Top 10 Ways to Be an Ornery Author

It seems like authors have been stereotyped (apologies to those who handwrite their drafts... make that stereowritten). If you're feeling ornery about that, here are some tips to help...
  1. Don't be a self-proclaimed coffee addict. (Come on, water fans!!)
  2. Write something in a genre no one else is.
  3. Write a happy story.
  4. Try to avoid words like "dreamer" and "scribbling" in your bio. (Everybody uses those!)
  5. Admit that washing dishes is part of your life...
...Read the rest at!


  1. Bwahaha! "Admit that washing dishes is part of your life". Sadly, yes. :)

    1. I know. An unfortunate reality. ;) Although I do find it a great time for thinking about plots and stuff...

    2. Oh, yes! That's the only good thing about washing dishes. :D

  2. Hehe, this was good. I especially like the happy one. I love writing happy things. I will write serious and sad things, but only if they have happiness somewhere in them.
