Nearly two years ago, I wrote a post called A Writer’s Life as told by Joey Tribbiani from the hit TV show Friends. About nine months later, I did another one called A Writer’s Life as told by Ross Geller, and a few months after that, I did A Writer’s Life as told by Chandler Bing. They were so much fun to put together, that of course, I couldn’t let the boys have all the fun. So I asked and you answered. Which Friend should I do next?
The votes are in and Phoebe Buffay was the winner, so . . .
When you think of an amazing plot twist . . .
When you’re trying to come up with a good sex scene . . .
When you’re trying to get past your writer’s block . . .
And then when your author friends brag about good writing days while you have writer’s block . . .
When your character does something you didn’t plan on . . . and it’s not good . . .
When someone asks you if your novel is done and it’s not . . .
When you first open up the notes from your editor . . .
And you read through them . . .
Only to discover that your editor wants you to make changes that cause massive rewrites . . .
When someone asks you how your edits are going . . .
When you finally finish those massive rewrites . . . and go out to celebrate drinking . . .
And dancing . . .
When you get a rejection letter from a publisher or agent . . .
And they say that they can’t market or sell your novel . . .
When someone asks you what you’re going to do next . . .
But in the end, you decide all you can do is keep moving forward . . .
