The Glamorous Life of a Writer

That's me folks, workin' on my edits and rewrites for my up coming coffee table book, Deb's Daily Drivel. As you can see, it's such a glamorous life. I haven't seen the sunshine in three damn days. Oh wait, that's a Kid Rock song. I haven't eaten in a week and survive on only coffee and cigarettes. Yea, maybe if I was a supermodel, but who am I kidding? I get off my ass every 15 minutes or so to peruse the contents of the pantry and fridge and sit back down again, usually with snack in hand. However, I do enjoy stayin' in my PJ's all day, bare faced, and wearin' a 1980's scrunchie in my hair.

So, please excuse my lack of blogging and commenting on your fabulous blogs for a bit while I try to get these edits in decent shape. Seriously, how do the famous novelists do it? My literary masterpiece is only 365 daily tidbits of comedic advice I learned along this wild ride called life and I can't seem to get my shit together. Laziness on my part I suppose. Anywho, don't expect greatness, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm keepin' it real.

  5. Ha! I relate to this all too well. Good luck with the edits! I eagerly await the day your coffee table book graces my own coffee table, not just because I want to read it, but because I really need something to cover up all of those stains.

  9. Woohoo! I'm excited to get that fun book in my hands. So glad you're embarking upon this glorious lifestyle. And I can't ever sit at a keyboard without food within a few inches from me. Don't worry how long it takes, so long as you're doing it, and don't believe anyone who complains about taking a "full year" to write a book. Damn them, please. I hate those people. Mine took 4 years. It matters not. Enjoy the process.

  10. We sit on our arse and do it, that's how. lol.

    I can't write for as long as I used to, some days it was 9 hours a day. These days it's more like 2-3 hours then a lunch break, then maybe some more in the afternoon, although with the internet and blogging and what not now time is wasted. Then I may do some in the afternoon/evening and don't get me started when it's hot because I just cannot work when it's hot and stuffy because I start to feel sick and achy. Oh, and can't work with a migraine because that bent down angle doesn't help either.

    I write longhand with pens and A4 spiral bound notebooks and when done I type it up, it can get very boring.

  12. I love to see someone make a serious commitment without being committed. When you get done you'll be able to really live again with sunshine and everything! Don't give up now, you're almost done!

  13. I'm sure it will be wonderful when it's done. And you will be grateful that it is....
