I love hats and I just bought a new one this weekend (a black fedora with a jaunty little bow) and the moment I looked at it, I thought, "that's a writer's hat".
That got me to thinking about what kinds of hats I wear, literally and figuratively.
On the literal side: I have running hats (caps, visors, reflective) Fall hats (leather and tweed) Winter hats (warm and snowproof) and sun hats (the bigger the better!).
On the figurative side: I wear my family/friend relationship hats and my Chief Bottle Washer/Dog Walker/Food Preparer hats.
I also sometimes wear one of these:
And then there are the WRITER'S HATS: The Creative Thinking Cap, The Editor's Beret (because my editor might very well be a haughty French artist) and my Marketing Matador Hat (because I'm in the fight to get readers to focus on the bullseye of my books.
Tell me Killer Friends: What kinds of hats do you wear? Which do you like best? And which do you wish you could give away?
