    Hilarious! I would have never thought I would enjoy watching people get thrown from horses as much as I did.

    • Yeah, it’s pretty awful. But it really is what getting the first book done and out was like. It’s pretty accurate, at least in how it feels.

      I’ve ridden a horse (English style) and jumped before (briefly). I almost flew over the head once but managed to hang on to the mane.

      I guess that’s why this post made sense to me.

      I also chose that video for the lyrics. The love of writing no matter how much it hurts.
