Writing From Spite

Have you ever written a guest post and thought, “Hey, maybe I shouldn’t have been quite that honest?”

Yeah, me too. Recently, actually. 😉

Hop on over to my friend (and excellent writer) Samantha Clark’s blog to read my overshare about Process.

And, for the record, I don’t just write for spite. I also write for my kids, the glory of the written word, the elusive possibility of attaining a literary sort of immortality… and money. Gotta love money.

Have a great week! (And thanks to Samantha for asking me to share!)

  1. hahaha There’s no such thing as being too honest, Nikki. But writing for all these other reasons are givens, I think. And, of course, because we love it.

    Have fun in New Mexico.

      Thanks, S! I am having fun – and one sweet day of Internet access before the writing begins… hope you haven’t melted in Texas!


  2. Um, no… sadly, I’m not popular enough to be invited to guest post. Its tragic, really ( ;

    But I DO know what its like being too honest on social networking sites. Usually I get smart and pull it down really quick, lest anyone discover that my maturity level is that of a junior high student. But I suppose that method of self damage control doesn’t work in the case of guest posting, eh?

      Julie, you will be someday! I don’t think I embarrassed myself too badly in retrospect. Well, not any more than I usually do. ;P


  3. N,

    What can I say? You make me laugh. 😉
