Writerly thoughts

I'm addicted to writing. I've already shared the fact that I'll be finishing one book by the end of this month, editing it, and then editing another one.
BUT...I also have an idea for another book-due by the end of October, and an Amazon Short I want to put out there. And did I mention Wind Goddess and Earth Goddess? I didn't???

I've also been thinking about what I'll be discussing at the Red Dirt Festival in Oklahoma in November. It just keeps going 'round and 'round in my wee little head. What am I going to say to these lovely people when they come to the panel with Me, Merline, and Christine?
Should I tell them that writing on a good day is orgasmic and on a bad day is the fifth level of hell? Should I mention that sanity is no good indicator of anything? Should I just scare the hell right out of them? lmao
Let them find that out for themselves. *grins*

I've never known anyone else but a writer who gets another writer. Period. Spouses and children will sympathize and emphathize...but they just don't get it. God bless them.

Writers are odd creatures. I make no apology for it, myself. Hell, I revel in it. I'm the square peg. And don't you wish you were the square peg, too? rofl
Uh huh.
We have great fun. *wink*

So I suppose I'll do my best to encourage them and tell them to hold onto their dreams.
But leave the sanity at the door. You don't really need it.

Writing isn't for the faint of heart. *g*

I always strive to be open about this crazy world of writing with unpubs, but try not to be too discouraging. Still you can't candycoat this business forever because what Tori said is very true.

Good luck with putting together your talk!
