You know you're a writer when...
1. Someone puts your book up for sale on eBay.
Through Google Alerts, I was notified that my name had appeared on eBay. Someone was selling my debut release at auction. The ink is hardly dry yet, and already at least two sellers have put it up on an internet auction site.
2. Someone tells you they found a typo in your book.
After it has been printed, after you can do anything about it.
3. Someone tells you they liked your book a lot...except for _____________.
Fill in the blank. The important thing is, don't argue with the reader. They know what they like. Respond graciously, thank them for taking the time to read the book and contacting you.
Also, using the mystical powers of Random.org, a winner was drawn for Stephanie Morrill's Out With The In Crowd.
And the winner is:
Question: Was there an occurance, an interaction with someone, or an epiphanal moment when you thought, "Yup, I'm a writer."
