Writerly Emotions, as told by 'Modern Family'

This show is a goldmine of reaction gifs. I know this, because I recently binge-watched seasons one-through-five.

Don't judge me.


When trying to sell yourself in a query letter.



When someone insults your word-baby.



When someone tries to lecture you on getting a real job already.



When you have an amazing idea that no one else seems to appreciate.



When writing cliff-hangers.


When you lie in bed questioning your future as an author.



When you try something risky and readers like it.



When you send someone important a draft of your story and realise it’s riddled with typos.



When chatting with fellow book nerds.



When you drag your struggling writer’s ass to Starbucks for a caffeine hit.


When someone tells you that writing is a no-money game.



When you’re pretending to know all about characters in a book you haven’t actually read.


When you get really into an emotional scene you’re writing.



When stalking fellow authors online to discover their secrets of success .



When you tell someone your career goals and they ask if you're joking.


When you try to write something subversive and clever and it doesn’t quite work out .



And finally… when the pressure starts to get to you a little. And you begin to crack.
