i don't know if this video by YA author Jen Hayley has made it to your corner of the web or not, but i have Kristie Cook to thank for pointing it out on facebook. it's so true that it's either sad or funny. i'm not sure which. if you don't happen to be a writer, this is pretty much what it's like to write a novel, start to finish.
i do want to know one thing: when did she have time to put this together? i don't think i have that much spare time. maybe she did it by staying "off" of facebook.
