Dear Writers

Even though I haven't been around for a while, I think it's so cool that there are so many amazing writers on blogger. 

I've seen so many people put "Write and publish a novel" on their bucket lists. Because it's fashionable? Because it's glamorous? I don't know. It makes me frustrated though, since most of these people are never going to lift a finger to make it happen. If you want to be an author, what better time to do it than now? Why wait? What are you waiting for? A time when it's going to be easier? A time when you're going to be better? I don't think you're ever going to find a more convenient time. Writing is never convenient and you're never going to be better unless you write.


So for all of you guys who are already writing that novel, you're awesome.

Congratulations to all of you who participated in NaNoWriMo. It doesn't matter if you won or not, because you tried. And I hope you had fun!


  1. I feel like this when I tell people I have a novel on submission. About 70% of people say they want to write a novel someday. But after I tell them how long it took me, and how hard it was to get an agent, I think I've scared off all the posers. ;)

    Hope you had a productive November!

  2. So true! It's not like the rest of your life ever takes a vacation. :)

    Glad to hear from you again. Hope things are winding down for you a bit.
