Writers are Forgetful

(I did not write this)

I once dated a writer and

Writers are forgetful,

but they remember everything.

They forget appointments and anniversaries,

but remember what you wore,

how you smelled,

on your first date…

They remember every story you’ve ever told them —

like ever,

but forget what you’ve just said.

They don’t remember to water the plants

or take out the trash,

but they don’t forget how

to make you laugh.

Writers are forgetful


they’re busy


the important things.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
