Which Person Comes First?

Today, I'm over at WriterUnboxed talking about why I write in the first-person, and why I think writing in the third person is so much tougher (for me).

And last night, I attended a book party for the awesome Laura Dave and The Divorce Party. I had the pleasure of catching up with some writer friends, and here's a pic! (Taken from a Blackberry, so it's sort of sketchy....and please ignore my bag that looks mildly perverse stuck between my legs! Ha!) With me are
Sarah Mlynowski, Janelle Brown (whose book I posted about last week), Laura Dave, and Alison Pace. (The woman on the end was a friend of a friend.) Great fun!

I loved THE DIVORCE PARTY. So brilliant. How cool for all of you guys to get together to celebrate!

Allison, am cracking up because when I clicked on, the FIRST thing I saw in that photo was the purse between your legs! LOL!!!!

Sounds like it was a lot of fun though!

Congrats to all the talented authors.

LOL, MM! I assumed that the dude who took it took it from waist-up, and then we saw the picture, and I was like, "Oh nooooooooo, that looks all sorts of wrong." Oh well. I was too lazy to crop it.

Brown is definitely the new black this summer in NYC. :)

I know you're petite, Allison, so it was funny to me to see a lineup of novelists all the same height. :-)

Great photo, despite the purse.

Did the six of of you color-coordinate your outfits on purpose?

Di - That's so funny: we were chatting about that very thing last night. The vertically-challenged group of authors such as we were.

I think it's a great shot, so fun and natural :D You can't think up something like this!

What a cute group of writer chicks, you dress alike and look alike, do I see the next big idea for a reality show???
