How To Survive A Relationship With A Writer

Some good tips to keep in mind 😉

Jack Ronald Cotner

I discovered this list of top ten tips on how to survive a relationship with a writer over at www.writerswrite.co.za

Numbers 4, 5, and 10 are definitely sage advice.

Top Ten Tips

1. Never ever ask when the book will be published.

2. Do not ask a writer if they wished they’d written the latest best seller.

3. Never say you’re writing a book. Never ever say you’d also write a book if you only had the time.

4. Don’t call the police if you happen to see a writer’s browsing history. The average writer is not planning to poison you, hire a hit man, or move to Afghanistan. It’s simply research.

5. Leave the writer alone when the writer is actually writing. You have no idea how difficult it is to enter the zone.

6. Don’t pick unfair fights with a writer. Writers do get their revenge in print.

30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath)

via 30 traits of an Empath (How to know if you’re an Empath) | The Mind Unleashed.

This is an interesting article that I looked up at my mother’s request the other day. A lady at her church had mentioned being an empath to her and told her a little about it. My mother found it interesting, and similar to things she’s experienced, so she mentioned it to me and her belief that she might be an empath, and had me look it up.

As I was reading through the list of traits, she nodded her head and commented her agreement on just about each trait. I found myself agreeing with most of the traits, as well (at least half to 2/3 of them), such as: being a good listener; not much of a crowd person; a need for solitude; people coming to me with their problems; seeming shy and aloof; being creative and easily bored; daydreaming; loving nature and animals; liking adventure and travel; always looking for answers and the truth; having a hard time doing things I don’t enjoy; feeling the emotions of others and taking them on as my own; an interest in the metaphysical and supernatural. There are other traits I somewhat related to, also. And I also noticed that some of the traits seemed to echo traits of an introvert. So now I wonder how much of my introverted nature might also be me being empathic.
