So today on the radio I hear this funny segment about how people say crappy things about celebrities. The celebrities were reading the messages, and I almost ran off the road laughing.
So Kid Rock is reading this message someone left on twitter or somewhere that says, "Kid Rock looks like he smells like stale farts and cigarettes."
I've never been talked about quite that bad. It's actually a little reassuring that he can laugh at something so mean. I've been fortunate that in all the reviews I've received I've only gotten one really scathing one, but should I get any more - I will tell myself this:
At least I don't look like I'd smell like farts and cigarettes.
Thank you, Kid Rock, for having a great sense of humor. I adore this guy even more now.
People often have this misconception that as soon as your pen a novel and find someone to publish it that these magical paychecks start appearing in your mailbox. Unfortunately, this simply isn't true. At least, if it is, mine are missing.
This is me to the left. Answering the phone at my evil day job. I like that term, I stole it from the fabulous Pam Stack, but in all actuality, I don't feel that way about my "real" job at all. I kinda dig it most days. Plus it has this little thing called health insurance. Another thing being an author doesn't provide.
Now don't get me wrong, writing and getting published is pretty flipping fantastic. Signing books, getting emails from people and reading the good reviews cause this sense of rockstar-ness that is unexplainable. Unless of course you are a rockstar, then okay... so you get it.
As for the millions upon millions of dollars that you'd imagine a published author gets... do this. Go to Forbes.com. Look up say - oh, E.L. James. You know, the Fifty Shades lady. Figure out how many books she's sold and divide that by her net worth. You'll soon figure out a ten dollar bill doesn't fly into our wallets every time you buy our books. Granted, E.L. James isn't exactly broke, nor is J.K. Rowling, but those of us who don't have movie deals, action figures and all the such... we have real jobs.
I know, totally blows the whole image, huh?
