Love the part about Hemingway and Snooki! Carlie Lee April 4, 2013 @ 2:34 am Oh! Poor nephew. Forced to draw for mad uncle. Joanne Hus April 28, 2013 @ 12:26 pm This video should go viral. It is for everyone: aspiring writers, disaffected teenagers, slasher movie fans, expectant mothers, tenured faculty at Ivy League schools, second graders, vegetarians, electrical engineers, single parents, Canadians, and anyone with a dream. Thank you so much for posting. Now I know how to pitch my book, change the oil in my car, field dress a moose, mix the perfect Manhattan, and find the meaning of life. admin April 28, 2013 @ 1:56 pm Tee hee hee!!! Susan Orlins April 29, 2013 @ 12:52 pm Oh dear, I wish I didn’t recognize myself in this hilarious video! My mother and my daughters love my writing, which appeals to all ages, and although my book a memoir, you’ll learn how I rise above my anxiety, so in that sense it’s self-help. Unfortunately, I’m a slow, poor reader. But just imagine what a brilliant writer I would be (I’m already this good!) if I could read faster and read more! Susan Orlins author of the hilarious, heartbreaking, offbeat, relatable memoir, Confessions of a Worrywart: Husbands, Lovers, Mothers, and Others.
