I thought I would write this piece for all those people who live with writers! So, just for you, here's how to care for your writer.
Great! The world could always use more writers. I've been writing since I was 8 years old and I'm now a lot older than 8 (we won't discuss HOW much older). I have seen my work improve and I feel that over the many MANY years I've been writing, I've gleaned some personal thoughts on what (I think) people need to know if they want to be writers.
