As the timeless wisdom of The Legend of Zelda says, “It’s dangerous to go alone!” So why do we writers think we can do this all on our own, anyway? Is it because a majority of us are introverts and hiss at the thought of socializing with others? Or is it because we’ve accepted that we’re societal pariahs and must brave this life alone?
Good news, my fellow writers – we don’t actually have to go it alone! A few months ago, I wrote about benefits of having writer friends, but what are your options? Fortunately for you, I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of the types of writer friends you may encounter in the wild, complete with gifs.
I pronounce it with a hard “g,” by the way. Not trying to start a fight here, but it’s very helpful if you need to distinguish between moving images and a brand of peanut butter.
As you probably know, I just wrapped up my first semester at Messiah College a few weeks back, and what better way to tell you about it than with a bunch of GIFs! I also wanted to give myself a bit of a break from writing such long blog posts, since, spoilers, I’ve got a big one planned for Friday.
Not much else of an explanation is needed, so on to the GIFs!
(none of the gifs are mine unless otherwise noted. I’ve just been collecting them for a while)
