How to survive a relationship with a writer

I love #4. I often wonder if I’ll have the FBI knocking on my door some day. Some of the places my research takes me on the web . . . oh boy.

  1. Loved this and immediately shared it with my husband who laughed but also had that look that betrayed how well he’s learned these lessons.


  2. Personally like #6 …not sure what that says about me?


  3. #s 1, 2, 5, and 9 are also very good. I might add a note. #11. Don’t tell your writer, “See. You need to write like that,” referring to someone else’s writing.


  4. Hi Mr. Dellosso,

    This is regarding your comments on #4 on the list. I took writing courses several years ago, and one of my courses had to be on something non-fiction. So I chose history of execution methods. But I quickly found it was a very broad topic. I down-graded it to American history of execution methods and condensed it even further, because it was supposed to be for teens. But I did a lot of research, between library books and the internet, I had much to work with. But the topic became so dark, I had to take breaks from it, because it was very gruesome. And I did stumble on a video or a picture of a hanging execution that appeared to be in the middle east. Visually, it was enough to make one’s stomach turn, So was a bit more cautious after that.
