You might be a writer...  
Gakked from quiet_rebel, You Might Be a Writer via lilithsaintcrow.

OMG, this would be funnier if it wasn't SO TRUE. Of especial trueness to me:

3. If you've ever lost sleep worrying about whether someone who does not actually exist (specifically, a character you've made up) will be able to survive the upcoming alien attack, repair a broken relationship, or save their one-and-only love from interrogation by terrorist ... you might be a writer.

6. If you have spent hours researching esoteric or specialized information on a certain career, historical event, or industrial process, just so you could get one single paragraph correct ... you might be a writer.

and, of course:

8. If this sentence makes sense to you: "So I had a request for a partial, and the day after I sent it out two more queries paid off, and now I've got three agents reading material - but I'm still worried about the resolution, so I've been revising my secondary plot thread all week, and I'm thinking about killing off Jeffrey in the climax instead of sending him off to prison." ... you might be a writer.

But really, there are kernels of truth in every single one. And though I have never actually done #2, now I really, really want to know the answers to those questions posed...

Haha. I pretty much agreed with all of them.

Just to clarify, lilithsaintcrow posted the link, I don't think she wrote the list up.

Aha, got it. Edited to reflect as much. :-)

OMG, this list is brilliant.
