Writer's Angst and some Thank Yous


Thank You Jeanette!


Thank You Steph in the City!






Here's a cute video I found over at Miss Snark's First Victim. It's an advertisement for Authoress's Book Agent Demystified, but I still thought it was really funny and kind of true. At least for the beginning of most of our writing journeys.



Have a great weekend!

Yea for awards! My favorite was packing her pic, stuffed goose, and chocolate with her ms. You mean that doesn't work?

Jessica said...

Thanks guys. Awards are fun. I'm hoping to give out a whole bunch soon...
I'm glad you all like the video. I thought it was SO funny, and yes, the chocolate part cracked me up. I was like, what is she sprinkling in there? And I then I realized and started laughing like a hyena because I'm such a chocolate freak too. LOL
Glad I'm not the only one. Heehee

Irritable Mother said...

Yeah, I wondered that, too. About the chocolates and nuts, etc. Does that help?
Cuz if it doesn't, I'd sure want to keep them for myself. *grin*

Congrats on the awards, my friend!

OMG! How funny with the goose toy and chocolates!! I laughed once when my mom told me I should sent the lit agents a rose cuz when Kate Winslet auditioned for 'Titanic', she sent James Cameron a rose and signed it, "From Your Rose"...I was like, "Great idea mom, but I don't think it would work that way in this situation! :)
