You create a character that’s just so perfect you want to be like her (or am I the only person this has happened to? lol)

You watch a TV show or movie and think you could have written the ending or different parts of it so much better

When you’re bored you people watch and imagine the lives of the people around you

Some days you just want to write and daydream. All day.

Add your own!

You never get bored with your daydreams

You have multiple voices in your head, and they argue.

You model characters after the people around you. Myself included, (Actually myself mostly. xD)

You tell yourself stories all the time

You know just how your characters are supposed to act, and that makes you the best actor to play them.

Sometimes you close your eyes so that you can imagine out a scene more clearly.

You take mental notes of things you hear and see for your books.

You have a playlist of songs dedicated to each of your protagonists (I call them portags lol)

You spend hours on blogs and Tumblrs with writing tips

You can’t stand reading most stories on fanfiction.net or wattpad. (Some of those are super crappy, am I right?)

You plan your story to go one way, but your characters take over and practically destroy the plot

Procrastination is your best friend

You have to explain to your mother why you are googling battle axe fighting strategies.

You practically destroy your desk drawers looking for a specific notebook to find a specific scene you wrote eight months ago.

You have baby names websites bookmarked.

You spend half an hour working before loudly exclaiming “AW MAN I FORGOT ABOUT THE TEA I HAD STEEPING”

You catch yourself narrating your life.

GypsyStorm~I never, ever get bored with daydreams lol!

Jazzspell~Fanfiction… –__– yes most of it, well, horrible. Its like “Stop destroying my favorite stories/movies!”

EmeraRider~I do the thing with my tea all. the. time. And I have to stop myself from narrating my life or I won’t pay close enough attention to the present 😛

When you write a persuasive essay for your English class, you get a low grade because “you write like you’re telling a story.”

In order to fall asleep, you make up scenarios in your head about your characters.

December 28, 2014 at 22:00


Oh, and you get really upset when some calls you a nerd for writing, cause it’s pretty much the coolest thing ever.

You clean out your writing folder, then suddenly remember that you had plans for one of the stories you threw out and you just kinda scream.

December 29, 2014 at 16:37


You never get bored on airplanes or car trips because you can imagine story lines for your characters for hours.

You’re in your room in the middle of the day and close your eyes to imagine a scenario more clearly and you hope no one comes in and thinks you’re really lazy because it looks like your sleeping

You write the beginning of your book like 5 trillion times until you get it right

Babynames.com is your best friend for naming characters

You spend way too much money on journals and notebooks

You have trouble every once in a while getting yourself to start writing, but once you start you can’t stop

December 29, 2014 at 17:07


@Gypsystorm I agree with #3 I do that a lot, and #5.
When you have trouble writing an essay or paper for school because you have to make it real (with no epic battle scene). Please don’t tell me I’m the only one!!!

When it’s writers who make you cry in history–learning about John Donne’s exile, Oscar Wilde’s fall, Alfred Douglas’s wretched father, Shakespeare’s wonderful triumph–are so fascinating and the grandest thing in the world is to join them.
When you hear a few words spoken b a friend or stranger and it just wakes up a whole story or character inside you
When you actually hate writing half the time because it’shard and you’re worried you’ll suck at it, but it’s the only thing you know and love.
When you relax with reading or writing because it makes you feel like this is how your brain is SUPPOSED to feel

When you never show people your writings, but you want to make sure to break all of their nonexistent hearts.

Yes, I am guilty of many a tragic ending.

December 30, 2014 at 19:22


When you read a story and either think “I could’ve written that better!” or “god, I’m such a failure- I’ll never write that well!”

December 30, 2014 at 19:23


*Understatement– tragic endings are my best friends*

When you start to like a guy and you start imagining all the things you could do together. And you start writing them into stories. (I’m so guilty of this omg)

When you write songs about your life.

When you can come up with the perfect ending to a story you haven’t written yet.

When you have a certain part you imagined in a story, but you have no idea what to build around it.

When you have to title your documents random boring names so your parents don’t click on them when they get into Open Office.

When you sign up for Creative Writing class (I am taking that in the third trimester of this school year and I’m so excited)

When you’re just going about your life and you suddenly get really inspired and you start making that spark of passion into impromptu poetry in your Spanish notebook.

I could go on and on 🙂

I’m so jealous! At my school only juniors and seniors can take creative writing, and I’m a freshman… Wait. Your school is on trimesters too? Omigosh!
Anyways, I’m starting classes at the college this fall, so hopefully I can take the first 2 English classes, then take creative there- our creative writing teacher is awful.
