27 Thoughts All Writers Have

This will be a fantastic story.

No one is going to read this.

I have no idea what's going on.

Perfection is impossible, failing is inevitable.

Now this, this is a genius idea.

Has anyone come up with this before?

The movie soundtrack to this scene would be amazing.

I wonder what it's like to feel that?

I'm grossly unqualified to write about life.

These characters are committing mutiny.

I need to have a backup plan if I get rejected again.


I wish more of my friends understood what it's like to be a writer.

It feels so good to have aching fingers from typing.

I will only use Pinterest for inspiration. I will not, in any way, get distracted.

Oo, chocolate cake.

Writing is harder than I thought.

I feel like this is taking too long.

These two characters: I ship them.

Why is one of my minor characters my favorite to write?

Am I the only person who will enjoy this story?

Maybe it's not actually worth it to finish?

I should move on and find a new hobby.


This story has to be written, and I am the one to write it.

Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot.
