What It’s Really Like Being a Writer

Hello!! How is everyone doing? I hope you guys are having a fun weekend so far!

Today, I’m posting different relatable moments as a writer! I kind of had the idea when I saw Maggie do the “Relatable Blogger Moments” posts, so it’s going to be kind of like that, but with relatable moments as a writer!

~ Looking up names ~

I feel like I do this all the time! I think I go on those baby naming sites more than parents naming their babies. I always look up things like, what name means (something), girl names that start with g, popular boy names, etc. 🤣 (This is the site I use the most.)

~ Getting a good idea for something in your book once you’re already almost done with it ~

Yup. This has happened to me…and then, I have to decide whether to just use my original idea, or change the whole plot. 😅

~ Staring at a blank page for half an hour ~

The other day, I went on to write, and I could not think of ANYTHING. Literally nothing…

~ Thinking about the characters and plot all the time ~

It’s like I want to write all the time, but then when I actually get to write, I can’t!! Ugh, why can’t this book just write itself! 😄

~ Sitting down to write, but then you end up researching something for a long time ~

I know we’ve all done this. I can’t think of any examples off the top of my head, but I know that I’ve done this before!

~ Looking up synonyms ~

Like…🙂 yeah. I do this All. The. Time. I always feel like I’m using too much of the same words, so I look up synonyms. I also look up words to use instead of “says” a lot!

Thank you for reading! Are you a writer? Have you done any of these? Do you have any more writer moments that you think are relatable? I’d love to chat in the comments!!!!!

See y’all on Wednesday, probably with a crochet pattern, but we’ll have to see! Have a great rest of your weekend! Byeeee!
