The Life of a Writer

It's not everyday that I receive an email with a YouTube video recommendation from our esteemed publisher Bob Fryling. However, this morning my editorial colleagues and I received the following note: "I thought you would enjoy this rather entertaining YouTube explanation of being an author from a British novelist named Roger N. Morris. There are four parts but the first part is the best."

You may note in this brief message that he kindly previewed all four segments so that his employees would not have to expend their time doing so. However, I must confess that I did venture to segment two. I thought it was very amusing as well, as it points out the very common obssession of writers: checking Amazon frequently (daily, hourly) to see how their book ranks. This is a crazy-making exercise to say the list. (See the recent blog post in Andy Unedited for more on Amazon sales rankings.)

Check out the videos--and let us know if you decide to post your own!
