Hi EM...

Thanks for posting that video... I laughed my ass off... Then I played it for my son (he's 10) and he now has to hear it every day... I want it as a screensaver for my computer... Juls

As Pete mentioned, this video has been around for a while. I figured everyone would like it. I still laugh at it and I've viewed it 50 times. I made a joke that it was actually a video of me and Lisa in our living room (after) the furniture had been repossessed.

Thanks for the video I loved it. It was both funny and informative. I hate to admit that it's also discouraging for a new writer. But it's the truth and that's all we can ever hope to get in this industry. Thanks again.

Lol, that's so funny! I'm pretty sure every writer has some of those thoughts one they first get the idea of writing.

Their voices are almost the same as the ones used on Adobe Reader when you put on 'Read Out Loud'
Well, actually, I'm not sure about the guy's voice, but the woman's is I think.

I do most of my writing at a local Starbucks. Every regular knows me. I have my earbuds in to shut out phone calls, but will talk to people when I take breaks. Most people there know I aspire to be a writer. In the past month, two people have told me that they plan to take up writing. One guy, who gambles online, for money, maybe, who said his novel will take about a month to write it.

I love the video. They say these things. They can't discuss their ideas because, they have to protect them. Today, I got asked to actually send something it. I feel like I got the seven figure deal. It is a little annoying to hear these people talk about their Moby Dick. I am just hoping to get after the partial, they will ask for a full. This business is baby steps. Great tape.
All typos in my work are merely copyright traps

So when I finished my MS's first draft, my husband told me to close my eyes, (I thought he was being romantic) and then he put on this. That was before i came here obviously. I love watching this. I just worry I'm the peach one.

THAT WAS GREAT!!!! "I have a gun in my car." Classic, I loved it! Makes me feel a lot better about my novel *LOL*
Nor could I ever after see the world as I had known it. Mixed with the present scene was always a little of the past and a little of the future, and every once-familiar object loomed alien in the new perspective brought by my widened sight. --Lovecraft "The Book"
