The person who got the book deal instead of you didn't twitter all day.
Amen. I may have to type that up and put it above my laptop.
Denied twitter access for several hours, I managed to lose myself in Horrifiques and with the start of chapter three, Sydney seems to have discovered her voice. Phew! For the first two chapters that girl's sense of humour was forced and dry and I thought I'd drifted back twenty years to when my stories were all bleeding hearts without the blood. Shudder. And there was me all worried a mere 24 hours ago. Pfft. Idiot. Just don't question me this time tomorrow.
And I'll leave you with a further inspirational quote(s) that probably isn't very inspirational at all - you have to live in my head.
Sister-in-law: "So why haven't you got a book deal like," holds book up, "this person has."
Me: "Because they wrote a better book that I did."
Sister-in-law: "Well, why don't you write a better book."
Me: "I'm trying." :)
