  1. Ah, the timing on that post was perfect....

    Um, yes. Yes, I fear for my sanity sometimes. When I feel down, I just tell myself that doing something I love - even if it isn't for money - is better than the alternative.

    And I take breaks. I play music. I practice. Then I come back and write some more. :)

  2. I remind myself of the fact that life just sucks without writing. And I'll still feel that way even if I never get published.

    Besides, who said sanity was the way to go?

  3. I loved the SVH and Babysitters Club back then:)

  4. Yes.

    Was I supposed to say more than that?
