Can you hear me screaming all the way from Virginia?

I wrote this story.


I should have written this story.


I thought I was writing this story, except in MY story the heroine was called Jasmine and the hero was a wrestler.  And somewhere between going to work and raising a child on my own and writing fan fiction, this story just got away from me.

V. depressed right now.

  1. *hugs* I am so sorry to hear of this. I know how writing can end up on the back burner because of real life, but you still have talent and more ideas. You’ll get there, I believe in you!!

    (PS – I have your PP subway poster framed and hanging by my front door.)

    • Thanks! I had it all mapped out in my head; although, in my imagination I wanted Jill Scott to play the female lead and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the male lead. Argh! & Whine?

      Oh good, you got your print. A couple of days ago while I was standing in the post office mailing some, I had this panicky thought that I had forgotten to send you yours. Proof that I have WAY too much going on at once. SEND PHOTOS!!!!! 🙂

    • Thanks! I keep wondering if I can salvage my story and make it a little different so I don’t get sued. Imagine that, sued for a story that probably pre-dated this one. But, now that I think about it, it probably means that my story was not quite as original as I always thought it was. Fomulaic, more like. Will just have to knuckle-down and come up with something better.

    • Thanks! You know, the other day Delta contacted me to tell me that my SkyMiles are going to expire soon. I am STILL trying to figure out a way to “finesse” them so I can come to Chicago. Delta does NOT make it easy.

    • I know, I am an idiot. I keep seeing these people getting book deals for stuff that is pure crap, and I’ve always known I have at least one “half”-crap story in my head. I really need to get my act together. No excuse, the daughter is 25 now and living on her own in Boston.
