If you have a clever turn of phrase or a lovely paragraph, do not save it. Just write it down. Don't think, oh but I want it to go sixty pages later, because by the time you get to sixty pages, it is no longer going to work. I always do this. ALWAYS. I should know by now, if it seems like a good idea at the time, JUST WRITE IT DOWN. You're not wasting your good ideas upfront because you'll come up with more good ideas later.
In other news, I actually bought 50 Shades of Grey on my Kindle last night because I was consumed with curiosity. But then immediately after I clicked the "Buy" button, I was struck by disgust at myself for spending $9.99 on Twilight fan fiction,* and I canceled my order before it could appear on my device. #cametomysenses
Yeah I just hashtagged that.
Also, why is everyone leaving to get a Tumblr? I am a cantankerous old woman and cannot make technological transitions easily.
*Just clarifying, I think there's some really awesome fan fiction out there, some of it better than published original fiction. I just don't want to pay for it, is all. And I don't think anybody is going to argue 50 Shades of Grey underwent massive editing from its original form as Master of the Universe.
