Ryan was 19, and was home between semesters of college. He’d had a real difficult year while he was adjusting to school and being away from home, and his mom and I were doing everything we could to support him while he went through a challenging growth phase.

I had just bought this laser star projector from Think Geek, and I wanted to show...

You sir, are a wonderful human.

This is such a beautiful moment. So humbled that you shared

I love Eurotrash dance remixes, and I love 70s pop music. This YouTube channel combines those things in the very best way.

Pretty rad, dude. Thanks for the share!

love that
840 words (70782 total) on the rewrite of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.
And that is a completed first rewrite. I thought for sure I would have to do massive rewriting in the last 10K words, because I wrote them all in a single day, but they really (surprisingly) hold up!
I’m going to send my manuscript to a few close, trusted friends...

Awesome!
This is a reprint and expansion of today’s word count entry on my tumblr thing.
I had panic attacks all night long, last night. Each time I fell asleep, I woke up what felt like minutes later, in absolute terror. Like, imagine that you’re on an airplane and everything seems fine, and then it suddenly drops like 1000 feet. You know how you...

Sorry, that sucks. No similar experience, can't offer any practical advice, but hope you get some relief soon.

I've been having the same issues for about a year now.  Had to leave work because of them.  If you figure out how to make them go away, let me know.
The blog post that became a short story that became a novella that is almost a novel was an intense writing experience today. I had to write a scene that I’ve been dreading, that I know will have to be rewritten at least once, to get the tone and emotional punch exactly right.

This was an emotionally exhausting day, the most intense one I...

Imposter indeed. Your writing that I've seen has a magical, compelling quality that's very special, to say the least, and that YouTube piece about Shatner having been less than gracious is a masterpiece of wit, timing and nuance. I could go on but my conclusion is that you're the real deal, someone genuinely to be looked up to and be inspired by. Remember that I have no reason to dish out fabricated praise just to "be nice." For all anyone knows, being nice might be something I endure with great reluctance and only when the occasion absolutely demands it.
The blog post that became a short story that became a novella that is almost a novel was a lot of fun to work on today. I wrote a scene that needs to be inserted into the narrative like 15000 words ago, because I realized that it’s part of a narrative thread that needs more to happen, so that it can payoff a little...

I find it very, VERY hard to write outside of chronological order so props to you for making the leap!
bromopar:
Thanks for the advice.  That has been a hang up of mine as well for quite some time.
