What Kind of Author Will You Be? (and more)

So I'm totally cheating today because I'm knee deep in critiquing and revising (because um, I started querying and I got some requests and now I'm freaking out. OMG.)

Anyhoo, if you're not following Veronica Roth's blog you totally should be. Today I'm going to share with you her latest post Equal Opportunity Preparation because it's awesome and she says a lot of things I would love to say, so much better than I could say them. So go check it out!

Also I'm typing up this post from my very own brand new 13" Macbook Pro! This is take two with the Macbook since the first one I ordered from the Apple Store arrived the day the new Macbooks were released. To say I was a little upset about this would be an understatement. Fortunately Apple was kind enough to allow me to return my Macbook - at my own expense - and then take over two weeks to refund the money so that I could buy another much better one! Ah, Apple, so thoughtful!

This is my dedicated writing computer. Scrivener you better be worth it! It's small enough that I can take it anywhere and I'm not going to put anything but writing software on it so that I don't get distracted doing other things. Wish me luck!

Any Mac users have any tips for me? It's all new to me, I'm still getting used to it. (Not to mention my eyes are adjusting to coming down from my 19" monitor!) I wish I could have widgets/gadgets on my desktop. Is this possible?


  1. Congrats on the new Mac! I know nothing about them, but I love my 10" PC. Took me a while to get used to the small screen and tiny keypad though. But now I can't stand to use the larger one.

  2. That's great you are getting responses to your queries! Woohoo! I will check out that blog you mentioned. Also, what is the Scrivener I keep hearing about? I guess I better check that one out too.

  3. Thanks Margo! Scrivener is supposed to be this amazing organizational software for writing. I'm really looking forward to trying it out. It's only available for Macs.

  4. Congrats on the Mac - I use my PC for blogging, email, etc. but use my Mac for writing only. Let me know how you like Scrivener. I haven't tried it yet. Good luck w/ the query process!

  5. We became Mac converts last year and we love it. Mine is a desktop, and I only know how to do the basics. One thing we've learned? Whatever it is you want to do, think of the easiest way, and that's probably how it's done. My 13 year old son is an expert though, of course. Best of luck!
