How to know if you're married to a writer.

I am a writer.

Basically, this means I am insane.

No . . . really.

On any given day ... this is what my sweet Michael is left to deal with.










This too...


Some of this.


A lot of this.


And on the really fun days: this.


I know what you're thinking ... and the answer is no.  But I am presently accepting med. recommendations.

Michael: My demonic inner voices and I love you very, very much  :)

So ... Are you a writer?

While I am not a mother, I imagine my life going a little something like that. When the right man comes along, of course.

It takes a little insanity to be a writer. It takes a matching amount of insanity to be in love with one.

I'm totally there with you Cara!

Hahaha, this is great! I love how you chose pictures to show how you're feeling - they made me grin.

I am, I am! I think I have a handle on my emotions most of the time, but I can get crabby if I've been writing for a while and I'm interrupted. Wait, let me rephrase. I'm interrupted for something silly - like paying bills, doing laundry, fixing lunch. Ironically, if someone drops by just for a little company, that doesn't bother me at all, haha. But I'm sure this is normal writer stuff.

Hmmm... no meds in particular (but I like Patrick's answer, haha). I usually listen to music or watch a movie when I'm feel blue or befuddled. The distraction can help free up your mind, especially from writer's block.

This post made me LOL! :-) Seriously! I love your humor. Oh and love the blog!

Lisa said...

Yep, you're a writer. Two words - Chocolate martini.

Cara R. Olsen said...

Okay . . . That's two of you now suggesting libations to cure my manic moods. I'm calling you Lisa and Patrick when I need a new liver :)

You couldn't have said it better. :) My guy doesn't understand me constantly talking to myself/or my characters...you know what I mean.

And doing the best impressions of the walls around me, aka, not moving, not blinking, but definitely thinking. Wait, I think I just said my walls think... I must be teh crazy.

My poor spouse... & child, for that matter.
