I wish someone would do all of Shameless, line by line, in gifs. Anyone want to take on this project?

Nope, I didn’t entirely plan it. It made itself clear to me while I was writing the first draft. It’s sort of like college spring break in my head; I never know what’s going to happen or who’s going to get killed.

But I do wish people would stop using the word bae to describe things. It comes from the Danish “bæ” which means poop. ;)

Anonymous said: Do you read reader reviews of your book? (good, bad, or good and bad?) I know some ARCs are given in exchange for an honest review, and i was wondering if you were interested in those reviews when people post them.

Not really. Those reviews are really to get readers talking about the book, and possibly for publishers to find out what people are saying so they have an idea of how it will be received when it’s published. But authors don’t read them for feedback on their writing.

We’re all just a cartoon coyote in a canyon, hoping the ACME anvil doesn’t fall on our head.

Me: I’m going to make pumpkin bread. You want some?

Mom: No I really need to lose weight. Let me know if you make pumpkin pie.

I don’t understand all this fascination about living on another planet when we’re not even finished wrecking this one yet.
