About this blogfest:
On December 16th all of those taking part will re-post their favorite blog offering, or one that never received the exposure it should have. Then as the day unfolds and everyone hops from one blog to another, what they will be reading is the best of the best (as determined by you). That day the blogosphere will be chock full of past writing brilliance!
Hosted by Nicole Ducleroir at One Significant Moment at a Time, DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude, Katie Mills at Creepy Query Girl, and Lydia Kang at The Word is My Oyster.

5. You often fluctuate between ecstatic--as the new idea arrives in your head--and as frustrated as heck as you try to figure out what to do with the new idea.
6. You can occasionally be found talking aloud when the nearest living being is a plant.
7. You sometimes drift out of conversations to ponder the reasons behind one of the imaginary people or that new idea.
8. You go online and look up the sites of authors because you want to read their FAQs about the writing process and getting published.
9. You start analyzing the books you read and wonder how you would have done it better.
10. In the most severe cases, you actually start pouring forth words in quantities greater than that of a shopping list and create something with what's known as a plot.
If you can say you do more than three of the above, you have the Writing Syndrome.
There is no known cure. Unfortunately, the only words available are:
