Ok that’s quite enough of all that whining, thankssomuch.

Today is a much better day. I ate a bowl of Life cereal just because, I tried the Stairclimber at the gym for the first time, and Aidan just learned where his belly is and will show you with great gusto, which I find endlessly adorable. Life is better.

Once I got over the initial shock of learning that the Internet is full of people who have strong opinions and little patience for tact, life got easier. You guys have spoiled me! My Internet (and real life) friends are so sweet to me, I guess I’d forgotten that not everyone is as kind.

No matter, though, because today is a new day. This is not the first time I’ve had to pull myself up by my bootstraps, and it won’t be the last. It takes awhile to grow a thicker skin, but I figure if I can beat depression I can handle this too.

As for my future as a writer? I’ll just keep on writing, obviously. I’ll keep learning where and when I can, writing as much as possible, and with any luck my books will just keep getting better and better.

Theme song of the day? Kashmir by Led Zeppelin.

Also? The book trailer for PWNED is out! Wanna take a peek? (Please be kind, my budget for this trailer was approximately $0)

  1. I’m convinced that people are stupid. I’m sorry they were stupid to you, but glad that today is a better day.

    Watching the trailer I had one of those, huh?, flashes. Is Norman perhaps named after Stormin’ Norman Schwarzkopf of Gulf War (#1) fame?

  2. -Blanche, You deserve a cookie! Yes! Norman is named Norman MacArthur, and his name is a mash-up of Stormin Norman Schwarzkopf and General Douglas MacArthur. You’re precisely the second person to have noticed that! Norman’s screen name is even StorminNorman ;)

  3. I love your book trailer! Hilarious… just goes to show you don’t need a whopping budget, just a wicked sense of humour! Congratulations – job well done!!
