Yeah, there are a lot of KU clickfarm assclowns out there. Yeah, there are people hiring ghostwriters that don't give a single fuck about craft and are just in it for a quick buck. But here's something to remember

WEDNESDAY. It's important to recognize that the negative voices in your head are not always your own. They may belong to a critical parent, a bad friend, a toxic partner, an abusive boss, or MALTHORNODOX THE UNREDEEMABLE, the demon you awakened when you opened that puzzle box.

Definitely a bad call to eat a big bowl of pasta for lunch, when I was in the middle of an action chase scene. "He ran in the darkness, heart thrumming in his chest. And then he slowed down. He felt kinda sleepy and heavy. And then he curled on the floor and took a nap. The end"

To that person who waved at me, and I waved back only to find out that he was waving to someone behind me: I was actually waving to someone behind you so I wasn't being weird. Shut up. You're weird

Me, observing my character: Okay, gently... we need to get the romantic tension just right... don't rush into— *Character trips, tumbles into romantic interest's bed, somehow losing all his clothing in the process* Me: No! Bad character! *writes additional two paragraphs *

By the way if you want to read "Woman in the Window" because it sounds interesting but don't want to support a lying sack of shit, try "Saving April" which is almost exactly the same plot (it came out first) & the author isn't trash!

5-year old son wakes up, zig-zags, crashes into door, groans, stumbles to kitchen. A whimper, "coacoa" Hard to start the day before your first mug of coacoa

And now I've been writing full time for more than 2 years. It really is a dream come true. But it would never have been possible if I didn't work while writing.

I only quit my job when: A. I actually made enough money B. My wife was making enough money in case my earnings took a dive C. We had enough savings to keep us afloat for a year

Good thing too, because surprisingly enough, my series wasn't a bestseller. In fact, it flopped. That's publishing business for you. The awesome part was that we all got to eat, and keep our home. Eating is great, recommended, even.

Wrote in weekends, woke up in five in the morning to write, wrote a bit at *checks to see if ex-boss is following* work. When I wasn't writing, I was planning scenes, outlining, networking with other authors, learning the business.

BUT I stayed behind my desk, because, y'know, I had a kid, and a baby daughter. presumably they had to eat, and I guess, clothes? So the plan was, until I get my first huge check, I'd keep working

I started self publishing on December 2014. I didn't like my job, it was, quoting my wife "killing my soul." I already imagined the success of my novels, the translations, the three-part-film, starring Jennifer Lawrence (non negotiable)
