Ten reasons why you shouldn’t employ a writer

I was determined to be a bit more timely with my blog posts this month.
Yeah, we all know how that sort of thing works out, right?
So, this morning I sat down (with determination!) and thought about what I’d planned to write and realised, Oh god, that’ll take ages!
Then, while I was procrastinating trying to find my notes, I came across this;

10 reasons you shouldn’t employ a writer;

  1. They will be drawing up plot points or character studies when they should be working.
  2. They will be assessing colleagues for potential quirks, habits or mannerisms they can use later on.
  3. They spend a lot of time trying to figure out how they can leave work and write full time.
  4. They spend a lot of time dreaming.
  5. They are inventive. Just how truthful was that CV?
  6. They might actually manipulate situations for research purposes, to see how they turn out.
  7. They might base a character on you.
  8. They might not base a character on you!
  9. They must be pretty warped individuals to come up with some of those ideas, right?
  10. You’ll never be able to read a sex scene in the same way ever again. đŸ˜‰

(Next week, just to be fair – and to allay the paranoia – I’ll talk about the reasons why you should employ a writer). Meanwhile, anyone got any more to add to the list?
