WordPress Academy Awards

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay. I’m always irritated by people who imply that writing fiction is an escape from reality. It is a plunge into reality and it’s very shocking to the system.” Flannery O’Connor, Mystery and Manners: Occasional Prose

So true. I’ve lost all the hair, as well as the teeth because of my second draft-edit. And I’m only half way thru. Sigh.

  1. The quote at the time reminds me of this one by George Orwell:

    “Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout with some painful illness. One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon whom one can neither resist nor understand.”

    It is hard work, but the end result is totally worth it.

  3. I like carrot ginger soup a lot but when it comes to pumpkin, I like curried pumpkin with jalapeño soup. That will warm your soul. Both at good for vatas, right?

    Speaking of which, I’ve gotta get that recipe online somewhere before I lose the paper one again. (I secretly store a lot of my favorite recipes on IG so I don’t lose them. 😂

    Great post. Congratulations on the awards and I loved reading your answers. 😊

    I think my dog might have some less-than-nice things to say if she could talk too. Maybe she’s just got a mood disorder. So hard to tell!

    • Both are good for vatas as u said…
      Aaaaa, all that talking about pumpkins just made me so hungry now and I’m already on the way to bed 😂
      Understand about recipes. I’m usually keep 5-7 fav books in the kitchen (with recipes), otherwise same – forgetting or losing. Smart idea with IG…
      Haha dog-mood-disorder 🙂 and the stubborn character! I’m sure they’d talk non stop about how awful we r (if they could lol).
      And thank u 💕💕🎉🤸‍♀️
