However, the homework thing? Okay, how did I forget about the whole having to read hundred of pages in a week thing? And papers? I haven't written a paper in years. I picture the first one I have to turn in coming back with nothing on except the words, "How did you ever get into this class?" written in bright red ink.
(As you can probably guess, I'm procrastinating on finishing my homework right now! Some 'study' habit you never forget...)
As usual, lots of people are saying interesting things about writing:
Maureen Johnson on what writers do all day. I admit it, I fangurl her like crazy, but hey, she writes amazing books *and* has one of the funniest blogs around. Go, read, laugh! And then buy one of her books. You won't be sorry, I promise.
Therese Fowler's posts are always interesting and articulate. This is one of my faves, as it sheds light on the idea that having an agent=selling a book.
Also from Therese Fowler, her list of top ten writing mistakes.
Charles Stross on life as a full-time writer.
Have a novel written and want to enter a contest that offers a chance for publication with Simon & Schuster? Then check this out.
