Random Appetites: Literary Libations

This is the first November in a number of years where I am not struggling for word count each evening or spending every Saturday at one local Library or another hosting write-ins, otherwise known as participating in (and acting as Municipal Liaison for) NaNoWriMo rubinrot herunterladen. I must say, the freedom is glorious.

Granted, I haven’t abandoned my literary pursuits, I’ve merely refined them a bit. But I feel tremendous sympathy for those who _are_ participating this year, which brings us to today’s Random Appetites icloud downloaden op laptop.

It is a long-standing stereotype that writers are also drinkers: the more “important” the work, the more heavy the drink. Or so it would seem avery zweckform etiketten herunterladen. I actually avoid alcohol if I’m trying to get something done, but will occasionally imbibe when a deadline is met.

One of my favorite books on writers and cocktails (and I think I’ve linked to it before) is Hemingway & Bailey’s Bartending Guide to Great American Writers herunterladen. Including quotes, brief biographies, excerpts and recipes it really is a must for the enthusiast of both writers and mixologists.

Speaking of writers, those who know me will not be surprised to find that I adore what I know of Dorothy Parker, she of the razor sharp wit and a healthy dose of snark gratis powerpoint präsentation herunterladen. My fondness for her work grew when I found this little gem:

I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I’m under the table,
after four I’m under my host usenext software herunterladen.

Doesn’t that sound like the perfect quote for me?

Some days you only think you know how you’re going to fix a situation. I was really prepared to not renew my contract when it was up in November because the amount of time I put into the articles was no where near commensurate with the fee they paid me free mp3 music without registration. Of course, one call from our new Expert-wrangler changed all of that: instead of stopping writing, I more than doubled my article count per month and, instead, scaled back (drastically) my SCA involvement and any other non-writing or comics pursuits.  And I couldn’t be happier 🙂

Paid! Writer! Me!

It really was a pretty awesome feeling to get that first check for writing. Granted, it wasn’t quite the rush that I got with that first feedback email from the editor with nothing by praise herunterladen. That was a major happy-dance in my chair moment. You know what I’m talking about, right? The silent party that, if witnessed, would get you sent straight to the loony bin for fits 7 days to die download kostenlos deutsch. But the check was a pretty cool second feeling. Sure, it was only $30 because it was the per-article fee structure (not my current rate, I assure you) and only for one article the previous month but it rocked all the same wordpad kostenlos downloaden deutsch. Now when the checks come, a year later, I’m all ‘Cool, into the savings account [part of*] you go[es], glad it showed up on time.’ I’m so over the giddiness, just another jaded writer, accepting the ducats as my due for brilliance music download for car. Pffft! No, it’s still cool, it’s just not _as_ cool.
