Five Things I Didn’t Know About Writing a Book

Resident Writer often translates into Resident Babysitter.

Guys you’re dating will call at any old time because they think all you do is sit at a computer, waiting for them to ring, which is generally true.

Every time your Mother goes on the computer, she will complain that “it's much slower than it used to be” because obviously your book (all eight word documents, plus backups) is choking up her hard drive.

Your Mother will appear in the middle of the night and exclaim that your typing is too loud and ask if you really have to type that loud, to which the answer is, yes - tap, tap, tap.

At the end of the day you’d rather pull yourself over hot coals with a refrigerator tied to your back than reply to a simple email. Blogging has to be performed drunk and at gunpoint.
 

Yeah, yeah, email me
