How Strong is Your Hold on Reality?

Okay writers, we knew you were weird. We’ve seen  you stalk pedestrians with notebook and pencil in hand, lurking in the shadows to catch those dialogue nuggets, facial expressions, and major blow-ups you need to craft into your story. We’ve caught glimpses of those emails coming in and know you’ve subscribed to every newsletter from the effects of toe-nail fungus to how to poison your best friend’s friend and get away with it. Research? Sure. Along with those mammoth skulls tucked in your office desk drawer, pictures plastered across your walls, and rapidly scribbled jibberish you call notes tacked to every surface.

And you thought you were the only one suffering from creativity-infused insanity. I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone. And there is help.

Well, not help so much as a cyber-support group. Join us on Novel Rocket here as a few of my favorite authors share their frequent reality slips.
