New Book Out

Mira Grant, aka , has a new book out called Feed and the website for it is major cool.

Remember! Check out your infection zone before going outside.

Well, that was helpful-not.

Back in March, I posted a poll regarding my twitter posts cross-posting here. Now, over one month later, the results are inconclusive. Sigh, One person liked them, one person didn’t, and two people didn’t care.

I’m not sure what to do, except leave things as they are, since there is one person who likes them and the majority doesn’t care.

Yes, I am ignoring the fact that only four people read my posts. 😀

Oh hi, writer’s angst

I feel like I’m a terrible writer and have no hope of ever getting published. The short story I wrote to submit for a magazine came back from a beta labeled "deus es machina."

*fail* 

If it has such a big flaw, I should just start over with another story, but I don’t have a clue what to write, if I can think a cliche this one was so great, are any of my ideas worth pursuing? 

Oh hello, Writer’s Angst. It’s been a while, hasn’t it. 😥 
 

Frustrating to Wait

Hi guys,

What’s up with me you wonder? I’m still learning this writing stuff, now with the help of the most awesome, wonderful, amazing, and *evil*  as mentor. For those of you who might not know what a writing mentor does, think basic training sargent with words. She takes my writing, makes it bleed profusely and THEN when she sends it back, her e-mail has comments that would make a neurotic writer cry.

Isn’t she wonderful?

The downside is that she has a life and her own writing to do, so can’t always get the crits back to me immediately. The waiting gets quite frustrating. I should work on other stories, but I can’t shake the feeling that I’ll write the same mistakes if I don’t get her feedback first.  Not sure what to do, her feedback is so valuable I don’t want to write more until I get it because my writing quality jumped up dramatically after she started helping me.

I love her to death and will never be able to pay her back fully for this. 😀
