10 Reactions from non writers after you tell them that you are a writer. #writers 

LOL!!! I’ve had some other interesting responses.

Ooooh we have a writer in town! How exciting! I hope you like it here; maybe you’ll write about our little town! *excited smile turned to dismay almost instantly* Oh… maybe you shouldn’t…

Which immediately made me curious about this small town… trust me whatever the truth is, I’m already imagining far worse in my head.

They’d be better off spilling it now!


1. “Are you trying to be like J.K Rowling?” Yes that’s right, I am writing a book about a school boy wizard who goes to a school for wizards and battles against evil. Sigh!

2. “Ooooh I want to write a novel, I have got the opening sentence in my head already” If only it was that easy…sigh!

3. “Bet you are writing the next ‘Fifty Shades of Grey…..saucy!” (cue a nudge and a wink) A favourite from older males.

4. Blank look and uncomfortable silence. Make mental note never to ask them to read or review your book.

5. “I read a really good book the other night, can’t remember who wrote it, you should read it”. Love this vague response, assumes you both read the same books.

6. “Oh…good for you” pause “nice weather we’re having” – cue point at sky. The classic ‘I am not interested’ distraction…

Kawanee was born in Alexandria Louisiana but her first real memories are of Russellville Arkansas. She's always loved to read, and has always had an vivid imagination. She grew up in a house where almost everyone read, they didn't need a TV although she could still be found planted on her butt in front of her grandma's TV watching cartoons on Saturday mornings. She made up her first story with her mother when her cat died; it was about where pets go when they die. She continued to create stories from bad dreams she had and her dad would help her change nightmares to stories. They would sit up in a chair until the scary went away. He told her that: "Dreams, good or bad, are just stories your mind makes up. You are the author of your dreams; if you don't like them rewrite them. " She was hooked and has continued to read and write stories drawing from dreams, sights and just pure imagination. She just recently decided she'd like to try and get published and fail than wonder what if. Her story continues but where it goes from here is up to you, the Reader... She hopes you'll join her in finding out where her journey goes from here!
