Writer confessions

Writer confessions

I’m a writer. And I have some confessions.


  1. I only write at night because I have pervasive insomnia.
  2. I think caffeine is a food group and it gives me pervasive insomnia.
  3. I have a fear of failure.
  4. I also have a fear of success.
  5. Apparently every time I spell ‘Accidentally’ I spell it wrong. Except for this time. That is weird.
  6. When I was a kid I pronounced Chaos… CH-aos because I had only ever read it. Don’t laugh. I also mispronounce Agoraphobic and Taciturn every single time I say them even though I now know how to say them.
  7. I read fantasy fiction purely for escapism. This reality sucks. It needs magic and dragons. And I write for escapism. Just a whole lot of escaping reality in this brain.reality ruin.png
  8. When people ask me what my books are about I totally have no idea what to say. I get nervous. And then ramble incoherently.
  9. I have no idea how to take a compliment. It usually involves trying to brush it off, looking away, and blushing.
  10. I have no desire to be a famous writer. Just a writer.


So do you have any writer confession?
