!

I’m sure you get this …

If you’re a writer this happens to, I’m actually jealous. I’d have to actually go to sleep for this to happen to me!

Or Maybe This …

There is never a good time to write a book, okay. Or a screenplay. In fact, just be an accountant or a hairdresser or a chef.

Oh but wait — I’ve had the greatest idea!

Damn. Too late. Looks like I can’t stop myself even if I wanted to (I want to — waaaaah!).

And definitely this!!!

Don’t you just love it when you’re a writer online and one of THESE asks your advice … Then doesn’t follow it? OMG.

So you no doubt need this …

Give me all the coffee. The End.

So you can do THIS:

Well there have to be some perks of the job when you’re a writer … After all, if you did it for real, you’d go to jail.

Good luck out there!
