You know what I've been hearing? Apparently, being a Writer, I am supposed both be a people person and understand people.
Woo! Is that off! Me? Understand people? Hahaha! I don't even know why I do things, forget anyone else!
Well, as a Writer, one knows their characters, gets in their heads. To do that, one must know people well.
Yeah. Okay. I wish. I can't get my characters to shut up and I have no clue why certain ones (Luna!) are so whiny and romantic. Yeah. I know my characters.
And, out of order of course, I am supposed to be a people person.
Ha. Haha. When it comes to guys, half the time I want to throw them down a well and then ask a bird to attack their head (have you ever had that happen to you? It is a weird experience...). Forget the rest of the female population. Outside of most of my friends, I want to lock them up and teach them how to... well, uh... just lock them up. I don't care how nice your butt is. Cover it! Grr...
Oh, yes, total people person. That's me all right.
Which brings me back to knowing people. If I "knew people", would I be as confused by them as I am half the time?
(I prefer being able to at least punish my uncontrollable, un-understandable characters.)
So, I'd just like to say...
Writers have no special powers! Well, besides going to alternate realities without other people. Which, is amazing!!
