Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

Baseball bats and gum

I'm sitting on the couch last night, Rocky in my lap, when my husband comes into the room and stretches his arm toward me.

"Try this," he says. "It's Altoids gum."

My brain immediately makes a correlation: Altoids=breath mint, Altoids gum=breath-freshening gum. Hm. Okay. I take the gum from his hand and pop it into my mouth. After the first few chews, I literally feel my entire face puckering as my eyes bug out and squinch up at the same time.

"Holy crap!" I choke out. "What the hell is this?"

He shows me the little tin. Altoids Sour Chewing Gum. My wonderful, considerate, loving husband (in case you can't tell, my tongue is firmly in my cheek at this moment) conveniently left the word sour out so he could watch my reaction to the gum. And laugh his ass off.

Where's a nice heavy baseball bat when you need one?

He needs to be very afraid. I will get him back.


  • *snickers* A belated April's Fool joke, eh?

  • That would probably be his excuse. I'm not buying it, though. And I'm still going to get him back. *eg*
