Blind links

When I post links here on NRJW, I'm usually pretty careful to tell you where they will take you. Well, not today. You're just going to have to trust me.

Writers, don't click here unless you have a black sense of humor.

Don't click here if you are hoping to publish a volume of poetry. (This post darn near made me cry, and I'm not even a poet.)

If you click here, be sure to leave a comment telling everyone here at NRJW if this is a good idea or not.


And finally, authors looking for ideas on book promotion will find this video hilarious. (The flashing screen was horribly annoying, but maybe that's just because I've had a migraine today.)

Best line: "YouTube. Of course. 'Cause you know, that's the dream, right? Twenty years ago when I wanted to become a writer? A big part of that dream was being able to put little videos on the internet. That's...I mean, that's it. That's why we do this."

Second-best line: "I am smiling."

Yeah. Me, too.

MgO (magnesium oxide) may take care of your migraines. Take a 250 mg tablet before each meal and a bedtime snack.

Brenda Coulter said...

Aww. Thanks for thinking of me, Julana.

I do take prescription medication for the migraines.

So...did you watch that video? I thought all of my writer friends would love it, but nobody's commented on it yet.

The video was hysterical, Brenda!! Really hit home since my first book just came out three months ago and the angst is still fresh. :)

I'll check the other links now, too. :) Thanks for sharing. :)

Brenda, I'm impressed that you're savvy enough to post the video. I loved it! The release of my debut book is four months away and I sure relate to this guy. Any clue why people ask about Oprah picking up our books? LOL

Hi, Missy and Janet.

I have no idea why people ask about Oprah. But it's like the guy in the video says, if an author is going to be on Oprah, you won't have to ask. She'll tell you. And the rest of the world. Sheesh.

I just couldn't help laughing! Only another writer could really enjoy his frustration. So funny!

Loved the video - so funny.
