- Apparently, this is an old prototype of the typewriter, the writing ball.
So I’m out of excuses. My new laptop is finally up and running with all of the documents from my old computer loaded onto its hard drive. I’ve got my favorite word-editor uploaded. I’ve found my place where I left off in my revisions.
Time to get back to work!
I stayed up until midnight working on my revisions.
I have to admit it.
I’ve missed this.
- IBM Selectric. Just a step above my laptop. ha.
Sure, it was fun acting like a normal person for a few days. I played some really mind-numbing games and read some mind-blowing books.
Kissy-face and I gave up TV for a week and ate dinner listening to audio books. It was fantabulous.
But–Life feels kind of meaningless if you aren’t striving towards a dream. I know it for sure now; I write because I have to, because I love to, because I’m driven to.
I don’t care if it ever makes me money or proves that I have talent. (although, that would be nice, right?) I just love writing.
- OMG this is the coolest looking thing ever. I want. My birthday is June 4th. Pleeeeeezzzeee.
It feels good to be back.
Wish me luck on my revisions. (I NEED IT!!)
Do you ever wonder how those authors who’ve written twenty books can sell based solely on synopses? THIS IS HOW THEY DO IT.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Synopsis Salad Shooter.
Why should stories make sense when they can be fun?? Give it a whirl and I guarantee you will come up with a killer plot idea that will have agents swooning.
(If you need help with any of the parts of speech, I put a brief description at the bottom of this post, along with examples I came up with.)

Sooo…since the beginning of the week, I’ve tried to read some of my good old favorite blogs only to find that they are all inundated with the same crap about the e-book drama. Sure it’s crazy stuff, but I’m so over hearing about it already. Kiss and make up and listen to the consumer not your corporate wallet.
Long live paperbacks…until I’m rich and have an actual room called “the library,” then long live hardbacks. E-books will be a fun distraction, but can never completely annihilate the real books.
Crud. Now I just did a post about them, too.
