Friday Five -- Hangover Style

So, my awesome buddies over at Paper Hangover and I have decided to try something new on Fridays.  (Because, guys, flash fiction is hard!)

We decided to give Friday Five a try, and see how everyone likes it.

The idea?  Paper Hangover gives a Friday Five prompt, we respond on our blogs.  Link up over on PH and hop around to see what everyone says.  Cool, right?

In which I address myself in second person.  This should be entertaining.

  1. Writing is the hardest, craziest, and most exhausting thing you will ever do.  It's also incredibly rewarding.
  2. Dude, those ENC1101, 1102 (and whatever the other numbers were) professors were WRONG.  USE THE OXFORD COMMA!!  Serial commas FTW!
  3. This is going to take a very long time, so go ahead and practice using your patience.
  4. That first book you write?  Yeah, it's gonna suck.  But that's okay, the second one will be much better.
  5. Before you pick up that pen, go read 5 books in your genre.  Now.  I'm serious.

Hehe.  What about you?  What five things would you tell yourself?
