~You think in third person.
~Your homepages are YWPNaNoWriMo, Write or Die, Yahoo, and WordPress.
~You’ve ever uttered the sentence, “Yeah, yesterday I got the band colors on my braces changed in preparation for the book signing on Sunday!!”
This is probably the most nerdy sentence in the human language. Seriously, if you can think of a nerdier one, let me know.
~Your Reading teacher tells you to stop reading and your Writing teacher tells you to stop writing. Huh?
~You’ve come up with novel ideas from watching PBS, in science class, dreams, commercials, and Reader’s Digest. And from songs, RPs, Stargate episodes, other books, even your Geometry textbook.
~Your parents have had to physically lead you out of a resturant after you had three full glasses of chocolate milk and started to cackle a little. (Read: a LOT.)
~You spend more time writing novels in class than actually paying attention.
~Your best friends (most of them) are either equine or fictional. You have a limited number of real, human friends. And that number is dwindling.
~You’d rather read/write a book than go to the mall. Unless you need inspiration for some characters, then you go just to observe people. Sit on a bench with your notebook while the rest of your friends/family/whoever the llama you’re with go and shop.
~You’re planning on asking your writing teacher if you can go in at lunch every day in November to write. Really hoping he says yes to this. Might even make 50k this year if he does.
~You enjoy looking like a stereotypical nerd. This is a time of your life you’ll reminescence about later, as in, “Look at these old yearbook photos! Maaaan, I was such a geek! But the writing paid off, and now I’m this totally bestselling Newberry-award-winning novelist with a gazillion horses and an awesome husband and I’m getting PAID to be a nerd.”
Or at least that’s what you HOPE you’ll sound like.
~You’ve ever asked someone if they mind if this scenario you’re in is put in your novel. For, y’know, copyright reasons or something.
~ You think guys who novel are hot 😉
~ YOU LOVE LLAMAS.
~You have a strange obsession with death, doom, destruction, and Gothic architecture. And a weird sense of twisted humor; you’re normally a very happy-go-lucky person, but sometimes this violent streak will just sweep through you.
~You’ve ever uttered the sentence: “Ohh, sorry, didn’t mean to say that, it’s something my protagonist would say…. He’s kind of a bad influence on me…. I apologize, and so does Alex. He won’t use that language outside the novel anymore.”
And recieved the standard looks from this statement.
~You can sniff out bad screenplay writing in a movie from about seven miles away.
~Your writing teacher refers to your judgement in some matters of grammar and sentence fluency.
As in, when there’s a debate in Language Arts class between him and a student about some form of grammar, they both turn to you at the same time to ask who’s right.
~You’re not really supposed to be on this week, ’cause you promised you wouldn’t be, but you didn’t want to disappoint the pesants 😉
Just kidding. I just really needed to blog. Peace In.
