Yes - lol......of course not!

It's amazing that I get anything done at all - I feel like William Shakespear and Charles Dickens one day and then feel a total loser the next! I think it is the nature of our craft to be full of loathing and self doubt quickly followed by invincibility and flowing prose!

I think writing is the artistic version of being bi-polar!

Well, that's kind of funny because I actually am bipolar...

No, don't worry, you didn't. I think it just means I picked the write profession. :D
