“Tude-torial #5

~ By D.D. Scott

For today’s Chick Lit “It’s all about the attitude” ‘Tude-torial, I’m Goin’ Babbitt!

That’s right…as in Sinclair Lewis’ famous 1920’s satirical character George Babbitt.

***Note the rather Chick Lit-esque cover art?!  How’s that for some fun stuff?!***

So why Babbitt?

Well…let’s face it…

Just like Sinclair Lewis said in one of my favorite Bitchy Quotes:

“It is impossible to discourage real writers – they don’t give a damn what you say, they’re going to write.”

And after all, it is the launch of NaNoWriMo 2010 so all you NaNoWriMo chicks and chuckies best be pullin’ a Lewis and bankin’ on your dreams that you’re a Lewis-style “real writer”…right?!

Here’s the thing…

Sometimes you’ve got to be your very own Babbitt…in that you’re shouting to the world, and not giving a rat’s ass whether or not anyone hears you, you’re shouting ‘cause you feel like it and your shouting “Screw conformity.  Screw “the norm”! I’m a real writer!  Hear me roar…across my keyboard!”

So play with your muses.  Create your own kinda Wonderful Life on your pages.  Roar, Babbitts!  Roar!

Even Babbitt – who played and got burned – knew at the end of his jaunt that he was much better off for having had the courage to buck the norm and go for his dreams.  Even after his personal and professional and social fires were out, he then understood how to love and support those people whose fires were just beginning or kindling into big ‘ole five-alarmers!

It’s all about having the courage to Babbitt-it-for-a-bit ‘til you find that magic balance between your personal life and your writing life.

You can do it!

And we’re all here cheering you on!

Take a walk on the wild-side…start to live and work like a full-time writer!

  1. Not familiar with this Babbitt guy, but after your exhortation, I’m intrigued.
    So, unless it would be a ‘spoiler’ can you reveal what his wife’s reaction was to his wandering babbitt?

  2. I don’t know how you come up with all of your blogs, but they are so fun & interesting to read! I liked your “bitchy” quote for today.
