The Care and Feeding of Writers
by Julie Butcher-Fedynich
Having a writer in your family is a blessing and a curse. The awesome part is that not only can they write the most wonderful excuse notes in the history of the world; they are smart, funny, and a constant source of entertainment.
The curse part is that they’re weird.
Just when you think you have a handle on their bizarre behavior, they come up with a new and sometimes scary little thing that they do. My husband was particularly troubled when he noticed that I was watching YouTube videos on how to dig a grave with a backhoe. To be fair, it was for a book but then, the knowledge is now in my head. We cannot unlearn this stuff. Also we do not own a backhoe so I don’t know why he’s worried.
