It's Okay To....


Eat one too many pieces of chocolate...if there is such a thing

Love what you write today and abhor it tomorrow

Skip the gym and opt for some reality television instead

Reward yourself for every little accomplishment

Consistently refresh your e-mail just in case you hear back about that query letter

Pick up a tabloid at the check out counter...then covertly shove it into your shopping cart

Feel disappointment for things that did not go the way you planned

Fall just a little short of your word count goal

Become giddy (and inquisitive) when a past crush adds you on Facebook

Read so many author blogs that you forget to write

  6. Oh my goodness, I've committed so many of these crimes. Now I have permission to stop berating myself. Reality TV, blogging, and loving/abhoring my writing - here I come!

  11. As long as I have permission, sure I might do some of these things. I'm not a big fan of reality TV, so I'll have to skip that one. :)
