I retweeted this on Twitter and I thought I’d share it here, too along with a few additions.

Original Tweet (via @PaperFury):

REASONS TO KEEP A WRITER IN YOUR HOME

• they know weird facts

• they’re low maintenance because all they do is eat and write

• great for midnight chats because they don’t sleep

• if they have to edit they’ll procrastinate by cleaning your whole house

I’ll also add:

  • They almost always come with cats (if you don’t like cats, then you should probably avoid writers in general)
  • Amazing book collection/personal library, which they’ll (most likely) share
  • Will never say no to a cozy night in
  • Lifetime (and then some) supply of pens, paper, and blank notebooks.
  • Always have coffee and/or tea on hand.

If you’ve got more to add, share in the comments…

Ready for Your Next Book Fix?

It’s cold, the holidays are over, and you’re stuck indoors. Are you looking for an entertaining distraction? Look no further:

Available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other book retailers (if your favourite bookstore doesn’t carry Love Lies Bleeding, be sure to let them know you’d like them to start!)
Read the book one reviewer called “abominably good” (Callum Beesley, Vamped.org) and another called a “rare gem…9 out of 10” (Andy Boylan, Taliesin Meets the Vampires).
