Ah, I so relate...with the hamster wheel one too.

I'll eventually capture Joe in the purple beret! He's a good sport.

I love these excuses. It would be an all day project to alphabetize my rejection letters.

anne frasier said...

bogging has become my number 1 excuse. i want to blog all day rather than write.

Eric said...

Dear friend, I want to tell you something, please come to my journal

Heather Dawn Harper said...

lol.

I would have to actually submit something to receive on of those puppies.

Kelly Parra said...

Too cute! Hey, pubbed authors get rejections too. =D

Sam said...

Ha!!!
That's a good one.
Silly woman - putting them in a file. You're supposed to paper your bathroom walls with them...

What is gmail?

Joely Sue Burkhart said...

Oh, dear, sounds tempting! *g*

Heather: I'm with you on that one.
Kelly: I know. It doesn't get any easier. We writers are a masochistic lot.
Sam: I use all my discarded first chapters for wallpaper. Gmail is google's server-side email program. It is still beta so "not anyone" can have an account. I hate being left out.
Joely: Just wait, there's 99 more excuses coming!
Prego: OMG!! How cute are they! And, what a *sweet* response. I couldn't think of a better reason not to write.

This isnt funny. I have done this! Its much easier than color coding them!

Bren said...

That's hilarious. Isn't it funny how we have to come up with reasons not to write. I'm getting better at realizing that I'm procrastinating, then I force myself to sit down and do it.

Dana Pollard said...

This could so be me. lol

Kate R said...

Sam's right. They make fabu wall paper (make a copy first for tax purposes)

Nienke said...

You guys make me laugh!
