More fun than rewrites

Back when I wrote my dissertation in the late 1990s, internet access was slow and deliberate. A person who wanted to surf the web or even send an email had to dial in on a phone line. Pictures loaded ... inch ... by ... inch ... so ... slowly ...that ... they ... sucked ... your ... will ... to ... live.

I don't know how people ever finish long, boring research projects like dissertations anymore. There's too much fun stuff online these days.

I love writing. I've had days when my husband has watched the kids and about 10,000 words of a first draft have poured from me. These splendiferous moments are rare, but the feeling is sublime. If I didn't love writing so much, I'd never be able to complete a book.

Not with great sites like these online:

Thanks for the links, Carrie and Al.

Enjoy! And no, I'm not trying to distract the other writers out there from the Amazon contest that opened today:

Does anyone else see the similarities to American Idol?
