This just in: Bipolar is the new normal

According to the comments on the last post (which I really appreciated, btw), it's completely natural to be slightly schizophrenic/bipolar when trying to write a novel.

Okay, so there were only 5 of us in agreement, but that's a whole 100% of 5 people, and those are some hard numbers to argue with.

Hey, don't look at me - I just report the facts.

Now, if there are people who read this blog who are not experiencing the same symptoms as the rest of us, it's okay. You're just not a writer. Or, if you are a writer, the rest of us would like to know if you're taking some sort of supplement to make you behave in a way that's more conducive to life in the non-fiction world.

So good luck to all my writing-induced bipolar/schizophrenic friends out there. No worries - there's safety in numbers, and we CAN make it through to the end* of the project!


*Just don't go around shouting "The end is near! The end is near!", or people will really think you're unstable.

Yep, we **can**...I'm just finding blogging a seriously fun past-time while my WIP simmers in the back of my mind for awhile. Ahhh, so much to write, so little time.

We need to make t-shirts or something,so when we're having a moment to people will know that it's a writer thing.
