Yes you ARE a writer.

Just something I needed to read today, and I bet some of you out there need the chuck on the shoulder, too. And if you're not following Janet Reid's fabulous blog about her life as an agent, how to get published, the life of a writer, well, let this serve as a head's up to add it to your blog roll.

And I'm going to take the NaNo plunge for the third time. Let's see if it'll produce anything of note this year. I haven't been much of a writer for a few months, and I think I need to just remind myself of what I love doing. And hate doing. But love. Heh.

ALWAYS. I have GOT to get back into a groove, I've been seriously down on myself for months. <3

I already decided to take up NaNoWriMo this year, especially since I have a nice idea I really would like to work. I just hope I manage to balance it with college and work. XD

Still, thanks for reminding me of my commitment. ;) Race ya to the finish line. *runs off in his Pratchett-esque fedora*

50K - you can TOTALLY churn that out!

Yay, got my first 2000 words down tonight. But I'm afraid my style is too compact for my own good - need to filibuster more.

I'm trying too --> I'm tangled_threads on the NaNo boards if you want to be NaNo buddies, too :)

I've been reading a lot of Justine Larbalestier's blog posts lately. I haven't read any of her books (though I have read her husband Scott Westerfield's stuff) but her advice gets me psyched to write.

I have a bunch of agent/publisher sites I follow and I usually find them incredibly motivational, too. I've just been meh about my writing, so that was a good feel good about it post that I needed.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
