Love Me/Love Me Not

You remember the feeling of first falling for someone?  How exciting it was?  It's not as common as you might assume.  It requires a blend of several factors.  Chemistry, timing, and maybe even a little alcohol.

It's the same when you fall for a story.  Your story.  You might think you will never feel the same as you did for the first one, or the last one, or that special one you wrote in college. But you will.

It just takes the right blend of story, characters, and maybe even a little alcohol.

You can love again and it can be just like the first time.


  1. A LITTLE alcohol? So that's what I'm doing wrong.

    And I hope this means you and your story are getting lots of quality time together. Oh, to be in love again. My manuscript and I are at the wearing-sweats-to-bed, dirty-socks-left-on-the-floor, put-the-damn-cap-on-the-toothpaste! stage.

    1. LOL! My manuscript and I are at the I-never-want-to-see-you-again,I've-wasted-my-best-years-on-you, I-can't-believe-I-ever-loved-you, I-hope-you-die-alone stage.

  2. I might not be as enamoured of my recently finished wip (revisons, you know)but I can't wait to make it better and my recent week of vaca reminded me that I really do love to write.

  3. I love the pic and the captions -- Love, love love! Thanks for the laughter; we all need more of that. :-)

  4. For me, it's a lot of alcohol.

    And I think the biggest hurdle is after your first big novel. I mean, I remember when I wrote my first novel. That was all I could think about. I never thought I could "love again." Then I wrote another one - it was SO much better than the first - and now all I can think about is the next one and the next one and the one after that.

    In literary terms, I guess I'm kind of a whoring tramp.

  5. ahahah, adore the pic, my dear!


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
