You know you have been bitten by the writing bug, if:
10. You cannot seem to switch the muse off, and it hits you at the worst possible moments.
9. You have a better idea about the likes and dislikes of your (target) literary agent than those of your better half.
8. You keep wishing that coffee is a food group on which humans could sustain solely.
7. You keep checking on the net to see if the prices on Dictaphone-Transcribers have come down yet.
6. Much to the agony of the members of your family, you insist on acting out every new twist/conversation in your manuscript.
5. You do not think having conversations with characters in your book out loud is odd.
4. People at your table have to resort to wiping their mouths on their clothes, because you keep snagging the napkins to jot down your ideas.
3. You keep eavesdropping on private conversations blatantly and maintain that it’s all part of your job.
2. It doesn’t embarrass you to accidentally show up wearing mismatched socks to a business meeting, but you’d feel naked if you didn’t lug around your laptop wherever you went.
1. You tend to blubber, “Oh, that’s ’s favorite dish. Wish she could join us today!” when you see certain entrées served at restaurants.
Rosemary continues to write posts, filled with her quirky sense of humor, related to writing and life in general.
Lisa has just had her first novel, Milk Fever, published recently. Her blogs seem deceptively simple at first sight. However, read on and you’ll soon catch on to the fact that each of those posts packs a down-to-earth truth about the subject at hand.
Barb, by her own confession, is a writer, an artist, a world creator, and a story-teller. She actively pursues ‘happiness’ in various ways in her blog, and also generously shares information she has gathered, about writing and the publishing industry, via her extensive research.
Do check out their blogs, and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I’m supposed to reveal seven things about myself. I’ve already done quite a few posts in that vein over the past few months (and phew, that was hard). So, with your permission, I’ll just skip over to the more interesting step of passing on the awards.
I’d like to pass this award on to these blogs:
- An Insomniac’s Guide to the Writing Life
- Random Thoughts
- Plotting and Scheming
- Kelly Polark
- Suma Subrahmaniam

- Barb at Creative Barbwire
- June at Miss Blue Stocking

All of these blogs give me something to mull over whenever I visit them and hence add a touch of authenticity to my day!
