Top Ten Tuesday - Things You Should NEVER Say to a Writer

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Hi.  My name is Ciera.  And I'm a writer.

As soon as those words come out of my mouth, I can usually expect the typical responses.  So if you're a budding writer, I'm sure you've heard at least one of these things that should never be said to an aspiring writer.

Ten things you should NEVER say to a young writer:

1. Writing is easy.

2. Wait...I'm confused.

3. That's not original.

4. You should get a real job.

5. Maybe you should just start a blog instead.

6. Won't you ever be finished?

7. Can I read it?

8. Hasn't that been done before?

9. You'll never make it.

10. I hate books.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Happy Top 10 Tuesday, everyone!!
