Sure…. having a lot of fun-loving, hilarious writer friends can have a bonus or two. When you are having a “blah” day, there is almost certainly at least one of them that will say something totally random and make you fall out of your chair laughing. Of course the downfall to that is having a mouth full of something when you read that incredibly funny facebook post & viola! New computer screen anyone?
Writers are usually at their computer, too, so you are never lonely or bored. Can’t find just the right word or phrase or need someone to help you fix your query? Bam! They are there for you. Need a kick in the butt? Want to hear someone is else is going through what you are? Need to be told “Never give up!”? Need to “word war” with someone to keep you going?… They are there!
But you know something else?? Having writer friends can suck, too! “How could this be?” you ask. Well…. just look below:
Yup. The TBR (to be read) pile is a little hard to photograph when you have gone all “Nookie”… but it was worth it for my rant. These what I am currently sitting on. How the heck am I supposed to chose from this list??? Knock it off people!!!
Tee hee…. On a serious note, I love that I am never at a loss for good reading material. The only tough decision is what to read next! Of all the e-mails I get from Barnes & Noble suggesting the next “Great Read” or “Top 10 New York Best Sellers”, I just hit “delete”. Aside from John Sandford or William Kent Krueger, I have not read anything not AW or Champagne in over two years. A few friends said “The Hunger Games” were incredible, but I feel like I would be cheating on my friends if I read them. I’ll get to them eventually… for now… what to bloody pick for this week?!?
I’ve pimped her before & I’ll pimp her again. Great job Gini! I love Kitty Katt & her “badasseryness”. Yes, that’s a word. Shut up. Can’t wait for 3 & 4. Oh lookie – #3 is downloaded!!
