So in celebration of my love of writing, over generalizations, and gifs, here is a list of 3 kinds of writers you'll find! I'm sure a bunch of you are saying "But Katie, there's more than three kinds!" And to that I say: I know.
I don't know why I picked the number, it was entirely random. And now.....
THE THREE TYPES OF WRITERS
#1 The Trendy Coffee Shop Writer
We all know her (or him). They're the ones with their laptop open inside your local Starbucks/mom-and-pop coffee shop. They look artsy with their colorful hair (or if they're guys, their beards or slightly tortured soul look), good fashion taste, and black framed glasses. Yeah. And they're not prescription either. It just adds to the fact that they're an edgy writer on the verge of making it. They've also probably only got one cup of coffee near them. They can't afford more...unless you buy it for them of course. Poor things.
|It's like being a hipster, only worse. Because they're no wearing it ironically.|
|Is it just me, or do male writers always look like they stepped out of the 1940's?|
You, on the other hand, forgot to do laundry, so you put on whatever you could find on the floor that smelled mostly clean. Or you're wearing Ode D' Coffee because this happened to you this morning:
#2 The Writer With a Deadline
This writer is easy to spot. They haven't changed clothes in three days but they need food. So they go to the grocery store 'really quickly' only to realize that they have to make choices. Dammit, they just took a break because they can't decide if their character will survive a deadly fall or not and their editor told them this is absolutely the last extension they get. THEY DON'T HAVE TIME TO PICK OUT WHAT KIND OF SOUP THEY WANT! ARRRG! You'll see them muttering to themselves and meandering the isle with a slightly wild or dazed look on their face. Possibly they've already opened food from sheer desperation.
#3 The Procrastinating Writer
This writer is especially prevalent in the land of Writing. You'll know this writer because they'll be doing everything but writing. For example, this:
|Composing the next chart topper is more important than a novel!|
|Just getting new ideas, I swear!|
Or my personal (and most used) favorite:
I know there are a million other kind of writers out there, so what kind of writer are you? Leave a comment below of what kind of writers you've observed! What kind are you? This Procrastinating Writer wants to know!!
BONUS!! WHAT AN AUTHOR WHO 'MADE IT' LOOKS LIKE:
|Note the nice clothing, the fancy cafe (probably somewhere in Paris for 'research') and the slightly smug salute.|
