Coming Soon: Miss Writerly Crankypants, the Blog

Writing Tip for Today: It was only a joke, but the more I think about it, the more I think the blogosphere needs a Miss Crankypants. Some days I just don’t feel as grateful as I should, like when the 150th agent rejects my work, or when the stupid Word 07/10 program gets the best of me. There must be other writers out there who are frustrated too–not blow-up-the-world mad, but irritated, aggravated or nettled in a thousand small ways.
Writers, book lovers, authors, editors, reviewers and yes even agents should have a good place to whine. So I really am going to start my 2nd blog, a kind of evil twin who needs to complain to someone who understands. The rules will be simple: We will assume that under all the carping are very thankful and humble writers who know life is not fair and are willing to say what everyone thinks.
You can suggest topics that have been overlooked or just be content to ride the coattails of my occasional discontent with my writing life. My first topic ought to involve the 134th follower who dropped this blog and now I’m left to wonder why I am only worthy of 133 followers. Hop on over to satisfy your morbid curiosity and get a load of Miss Writerly Crankypants: I gripe so you don’t have to.
