One of the perks about being writerly is that your friends send you cool things about writerly folks. Two such bestie friends sent the UW two such things this week.
Cool thing #1:
The UW's friend Dave Mawhinney sent her the trailer for this kick ass looking documentary about bad writing, entitled "Bad Writing." See the trailer here:
The UW's favorite quote from the trailer: "There's no rule that says you get steadily better."- Margaret Atwood
Cool thing #2:
The UW's friend Tracy Mendoza sent along this awesome article, a peek into the day of an unemployed writer. After which, the UW thanked all higher beings that she has a wonderful day job.
Also, in searching the wide and wacky world of the interwebs (and passing it off as researching what publications she will submit her work of art-ish to) the UW stumbled across this gem:
No, she is not crazy enough to be submitting her rinky dink tale to the holy grail of short fiction (the UW only applies "go big or go home" to the square footage of pizza she chooses to order from the 'Hut'), but it is interesting to peek behind the curtain and how and why they make their selections.
