Okay so I'm done flailing enough to actually write a coherent post.

Four very long (to me) weeks ago, I submitted a short story to Less Than Three Press. AND THEY ACCEPTED IT! My very first contract~. I'm so excited that I even made a ~professional~ twitter!

It's @JColbyJack. :3

On top of all that, it's my birthday this weekend and I'll get to stuff myself with cake and food at my parents' place. Plus the Vera Bradley bag I bought as a gift to myself came today as well!

So much awesome all around!

What up!

So, exciting times, yes? Eleven days until vacation, I started yoga and didn't die (at least not that I'm aware of), and it's my wonderful [personal profile] telltale_commas' birthday today! Just don't remind her that she's getting old. Because then she'll remind me that I'll always be older. And it's terrible when a grown woman cries.

In the vein of birthday givings, I'm not only hosting a lovely interview from A. about how to tell if you've contracted the deadly disease of writitis, but I'm also a stop on her scavenger hunt! Woo~! And with no further ado (and not yet an adieu), here we go!

5 Signs You Might Be A Writer

  • You are a procrastinator

    Not just a run of the mill "I'll do it tomorrow" kind of procrastinator. The kind that has a final project that makes up 50% of your grade for that class you need to graduate, or that important report you need to keep your job, and you start it two days before it's due and finish it with twenty minutes to spare.

  • People compliment you on your vocabulary

    You constantly help others explain themselves more eloquently. It's not something you can help, you're just trying to understand them better. Bonus points if you still find yourself frequenting thesaurus.com.

  • You can name at least three words you absolutely hate seeing in print off the top of your head

    The word "quintessential" still sends me into a frothing rage...

  • You come across an interesting or funny name and write it down for future reference

    Let's be honest, you're not saving it for your future children. "Lionsworthe" should belong to a stuffy professor or an old lawyer, anyway. Or a butler.

  • You can think up way better endings to movies or TV series

    You also often do. Hello, fanfiction!

  • If you suffer from three or more of these chronic symptoms, seek immediate literary attention. There is currently no known cure--however, some experts have observed that criticism, constructive or otherwise, can slow its processes. Left untreated, it may lead to long and arduous editorial reviews.

    James is at the end of a long crusade for vengeance against the vampire clan that destroyed everything he held dear. He has Ren, the final and most dangerous of them all, cornered at last in London. But victory remains just out of reach when Ren sets a feral vampire on James and makes his escape. With no other leads, James is forced to take in the feral until he can use its connection to its sire to track down Ren. But in caring for the vampire, James sees they might not all be the monsters he thought them to be. Faced with an ugly truth, his quest for revenge becomes a war for retribution, and the discovery of what it truly means to be human.
