  2. I am trying my best to attend Meetup and writers groups. This video shows how I feel when 99% of them start speaking. Makes me friggin' crazy.

  4. "Minus 13". hahahahaha. That needs to be the slogan for the upcoming workshop. Thanks for posting this. I'm guilty of some of the shortcomings (e.g., I don't read as much as I should), but I definitely do not harbor the mythic perspective illustrated here. And if I do, please slap it out of me!

  8. Do many aspiring writers really think like this? I mean, all in one? I could see someone thinking they could directly approach a publisher or not being aware that so many people approach agents. But do many people think that you can just bang out a bestseller without effort and without some passion for reading, at least in that genre?

  9. Oh...I was on a six month book tour and attended four book club salons. Torture. I was unable to repress my frustration at one of them. I "went Philly" on one woman.
