I am currently writing in my bathtub. This is awesome and the first time I have managed to arrange this, but it is now my number one favorite place to write.
I have one all-time favorite reader. Of course, she doesn't know it, and you know, I figure that'd be a weird thing to tell someone, right?
Anyway, she's read my stuff from the beginning. She's a cool person, but I also adore her because she wrote me from my very first story and for years after, pointing out all my mistakes. (There are many, LOL! Especially the old ones.)
Man, I used to get SO mad at myself after I received her emails. I swear, I'd sit down with my next WIP and work so hard to get it right, to not let my readers down. To this day, I still think of her every time I edit.
Then she didn't write me for a couple years, and I was a little bummed. (I switched emails, but didn't have a web site at the time.)
I don't like to let my readers down. I can be annoying and cocky as any other writer, I'm sure, but I can't think of anything I feel more deeply as I feel the dismay at letting down someone who bothers to read my stuff.
She is definitely my number one favorite reader. Wouldn't be the writer I am, without her. How can you not love that?
I guess I'm a-ramblin' today. I guess y'all know I've just hit about the 3/4 mark in the WIP, which is typically when I completely unravel and freak out and become convinced I'm' actually getting worse.
The enormous number of kitten pictures in this post is a long story. Okay, well, at first, I included more of my neurotic freak-out, in which I used the word excruciating. When I went to find some blog images, I googled "excruciating" images. (Do NOT, please, pretty please.) And to undo the horrible awfulness that popped up on my page, I gathered a bunch of kitten pictures.
Ever see something you wish you hadn't? Hear something you wish you hadn't? Do you have a favorite reader?
Ever take your laptop and write in the bathtub?
And do you have a point in your stories, where you typically freak out and become a little neurotic?
