I would just like to start this post by saying I don't watch Jersey Shore, but even though I don't watch it, I know who Snooki is. Well this week as I was surfing through the Entertainment Weekly website, I came across this story.
Basically, Snooki wrote a book and it is now number 24 on the NY Times bestsellers list. Now I know I shouldn't judge and I haven't read the book, but really. . . I mean really.
Anyway, I guess there is some hope to gain from this. Like the article said: Congratulations, Shnookums: You’re a true inspiration to writers everywhere, because if you can publish a successful book, anyone can.
Hopefully we all don't have to go on a reality show to do it. On the other hand, maybe we should create our own writer reality series.
I heard someone suggest once that you could put five writers on a bus and have them drive around the country together on a book tour, wait that would mean we need a published book. Any other ideas?
On a different note:
Last week's goals: Finish chapter 8 and write chapter 9 and send four queries.
Result: I finished chapter 8, started chapter 9, sent one query.
This week: Don't eat peanut butter on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Write draft of chapter 9 and send the three queries I didn't send last week.
