For today’s Chick Lit “It’s all about the attitude” ‘Tude-torial, I’m revealing one of my favorite tools in my Muse Arsenal.


Because let’s face it…

Sometimes as we write the books from our hearts we feel like shouting “This Book Is Fabulous” “I Am A Brilliant Writer”!

Other days, it’s more like this:

Or this:

In the above example, we’re the birds mating for life with our writing careers.  Flying into a window instead of battling brutal publishing industry winds isn’t far off base at all…is it?

If you’re like me, it doesn’t even take an entire day to drop from the highs to the lows.  I fly between extremes within a couple hours.  Okay.  Who am I kidding?  Let’s get real.  I can go from top to bottom in mere minutes.

Sounds like a writer’s life to me.

And a lifestyle that, despite its unhealthy propensities, many people aspire to try.

Check this out.

According to The New York Times, 80% of our population “wants” to write a book.  The U.S. Census reports that the United States’ population is now at 306 million people.  So that’s 245 million wanna-be novelists.

Lucky for us then, we’re not the only birds in the crazy tree.  Apparently, there are flocks of crazies trying to nest in our writing life maples…or oaks…or pines…you choose…it’s your life…your fabulous, but crazy tree.

So how do we handle these higher-than-high moments plus the devil-deep lows of our writing careers?

And how do we handle these issues with ‘Tude?

***Hint: Here’s where I reveal my Muse Arsenal tool***

I use the Bitchy Signs and Sayings like those I found in “A Writer’s Thought” Flip Chart by authors Ella James and Delilah Devlin.

I picked up this sweet gem at an RWA National Conference’s Moonlight Madness Bazaar.  (*Note:  The Bazaar itself is a treasure trove of fun and fabulous treats to pamper your muses and makes for a terrific MUSE THERAPY Trip!)

Here’s a peek at the mood-inspiring pages in the flip chart:

For more quirky fun writer’s life stuff and bitchy signs too, go to!

Accumulate and absorb these one-of-a-kind treats then trick your muses to put that kind of fabulous ‘Tude on your pages!
