Steph is reading a different book every night at her pace...unless she's busy writing February 5, 2013 - 12:34pm

Hey! I'm not a paying member yet, but I am thinking I will start after Mandy's YA class ends. I figured I'd drop in and say hi.

Two reasons I shouldn't actually be posting right now are: 1. I decided my entire MS needs such a serious revision, it's more a rewrite than anything else. I came to that conclusion last week. (It only hurt a little bit, I'm good at writerly pain.) I want to use that MS for the class, which means I really should write every moment I'm not working, which brings me to point 2. I may or may not be at work at present. 

Anyway, hi! 


PS: Courtney, if you read this: 5000 brownie points to you for the introductions post. Cool stuff, and very helpful. :)

Don't let your probability wave packet collapse.

Welcome to the Pit ... the Lit. I probably meant the Lit.

Creepy post warning: Is there some rule that says only attractive women can join LitReactor? Not a complaint, merely a (sexist?) observation. As for the men, well, just look at us. [Sorry, ladies.]

Okay, where was I? Oh, yeah, welcome aboard.

Hi. I grew up in Switzerland. Therefore we were probably neighbors!

Aww, thanks for the brownie points! I came in to welcome you and now I feel all warm and fuzzy.

I'm taking Mandy's class, too! I'm looking forward to seeing you there, and hopefully seeing you in the workshop after. I usually workshop between semesters and don't spend as much time in there when school is around, but I'd suggest picking up the subscription after her class ends. It can quickly devour your time if you use it right, and I had the same realization about my own MS, so it would be too much of a battle between doing entire face-lifts of the manuscript and reading others' work.

@Gary Yeah, all the women of the world got together last month during our annual meeting and decided that, from now on, only pretty women could be writers. Those of us who were already here, like me and Hillary Clinton, are allowed to stay despite our aesthetic deficiencies because of the grandmother clause.

And that's where you'd be wrong, Courtney, you wouldn't need to be grandmothered in.
