*after thoroughly examining subject, I’ve picked up on several bad habits of behavior, and patterns of distress*
Alright…now, Ms. J.C.S., I want you to close your eyes and take a deep breath. Now…think back on a time where everything you said mattered to everyone. Do you have that memory? Good, good. Now I want you to release such a silly thought. And yes, it’s still $150 per session…
Wouldn’t it be nice to have everyone who seems to be listening, acknowledged your every word? The result would be that everyone would actually have a better crack at life.
And politicians…no matter the party, could then be trusted.
In fact, listening and then harnessing the power to enabalize one’s ability to “come through” would surely cut down on what some of us nonsensical people like to call “complete and unadulterated fuckery” Excuse my French 🙂
The torment of such an idea causes judgment lapses in adults and young adults. Thus creating a space in which people call their bubble. Don’t touch them, talk to them, make eye contact and if you’re sick…stay home.
Through all of what seems like simple miscommunication, we fail to realize one simple fact.
I’m sitting at Starbucks attempting to avoid any and everyone except my daughter who is lovingly playing with her own tablet. And my wayward glances and the need to not give complete eye contact is an indicator that I have no desire to be bothered.
Yet and still…I want respect.
I wish I were kidding, but this is no laughing matter. As I utilize my own discomfort as an example, I want people to recognize the severity of doing so with genre types.
(LOL I still hate Romance)
However, if a friend came to me and said “Hey, check out my newest Romance/Thriller…who am I to say no?
What if it borders between horribly, regurgitated Sci Fi and history’s idea of SteamPunk ? Read it.
Why? Because there’s someone out there who will equally loathe your genre, your writing, and probably just you in general.
This may be advice to myself, but what good is wisdom if it hasn’t been practiced?
(*I’ve read a few Historical/Romance novels and may be feeling a tinge of guilt…but these are separate and will always receive more adulation that the average Romance novel taking up space on amazon.com 🙂 )
Progress. Today is the 16th of January, and unfortunately…I have nearly two weeks until I am able to NOT STEAL STARBUCKS’ WIFI…(it’s actually free…)
It isn’t embarassing…it’s just that I shouldn’t have to lol. But things will get back on track soon.
I’ve actually had to take extra measures to insure my ex doesn’t trifle with my work. At first I thought it best to delete THREE PAGES I’ve worked so diligently on…but I got smart (er) and banned him from all of them.
Since he was blocked, I wasn’t sure if he was going about Facebook, sharing every detail or being an ass in general.
The reason that lead me to this? He signed up for WordPress only to comment on last week’s post.
The guy obviously doesn’t seem to get it. And fortunately…comments for most blogs can be moderated…there was no grief.
I have two weeks until I make simple adjustments to byondepic.com. I will keep everyone informed of most changes.
I’m also hoping I can restart my BlogTalk Radio show in the beginning of February. I really do miss my shows.
And I have an awesome new logo, featured today on the blog.
Does anyone else drum up a sophisticated and elaborate schedule…only to wing it most of the week?
That would be me…prior to the events that took place. I had a schedule before I got married…then my schedule changed to him…twenty four seven…
Now I have to get back on track. There are a few things holding me back this month…but February I have to become aggressive again.
How would it be if I simply…gave up? How many times have I mentioned I can’t?
And I still haven’t 🙂 That’s an amazing thought I really need to keep in mind.
Denver Comic Con-
Well…this time I registered on time! LOL Now I await approval. Upon being approved or declined…
I’m still going! Hopefully, I do get approved…but I won’t hold my breath. I did send in some of my work and all together showed I was all over the place. On top of that I asked several very important questions.
• Can I sell more than just my artwork? I am technically a small business.
• Can I have two others to help?
• Can you please accept my application???
I willl not walk proudly around suggesting I’m the best and they have to have me there. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that may happen again (that was a joke) But this year is critical for me. It’s been two years since I first published and I have had some progression in areas I couldn’t imagine. What really needs to happen is patience on my part-whether I go or not.
I do plan to keep you all updated. And to be fairly honest- I’M NERVOUS!
I want to thank my newest followers and my loyal followers for continuing to read my blog. Enjoy your weekend 🙂
