We writers are insane.
We pour our blood and tears into our work and then send it out to the world, often experiencing soul-crushing rejections.
And yet we persevere and keep going. Only further proving that we’re crazy.
Some of us talk to people no one else can see. Others have crazy maps all over their writing desk, (akin to Russell Crowe in A Beautiful Mind). Some may need to bang their heads against the wall from time to time.
Welcome to the insanity, friends. Pull up a chair in my nice padded room. If you’re cold I’ve got a nice jacket you can borrow, one with extra long sleeves.
It’s too late to turn back.

on the REALLY insane days, the querying/trying to get published part of the process seems like the MOST SANE part of the whole thing. 😛
Amalia- Holy cow! I feel like querying adds to the insanity. You must have some really insane days!
I love that poster!
Why turn back when the road ahead could be so interesting and intriguing?

…can I get a certificate for that? I'd like to hang that on my wall…or maybe frame it and prop it up on the desk when I'm writing!
Brilliant brilliant post. If only the voices in my head would go away!
It's true, we're crazy, but isn't that better than being bored? 🙂
I'm right there in the car with you!
*cue maniacal laughter now*
They're coming to take me away, haha, heehee, hoho… to the funny farm!
Heh — that's a great demotivator!
Yeah, it's kind of crazy. But we love it anyway.
No, don't go insane…just take a deep breath…and take it easy:)
This is a wonderful blog. 🙂
I keep it all on the inside… nothing to see here 🙂
Turning back would actually drive me even more insane. So I'll stay at Crazy-lite, thank you.
That's a really funny poster – and you're right. We are all a little insane. 🙂
My dad always used to say, "no one has more fun than us crazy people"… I think he was right 🙂
Stephanie – you really post the most inspiring things!
I was just wondering (again) this weekend if I was crazy or not. And everyone is right, we crazy people do tend to gravitate towards each other!
Brother, did you nail that on the head. Thanks for the inspiring thoughts.
Awesome post! We are all crazy, aren't we? 😉
Oh, I've been looking for a jacket like that! I'll be right over. He he. 🙂
wow your thres is awesome …. and this post is so great…
Great Post Stephanie! Love this craziness.
It's so nice to know I'm in the looney bin with lots of fellow crazies.
