Why you should date a writer…

1. They have very active imaginations. imagination

2. They won’t bother you during your football/baseball/soccer game. (cuz they’re writing)

3. They won’t notice if you’ve taken out the trash. (cuz they’re writing)

4. They’re easily distracted. For example:

  • Writer: Honey, have you taken out the trash?
  • Honey: Check this out; it would make a great detail for your story.

5. They’re always up for a new adventure.maxresdefault

  • Honey: Want to go snowboarding?
  • Writer: Uhm.
  • Honey: It would be a great backstory for one of your characters.
  • Writer: YES!
