The Writing Princess’s Manifesto

The Little MermaidIn an effort to catch back up with the world at large, I wrote a make-up blog post at the Waterworld Mermaids today.

The message may have been delivered with more force than I intended, but it certainly gets my point across.

Some days, we are just frustrated with the world. The chaos of our lives can go on for days…weeks…months…years.

We cannot let that defeat us. Ever.

I Am Not a Brand

…I am a Princess.

Seriously, though…author Maureen Johnson has a lovely little manifesto on her blog regarding The Thing that is Social Networking. You should definitely click over and check out the story on how she came to create this manifesto, and the woman who undoubtedly clubs baby seals. I certainly wanted to club her. I’ve been on panels with people like this. So have you. Don’t be this person. And don’t put “Author” in your Facebook name. (Seriously. Cut that crap out.)

I won’t steal her manifesto by copying and pasting it here either — you’ll have to go to her site and see it for yourself. Just know that I agree with 99% of it. The only change I would make is to take out “Post more cat pictures” and insert “Don’t be a jerk.”

As a compromise, I have posted here a cat who is famous for being a jerk. You’re welcome. Y’all have a nice Sunday, now.
