I can’t tell you whether dating a writer is a good or bad idea. I am a writer but no one dated me. All I can say with any certainty is what, roughly, will happen to you if you love a writer. For me the world is too big, too loud, too bright, too close. I disconnect and shut out sometimes. Everyday is different for me. Some days I dont load the machine, shorts dont get changed and conversations have no supply. Some days are procrastination days when I dont feel like writing a single word. Be ready for signing up to have an opinion about everything. Lines, holes, characters, concepts and development and names, or imagery or rhyme schemes or references. There will be days when you need to talk to me. About everything. Possibly twice. These are days when everything gets trapped up in my head clogged between the head and the pen and the only other option is it comes spewing out my mouth. Sometimes brains just need an external hard drive. Listen. Nod. It’ll be okay.
But more than all that, more than anything, be loved by a writer. I am honest, there is no fluff, no sparing of feelings, no stretched truths. No beating around the bush and no lies, even if sometimes it hurts the feelings. Being in a relationship will guarantee honesty and trust. I find the deeper meaning in many things. I am such a person who is designed to break down sentences, put as much meaning as possible into paragraphs, and to always find the hidden story. Putting up walls is simply a speed bump in the journey for I would want to know and tell everything. I am free-spirited and creative. I tend to go with the wind, pick up and change directions often, and to always look at the smaller details rather than the bigger picture. I promise never have a dull moment when in the company of me. Whether it’s going out to dinner, seeing a concert, or traveling, I treat every experience like a story.
For everyone and anyone who reads this, fall in love with a writer because they will not only add you to their story, but also pull your story out of you. They will challenge you in ways you could not possibly imagine and while dating a writer may prove difficult at times, the reward is worth the risk. You will have to deal with their frustration when they are experiencing writer’s block and their immense joy when they’re riding their writer’s high. When their work is done you will be met with a smile worth a million words. The ups and downs of dating a writer will keep you on your toes, but in the end the reward is overwhelming. Fall in love with a writer because the story inside them is more beautiful than anything an ordinary relationship could conjure.
Now I await if someone really wants to date me or be in love with me?
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
