In this materialistic world where people choose to either become an engineer or a Chartered Accountant and screw their lives forever, there are some “artistic” people who choose to follow their passion and turn it into a profession. These artistic people, especially a writer is considered to be one of a kind.
However, there are some basic, repetitive and so-not-creative things that every writer is literally tired and immune of hearing.
If you’re talking to a writer and asking or discussing about either of these things, there are high chances of your funeral to happen tomorrow. Careful, idiots! For curiosity is different, and dumbness or being judgmental is way too different.
1. Can you write a birthday message?
And this has been the most common request apart from someone requesting you to suggest some “unique” Instagram captions or statuses for WhatsApp! Birthday messages, anniversary notes, letter to someone’s crush/better halves or even a leave application!
2. Do you even earn anything?
No, our words pay our bills and we eat metaphors and punctuations!
3. Is that written by you or you’ve copied from somewhere?
Yes, that’s what writers do apparently – Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.
4. Have you gone through a breakup?
Because one can be a writer only after he/she goes through a bad, bad breakup! Yes, that’s the criteria to become a writer.
5. Is your favourite writer Chetan Bhagat?
First of all, he is a published and an established ‘author’. And secondly, he is not the only writer the world has got.
Guys, can we please be a little more creative and have some sensible discussions? If you are a writer or know someone who is one, this post would be so relatable for you all. Next time anyone asks you any such stupid questions, throw them out of your life. You don’t need such negativity and stupidity.
