Re: Do you have a new blog post?

The pen is mightier than the sword. In which I discuss my priorities in relation to my blog.

Re: Family interference

I live 2,500 away from my family and my roommate knows that if my door is closed I'm busy unless its really important so I don't have many interruption issues. As for writing in general, my mom loves my book (one of the few who read the first draft) and my dad is very supportive. I pretty much only...

Re: Family interference

I know that I'm being overly dramatic. But it frustrates me that whenever the people in my house work, and I interrupt them, they have grounds to be upset. But when they interrupt me, it's ok, because I'm just reading. EVEN IF IT'S FOR WORK. Ugh. My dad is the same way! If he walks in on my typing ...

Re: The Coffee Shop - JULY

We love it. In the same way you love someone who you also want to kill. Yeah. That's it.
...Yes. This is right on the mark, speaking from experience in both areas... hahaha

Re: The Coffee Shop - JULY

I didn't actually "do" the coffee shop June, so I'm ready to get comfortable for the July one! I'm suffering with a bout of the "Am I Crazies" right now. I just don't feel good enough :( Sorry to be a downer. It seems to be going around! In June I finished my draft. I would think I would be ecstati...

Re: National Novel Writing JULY - Word Count Challenge

OK, I did not meet my goal of 20k in June, and I know for certain that July is going to be just as busy for me as June was, so I'm aiming for 15k... I might be spending some time in the coffee shop thread complaining about my lack of time to write, but who knows, maybe I'll get my mojo back soon! I ...

Re: The Coffee Shop - JUNE

There are a handful of books in this world, you know? That when you close then you think, "My god I am never going to be the same." And also they are the books that when you close the book you have to sit there and stare into space because otherwise you might implode under the weight of it all? Tho...

Re: Weird google phrases for your blog

I am very proud to say that "examples of nihilism in hamlet" and "good books to read for 2012 young women" are two of my top search keywords. But some fashion site came up as well, and I don't believe I've ever said anything about fashion ever... I didn't know there was a keyword section of the stat...

Re: The Coffee Shop - JUNE

Subject change - So, for the past four weeks or so I've been toying around with an idea. Keep in mind it is a very preliminary idea and I'm just sketching out ideas right now all on my lonesome, but I was considering organizing a summer's end critique festival (like a music festival for writers!)

Re: When can you tell the gender of a writer?

This is something I am concerned about in my writing too. I am female, but many — as a matter of fact, most — of my stories are told from the perspective of a male. I don't know why this happens, it just does. I'm a writer; I write what comes to my head... And while I'm not particularly concerned ab...

Re: Weird Writing Habits

I have written all of my best short stories in the dead of night. I'm talking like 2-4 in the morning. It's not a habit, though; I doesn't NEED to be that time for me to write short stories, it just so happens that all the really good ones that I love are ones that spawned out of semi-consciousness....
