Ten great reasons NOT to become a writer...
One - You might start scrabbling up some lucrative career ladder and make loads of money instead
Two - You won't have to write every day ;)
Three - You might not become a lunatic, trailing loose mental wires... (no guarantees, obvsly)
Four - You might become less intense a person, less anal, with a dash less OCD (no guarantees though. Chicken / egg argument and all that)
Five - You won't approach every personal trauma with: "Oh goodo, this'll make a cracking plot"
Six - You might not stow away conversations in a notebook or get kicked under the table by your partner for staring at people
Seven - You could have a BRILLIANT looking garden, and hobbies
Eight - You'll save loads of money on ink and paper, notebooks and pens. (Unless you become a journalist or a parish councillor instead)
Nine - You might maintain a healthy distance from yourself, dodge being over-analytical or self-absorbed. (You might even get out more and find some friends :))
Ten - You might not end up with a pallor to rival Edward Scissorhands', square eyes and ruptured radial tendons, RSI or a chair-shaped arse. (no guarantees because you might be in IT)
Or you might just find that you can't NOT write and, in that case, JUST GET ON WITH IT!
