Writing a novel

A Writers Life as told by Joey Tribbiani #writing #amwriting #author #writerslife

As writers we go through an array of emotions…and these can be said best by the one and only, Joey Tribbiani…

Since posting this, I have also done A Writer’s Life as told by Chandler Bing and A Writer’s Life as told by Ross Geller. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

  1. As someone who used to adore Friends and no longer gets enough of it in his life, as well as a “tortured” writer… I feel this post on so many levels. You have made me very happy today. XD

    1. Thanks for stopping by Kaine! I miss the show so much, but I have all the seasons on DVD. It’s always fun to have a marathon one weekend. By so many requests, I will have “A Writer’s life as told by Ross Gellar” posting around the end of September. 🙂
