5 Signs You May Be A Writer – And 3 That You’re Not

5 Signs You May Be A Writer – And 3 That You’re Not

Writers have certain habits. Not all, but most of us do. Compared to our friends and family, we do things that others may look at and roll their eyes. What are some of your habits? Are there things that you find yourself doing that your non-writing friends don’t? I came across this great little article by Chantelle Atkins, author of several novels.

Published by: Kawanee Hamilton

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!

  1. I hide in toilets and closets at gatherings to scribble in a pad a titbit or two. I have been caught with my hand up my gown at a dinner dance… black tie, trying to reach my pad and pencil secreted in the leg of my knicks. *gasp* I sit and watch but mostly I listen… *whispers* nobody is safe. 😇
