    (sigh) I am depressed, because I suck at writing. I'm working on the what is undoubtedly the fifteenth version of my book, and my writing coach pretty said it was crap. (sigh)

    So I come here and see this:

    They don't say, "That's right!" with a confidence in their own opinion, but rather they add the "I think" part, trying to gain our favor with sympathy maybe?

    Who knows.

    I know. It's a random sentence they pulled from some database, but still...it put a smile on my face for no apparent reason.

    Now, I'll go back under my rock and try to forget my dreams. (sigh)

    (Yes, I'm asking for pity or, at the very least, a smack up side the head.)

They were looking for a Frankie so and so (my friends older brother was a Frankie - wrong one though). Fortunately that was cleared up quickly and they carried on in their hunt still with a full head of steam. Turns out this Frankie had gotten one of these men's daughters preggers. Did I mention I grew up in a pretty rural setting. I have never forgotten that little moment.

    Again Grats - best thing ever. I don't have a gun (when I was an older lad I shot my best friend in the nose with a pellet gun - but that's a story for another day) - but I sure do get the inclination.

    Cheers
    Haha, it sounds like I need to hear more of your stories.

    Thanks a ton, we're pretty excited.

    Didn't Mother Chuffalump ever tell you to not hit a woman? It's not chivalry, it's a case of a woman can hit back just as hard

    I am currently wiling away the last few stubborn moments of the workday in a strange office. Not used to these voices. Funny, they talk about the same things I hear in my office. I want to go home - to my other office. So to block them out and since I really have nothing to do I have been catching up with SFF World. Hey Peeps! Missed ya. Hope all is well.

    Sorry to hear about your struggles there TMSO, I enjoy your blog updates. Your writing there is fantastic. I have not been writing at all and hanging out here makes me feel guilty. Odd eh! I need som motivation. I thought turning 40 would do it - nope. Ah well, when its time it will be time.

    Cheers all and thanks for listening to my ramblings.

    Hey DD!

    Glad to see you are still visiting the forums.

    New office? Will you be going back to your old one?

    Yes, tomorrow. I was on the road today and ended early so instead of driving the 50 km back to my office I popped into a satellite office to ride out the day, which is much nearer my house. But it's weird here. I am in a cubicle full of boxes.

    Doing promo on my latest release. Waiting for agent, publisher responses to three books. Just finished my current blog post: THE SMALL PRESS STIGMA, and then going out to push-now three frackin, fricken acres of tall grass. Oh, waiting for a contract signature to be read and finalized.

    I was awake when they pulled mine out. Got a nice view of a clean scapel going in, and a bloody one going out. Same goes for when they stitched me up. Hopefully you get put under when they do yours.
