What Writing is REALLY Like

I made a new vlog over the weekend... hooray!

This one compares what people think writing looks like, and what writing actually looks like. I'm not trying to be pessimistic, just funny.

I hope I'm funny.

It's kinda quiet, so you might need to turn up your volume. Or I might need to talk louder next time. Either way.



Apparently when I'm a fancy writer I have an odd accent and an annoying laugh. Oh well.

Also, changed my profile pic. What do you think? Is this one better than the last one I had (besides the fact that I really need a tan)?

GLEE and Lewis Carroll and awesomeness! Nice job, Mariah, I'd like to see a lot more of this, when you're not writing, of course.

I know, I know! Do a how-to vlog on How-to Vlog. Like you did for the book trailer, but a vlog. Yay!

You are toooo funny!

Wow! I'm surprised everyone likes this vlog! I'll try to make another one soonish, maybe a how-to-vlog, like Jon suggested.

Very awesome! I'd expect nothing less from you :)

And now I have a sudden craving for peanut butter...

Love this vlog! Obviously, my Life As A Writer totally resembles example 1. Posh accent, Oprah calling, hot interns whose names sounds like DorMyanPosling.

Also, your new picture rocks!

That was hilarious! And dead-on.

The new picture is lovely, but then, I never saw the old one...

That may be the best writing vlog I've ever seen. And you look great in your profile pic.

Absolutely love your vlog. Laughing all the way through... not the best thing to do when I'm in a room with eight other programmers who are very serious.

Hi Maria ,
This is really funny .
Can I take your permission for adding it to a vlog that I want to write about how troublesome writing is ?
