Hey guys! First of all, just wanted to let you know that posts for the next two weeks will come when I fell like writing them, or possibly not at all. I'm on Christmas break and all my siblings are home for the holidays, so I might be too busy beating my family in Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Power Grid to write new blog posts.
I was tagged yesterday by Sarah, over at Dreams and Dragons. I had another post planned for today, but this one just looked like so much fun. To complete this tag, I have to post four to six signs of being a writer, without knowingly copying anyone else, then tag as many other bloggers as I want.
So . . . You know you're a writer when . . .
1. When you take time away from playing (and beating) your family in a board game to critique a friend's short story.
2. When you buy as many school notebooks as possible at the start of the year, even though you know you'll never need that much paper for school this year.
3. When most of your Christmas wish list consists of novels and writing craft books and you insists they all be bought new so the money actually goes to the author. (I kept having to tell my mother I'd rather have 3 new books than 5 used. I'm not sure she believes me.)
4. When you're a little disappointed for Christmas, because it means you didn't finish your novel by your deadline.
5. When you're organizing a Twitter chat for teens everywhere to talk about books. That right, I'm hosting what I hope to be a monthly Twitter chat. I'm calling it the Teen Book Chat and the first chat will take place Monday, January 6th at 8:00 PM eastern time. To join us, just use the hashtag #TBkChat. For more information, I've created a second blog. You an find it by clicking here.
That just about sums it up. Hopefully on Thursday I'll do a Christmas book haul, but I guess we'll see what Santa brings.
For the tag, I'm tagging:
Julia @ Julia the Writer Girl
Hannah @ Candy Apple Books
Jillian @ Covers and Ink
Lily @ Lily's Notes in the Margins
And YOU, if you want to join in.
Merry Christmas. I'd just like to leave you with the reminder that Christ is the reason for CHRISTmas and I don't plan on ever taking him out of the equation. You're welcome to feel differently, but that's how I feel.
Thanks for reading! If you're looking for something to comment, I'd love to know your twitter handle and/or what you're hoping to ger for Christmas in the way of books.
