Everyone I knew was waiting on a queue

Abs
There's only one book I want to read and I would trade all other future books (maybe even the Harry Potter Encyclopedia) for this.

Heather Anne Hogan needs to write a book and I will not rest until it's in our hands.

Fourthed!

Fifthed! (Awkward.)

Sixthed! (even more awkward.)

Jamie said...

Seventhed? Yep.

Kiti said...

But of course, I add my voice to the clamor. And volunteer to be a beta reader.

I left a comment, it didnt go?! ?
Nineth?!
I agree, Amen, here here, concurred.

I'll be a beta reader, I'll even read each and every discarded piece and every rough draft :)

I'm still hoping for "Nothing for Christmas" :)

You guys are sweet, but if we're all being honest with ourselves, everyone who writes this blog and comments on this blog should be writing a book. We have some of the cleverest, brightest, most talented people in the world at this Collective. True facts, friends. True facts.

Ashley said...

Um, here's a crazy idea . . . why don't we all write a book . . . TOGETHER?

Jennie said...

OK, I'm intrigued. Like, a novel? Or like a book of essays/blog posts?

me said...

..or we'll let Heather!Anne! write the "best book ever', and we'll all be writers of the short snippets the precede a book..and we can rave about whats inside or H!A! :)

Amen. Get thee to a writery, Heather Anne Hogan!

linster said...

Heather, you know what Abigail tells you is truth. Write the book.

Heather Anne said...

We really should write a book together; I was thinking about that today.

Ashley said...

I don't know. Maybe we could write a book called 'Dear Old People, The Internet Isn't Scary' By People Who Haven't Been Axe Murdered.

Whenever I talk about you guys, my sister and mother act like I'm going to be savaged in my home with a machete.

Make yourself necessary to someone..................................................................

"Make yourself necessary to someone..." Like, YOUR MOM, MAYBE? Hahaha! *ahem* Forgive me, I've been up since about 4 am.

Anyway, clearly, we need TWO books written (two books are better than one, because who doesn't love books?): 1. Heather Anne will write her memoir, and Collective members will get to be beta readers and then receive advance copies. 2. We all write our own life stories or essays, and send them to another person to read and critique, and receive another person's to read and critique (constructively), and then publish those in a huge volume. You know, similar to NaNoWriMo, but it would be National Memoir Writing Month. Surely I can't be the only one who looks forward to reading through everybody's adventures and memories!
