Don't Let This Happen To You

“Writing a novel is a terrible experience, during which the hair often falls out and the teeth decay.”
~ Flannery O'Connor



Don't end up like that guy. Enjoy your weekend and make time for a little rest and relaxation.
Oh, and don't forget to floss!

Have a great weekend!

This photo shows me I'm not trying hard enough :)

Robyn Campbell said...

Bff, take two points away from POSSESSION entry. I forgot to tweet and FB yesterday. (That's what I get for staying in bed all day.) I'm doing it right now, before I forget again. Oh, and that guy?? ARGH. I don't want to be him, but I've had ENOUGH R & R to last me awhile. YIKES!

You're cool amigo.

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

Ok, I totally feel like that guy this morning! LOL

I'm celebrating your Nicetude today on my blog! :)

Stephen Tremp said...

That's a great quote. I'll be sure to enjoy my weekend so I don't end up like the guy in the picture.

Laura Marcella said...

YIKES! And I thought rejection was the worst thing. ;)

Heather said...

That quote is kind of how I feel as I am neck deep in editing right now! LOL! Thank you for reminding me to floss. ;)

Shari said...

Oh my. If I'm going to end up looking like him, I may have to rethink this whole writing thing. At least I flossed today.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Shannon .. might keep the flossing down .. if my teeth fall out with it - but couldn't agree more .. take a little time for us ..

Cheers Hilary

Mary Aalgaard said...

Great quote and photo. I am planning on a little R&R this weekend.

Solvang Sherrie said...

Omigosh, that photo! I'm not sure whether to laugh or groan in pain :P

Candyland said...

What if I already look like that? There's a reason I don't show my face:)

VR Barkowski said...

Despite being a devoted flosser, that picture embodies exactly how I feel right now. LOL.

Have a great weekend, Shannon!

Jessie Oliveros said...

Oh come on, you think that writers have time to floss? Very funny:)

Robyn Campbell said...

I blogged and sidebarred (Is that even a word?) POSSESSION contest.

The Golden Eagle said...

Flossed. :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Angela Ackerman said...

Haha, you are awesome, Shannon! We're heading to Arizona for a week, so three cheers for relaxation!

Oh my gosh! I had been losing hair like crazy, but I think it's finally slowed down! Whew!

Jemi Fraser said...

Yikes! Off to get some fresh air... :)

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Haha!! I'll take my chances!

Have a great weekend, Shannon!

Kelly Lyman said...

Ha! Thanks for the laugh. Now I'm going to have nightmares about what I'm going to look like after this revision!! :)

Karen Akins said...

Ick! But great quote.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Yeah, I don't want to look like him. I'm hoping to get some writing in between the fun. Have a great weekend.

Myrna Foster said...

Is that why my hair is so much thinner than it was a year ago?

Have you read any of her novels or short stories. They tend to be violent and rather disturbing but brilliant.

Kari Marie said...

Oh Geez. I'm afraid it's too late for me. My hair is already falling out.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I'm having a great one Shannon...It's a no rules weekend at my house. Sleeping late, wearing pjs all day and eating pizza for all meals. (wink) I hope you are having a good one too.
