For my writer friends

I recently read a book called "The Odd Woman" by this author, Gail Godwin, and I enjoyed it so naturally I went looking to see what else she had written. I was delighted to discover that this book, The Making of a Writer: Journals 1961-1963 was available. When Gail Godwin was 24, she went abroad and lived for a couple of years in Copenhagen, London and a few other places and devoted herself to writing. For me, as both a journalist and hopeful author, this book really speaks to me - it contains a lot of the questionning and uncertaintity that comes with writing - but also a lot of the drive and passion necessary to get the job done. Besides the writing - it's quite amusing to read about her romantic exploits - I can hardly believe how much her journal entries sound like my own sometimes.

It's sad that you write such a passionate blog entry and the only response you get (not that any are expected, of course) is from a dude hawking porn. After I sign up for this porn (which I'm SURE really is free), I'm going to give 'abunnyinpink' a piece of my mind--the part not occupied with porn, that is...

This porn is your porn
This porn is my porn
This porn is your porn....
...no, wait it's my porn

Sorry to blatantly rip off Joey from Friends (the Hand Twin episode). But i felt the need to sing the praises of porn, dammit!

That dude is a douchebag. I want to spam the spammers.
