You Know You're a Writer (Who Runs) [9 of 10]

Patience, My Friend, is a Virtue


I like to think that everyone has a passion. Maybe they don't. I don't know what the ratio is for those who have a passion vs. those who simply have a hobby, but a passion is something that drives you. It can often become an obsession. It's not passive. A hobby is for relaxation.

I am passionate about writing - and you likely are too. I'm also passionate about running, but writing definitely takes a front seat there. If you like writing and/or running, you'll love today's quotes.



You know you're a runner when running 5 miles is more fun than standing in line.



You know you're a writer when revising is more fun than waiting in line.


Running 5 Miles in More Fun than Standing in Line


You know you're a runner when you have more patience running for over an hour than you do standing in line at the store for 5 minutes.

You could run in place to pass the time. Or start planning next month's workout sessions.

Or you could just be patient like a normal human being.

Revising is More Fun than Waiting in Line


You know you're a writer when you have more patience re-writing the same paragraph for an hour than you do waiting in line at the bank for 5 minutes.

You could get out your notebook and start jotting down ideas for your next story. Or write down physical descriptions of everyone else standing in line and let your mind wander about where they came from and where they're headed. Let your mind wander.

So, the next time you have five spare minutes, take a moment to write something. Or just pretend you're still waiting in line.


Until next time, keep on keepin' on!
