My sister is the Rachel Berry of the literary world. Do you see the resemblance? She is chock full of ideas (really good ones, if you ask me), a total control freak, overenthusiastic, reach for the stars kind of gal. A blogging, vlogging, facebooking, tweeting, commenting, reading, reviewing, emailing, thinking, writing, planning, promoting, social networking force of nature.
She is determined, determined to succeed at this whole book writing thing even at the expense of sleep--after all, we have a strict 6 chapter a week schedule to uphold. Deadline from our publisher? No, just a schedule Lisa developed to get our butts into gear. She will stop at nothing. And she is single-handedly driving our agent and editor craaaazy.
But, seriously, if we ever make it in this crazy business, it will be because of her. I just write 50% of the books and wait for Rachel Lisa to tell me what to do next.
And I like it. I love it. I wouldn't have it any other way. It must be the younger sister in me.
How about you guys? Do you have a little Rachel Berry in you? If not, I'm thinking about renting Lisa out occasionally so her over-enthusiasm doesn't get us blackballed from publishing.
