I tend to wake up early in the 4 am range and, since I'm too lazy to get out of bed, I pull the laptop up, balance it on my legs and write on my back. The bonus is that if I fall asleep the laptop falls forward and hits me on the head, which wakes me up. The only thing is that I'm afraid I will fall...

So are you a P. Mcmanus fan and member of The Rancid Crabtree Fly-Fishing & Filosofical Society? Or did you just read his book on writing? What is your genre? I am actually related to a lot of people who resemble Rancid Crabtree and I married Retch Sweeney. My genre is mystery. I have finished t...

Rejection!

John Grisham received 54 rejections from agents for "A Time to Kill". Stephen King says that he had enough rejections to fill two spikes in his bedroom. What's the record out there on a novel? I just started sending my ms out to agents and have received four rejections so far. While I am prepared fo...
