SEAPODS is perfect - I feel all of those - last week was particularly S&D - LOL!
But I'm brushing myself, still grumpy though!

Richele, ditto about Swati.

Joeypouch, so glad that you didn't perish from choking on your biggest pet peeve LOL. As I said in my post, life can be funny sometimes, even if we aren't always laughing.

I think we should design a name for the way we feel when we get those rejection letters; self pity, empowered, angry, exhausted, positive, optimistic, desperate....That's it, we're SEAPODS!

Swati - finally got a chance to look at your story, and I love it. So thoughtful and evocative. Good for you! You're inspiring me to get going on my own :). Though you seem to get a lot more done than I can possibly imagine ever doing. Oh well, it's good for me to aspire :).

Loving this group, by the way. Great writers, great support.

Swati - write the next part, please.
Jillian, I have had similar experiences. I always take the silent moral high ground, i notice wrongdoings and say nothing to said offenders - yet everyone else points out my innocent mistakes against the world. I can't stand people that drop/spit their gum on the street - it drives me mad. I see it and I just make a mental note of how vile it is and how I will never do such a thing, littering the world in such an idle, crass way. So, the other day when I had a coughing fit in the middle of the city centre and spat out my gum for fear that i would choke and obviously die - i get a tut and a 'gross' comment. Sigh.

Richele - you are so sweet! Thank you for that - it's good to smile in the midst of the "No thank you's" I'm getting from agents :-)!

Swati...you are talented...and very pretty. lol. Every time I see your photo I honestly think, "she is so pretty!" lol.

Good morning everyone,

Swati, your short story was vividly emotional. You must continue to explore this venue of writing!!

Heather, you captured so well your struggle of trying to remain positive when life can get lonely and difficult without your husband.

Peryl, I love your stories on your boys and I don't think it is because I am biased, having three of my own. I live for humor and you sure have a lot of it.

I will do my best to keep reading today while managing my sick ten year old and feisty five year old.

And...my first attempt at a short (very short) story on my blog....http://www.thesinglemotherschronicles.com/2010/03/01/the-relationsh...

Really would love your thoughts and promise to comment back within a day!

I'm slowly but surely going down the list.

Swati, thanks for checking me out...I'm your newest follower as well. Love the book reviews. I'm always in the market for new reading material for my kids and for myself. After I write this I'm going to check out the other things you wrote.

Karen, your post was beautifully written and with such honesty. Thank you for sharing!

The Obnoxious SAHM, I loved your post as well. I wrote more in my comment to you, but I have no idea when I'll be able to call myself a writer. Maybe when someone calls me one? Hmmm.

I'm off to read more!!

And BTW, if you only read 1 or 2 of my blogs posts, choose one of these...they're my favorites....
