Ps. I only sleep with my book under my pillow when I have nightmares with my eyes wide open.


Write that damn book for you. You're going to sleep with it under your pillow every night anyway.

...Don't think I don't know you do that!

That awkward moment when you're too depressed and insecure to shove your book in random stranger's faces.


Another day. No new job. No new book.

I've been writing in the same world for the past five-six years. Especially since I published book 1. But this book I'm working on now... I am so burnt out. I've been working on the same thing since September! I'll take a week, come back, hate it again, take another week, and UGH. This is going so SLOW. I wanna know how the book ends!

My editor (This is our first time working together): Yeah, judging on how fast I got the first chapter done it's gunna take 80 more hours to complete the book. Here's what I've done so far.

Think I might faint. I really want to be a professional author with good grammar and no hick talk. I STILL use "Ya'll" when I'm texting my friends. Instead of "you two" it's ya'll. 3-5+ it's "All ya'll!" Anyway, I'm paying this guy $10/hr. THAT MAKES MY BOOK AN $800 investment. The last o... read more

I asked the county classifieds if there were any D&D groups this newbie could join...And all of them had boys who bullied me in school and thought they could do it over facebook...

I got drunk again last night... I'm worried this is a serious problem... Then again I've ALWAYS worried about being an alcoholic.

Sometimes I wish I could go back to writing for fun and not for "work"...

I went to go visit my book at the library... I couldn't find it but I found one I read and loved as a child.
