You gotta admit, writers are pretty stereotypically portrayed in film and television. It would seem, according to the usual portrayal- we all should:
Have questionable hygiene while tap tapping away.
Have a window nearby.
Only disconnect from our laptops if the sky is literally falling on our heads.
Not only visit Paris, but wander the streets aimlessly for a while when we do so. That’s what all good writers do, after all.
Be tortured souls.
Okay. I admit to have written late into they day while in my day-old yoga pants and unwashed hair. I don't smoke. Or have a window nearby. I HAVE wandered Paris aimlessly. But that was before I was a writer, so I don't know if it counts. There are times where the world coming to the end would be the only thing to pull me out of my writing. And I can be tortured I suppose:) What about you? How do YOU hold up against the stereotypical writer?
