With my responses:
Ahhhh, so you’re “epbush”. I’ve seen you comments on Alias Mother. You are a very funny lady (loved your comment when A.M. was considering sending her Buddha to be with the in-laws – it was brilliant).
Thanks, I love A.M. She’s funnier than me!
I just stumbled on your blog while lurking around other blogger’s blogroll since I can’t get around to writing my own post. Too much work. I love it.
Thanks again. I’ve been neglecting it while I write my book. My blog and my kids are going to call the authorities on me. Get it Author-ities!!!! HA ha. Neglect is so funny.
How did you start writing your book? Did you start with a plot or with a character? Have you ever written a book before? I admire your mania.
I started with a feeling that I would die a horrible death if I didn’t write, and had nothing worth writing about. I started with an idea to create a world that was mine to control. I have never written a book before, but I had been a professional writer for several years before my family came along.
I always dreamed I would write a book “someday”, so I started a blog to start writing on a regular basis. What I found was all these brilliant writers blogging who write so much better than I ever could. I put the dream aside. So now I’ll live vicariously. Keep writing.
I don’t know if what I am writing is any good, I just know I am writing. It could be dreck and painful to read, but hey, Clive Cussler* gets published, so hope springs eternal.
*Note to Clive Cussler. I loved the movie Sahara. I went out and bought one of your books. Dude. Verbs make writing interesting. Vary them. And stop using the same common nouns 4 times in a paragraph. Your writing annoys me.
Good Golly, I hope I get published so people can slam my writing in their blogs…
