Standing in the Shadow of Success
THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR WHEN ALL YOUR FRIENDS HAVE BOOK DEALS AND YOU DON’T:
1. Early reads. That’s right bitches. I read it when it was a draft!
2. Looking cool at parties. Oh hey, nice book. Check the acknowledgements for my name. (Because I know all of you go to parties where the main theme is reading.)
3. Feeling like a Twitter rock star when your famous friend replies to your tweet. #BFF #WriterFriends #IKnewHerWhen
7. Movies. Did you hear my BFF’s book was optioned for film? What are you doing with your life?
8. Friend critiques. Like, I know you’re famous and everything, but will you please take a look at this?
10. Being in the “in” crowd. Just think, once you finally get that book deal, you’ll already know EVERYONE in the biz.
