Aspiring Author Nightmare

So, I dreamt the other day that I got an offer of representation for my manuscript.  But after the agent offered, I realized I had plagiarized the whole thing from a fellow aspiring author!  I got so scared that that aspiring author would find out and then everyone would know it wasn't my work.  And you know how you get towards the end of the dream, on the verge of waking up, where you tell yourself it's just a dream?  Well I was there- teetering back and forth for a bit- thinking, oh it's okay, it's just a dream...whew. But then, What if it's NOT??  Omg, I just copied someone else's work!  Oh wait...just a dream...whew.  But wait...until I woke up.  And thankfully...yep, just a dream.

In other news...I have a new baby!  Mini Monster is already a month old!  Wow, how time flies..So during my sleep deprived nightly feedings, I've discovered something that keeps me occupied...twitter!  Oh man, I'm already hooked.  I've got my iphone, with my sweet breastfeeding app counting the minutes, MM eating away, and I'm scrolling through twitter, totally mesmerized.  Makes the time go by faster.  But now it's starting to get a little ridiculous- I've got it up on my computer, which is with me on the couch while I recover from my c-section.  Which by-the-way, is taking a little longer than I thought.  And I can't.stop.refreshing.the.page.  But seriously, twitter is very beneficial to aspiring authors- there is some great stuff on there from authors and agents!  Plus I can stalk keep track of the agents that have my ms...just in case they want to tweet something awesome about it *crossing fingers*.

Ooh, and I totally signed up for Sara Megibow's 10 Queries in 10 Tweets webinar on July 17.  My first agent-run webinar and I'm really excited.  Okay, totally terrified.  But whatevs.  I'll get my query critiqued by an awesome agent- how can you go wrong there?  Totally worth the money.

Not much else going on here...just you know...baby stuff.  Little Monster is over the moon in love with her baby sister, which makes me very happy.

And I'll humor you with a picture- my rule is not to show faces of my kids, but I'll make an exception this one time.  Besides, I don't really have a rule against butts...



Alright, looks like it's time for Mini Monster to eat (again) so I'll catch ya over on twitter!

That's an awful dream.
And congratulations! I didn't know you'd just had a baby.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Wish Twitter had been around when I was nursing my kids. I ended up watching Lord of the Rings quite a few times with my second child (we didn't have cable back then). :)

Colene Murphy said...

EEEE!! She's so precious.

Glad it was just a dream! And Glad to see you back around! (though I haven't missed you at all thanks to the magic of email and my inability to live life without emailing you first anymore...okay...maybe not THAT bad. ;)

Meredith said...

Aw, what a cutie pie!!! How adorable! Good luck recovering and with the agent contest--sounds fun!

Kristin Rae said...

PRECIOUS!!

Twitter is super addictive. I go in spurts with it. And Sara Megibow is so sweet. She had my partial for a little while but then said no very nicely with a personal note, so I appreciated that.

Hope your recovery speeds up!

Candyland said...

I've had similar dreams like "what if that totally cool book I read crept into my innards and I've totally re-written that story.

Also, I want to eat your baby's face. She's gorgeous.

Jennie Bailey said...

Blogger ate my comment!

To sum up - can't belive it's been a month, your photographer rocks and makes me want to move to your city so that I can use her, writer dreams are trippy and I've had a few...now I'm going to chase you down on Twitter. ;)

Heather said...

Aw, she's beyond adorable! And I love that she's in love with her big sister is totally in love with her. How sweet!

Jess (sis) said...

You're making it awfully hard to resist joining twitter... :)

The Golden Eagle said...

She's so cute!

That sounds like a scary dream. It would be awful to be accused of plagiarism.

Donna Hosie said...

Many congratulations!

I've never had a dream about an agent, but my husband - who has no interest whatsoever in publishing - has! Go figure.

Talli Roland said...

OMG, I am *dying* at the cute photo! Ah! Congratulations!

I love Twitter, too.

alexia said...

What an adorable pic!! Congrats!

I had a dream once that I got the perfect agent... and then I woke up. It sucked so bad (the waking up part).

erica and christy said...

Aww, I can't believe she's over a month old already! Thanks for posting the cute butt pic. :)

erica and christy said...

AAAAAADORABLE!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I've been nursing our third bebe for 6 mos now and I think I spent the first month on twitter also. But after that I hooked up with my kindle and have been reading like mad! The writing, not so much, but I've read many, many books around the clock. So, now I'm still nursing every three hours...just to, ah, read. (Don't tell my husband.) (Somehow my little guy is still on 4 percentile for weight though, same as his big brothers. Sigh.) christy

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Oh the imposter complex LOL! Neil Gaiman mentions that in his awesome speech.
Congrats on your baby. How wonderful! x

David P. King said...

Now THAT is a trippy dream. I had one recently that unsettled me, but not on a plagiaristic level. :)
