I used to get told off for lying when I was a kid, now I can do it all the time and it's called fiction! :)
I got told off for day dreaming... who knew I would one day get paid for it.  :D

When my wife catches me looking at naughty pictures on the internet, I can claim I'm looking for covers.

That's funny. Last night I was on deviant art looking at half naked soldier men to gather ideas for my writing and my partner gives me this sideways look and says, 'What are you doing?'

I tried to keep a straight face (I should note that well built soldier types are NOT my sort at all. Give me Benedict Cumberbatch anyday --Sherlock Holmes UK version) and I said, 'I'm thinking about how to describe masculine men.' He smirks and says, 'Well, my ego just receded.'

You get a writer's 'high' when:

You find just the right word to bring a sentence together.
You read through what you wrote the previous day and decide; 'it's really quite good.'
People line up for you to sign your book after giving a talk (three people do constitute a line - don't they? ::))
You read an excerpt from your children's book to a class and they listen attentively and laugh in the right places.
You get fan mail from children  ;D
With the Headmaster's Approval - General/romance. The Breadwinners - family saga. Mystery at Ocean Drive - YA action adventure.  Something to Read on the Plane - humour/travel . But Can You Drink The Water? - humorous fiction. I Made These Up - short stories. Leon Chameleon PI, Bheki and the Magic Light, The Race -- children's

You can give one of the filthy, unkempt members of a deranged cult a description that paints him as looking surprisingly like your ex-sister in law instead of causing trouble by telling the sorry woman how you really feel about her. NOT that I would EVER do such a thing. :D
