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.

Wasn't Friday the 13th *Yesterday*?

I'm so mad I could scream.

Earlier today, I was forwarding a bunch of messages through to my little crit group on Yahoo Groups, when suddenly I started getting "undeliverable" messages. I opened one up.

Your Yahoo! Groups account has been disabled because you had an auto-responder set up.

What the hell happened? There's no auto-responder set up on that e-mail addy! Yet, Yahoo decided there was and disabled it, consequently unsubscribing me from all the groups I belonged to. Including my crit group.

I've spent this evening e-mailing the owners of all my groups, asking if I could resubscribe under an alternative address, and I think I've finally finished. One big problem, though. I can't resubscribe to my crit group.

You see, I'm the owner of that group, and I set it up so that all new subscriptions had to be approved. By me. So now my crit group has no owner, and I can't get back on.

I've e-mailed Yahoo, but there's no telling how long it'll take. I hate Yahoo. Did I say hate? Hate is such a strong word. I don't hate them, but I am extremely torqued.

Anybody have any suggestions?


  • Do you have a regular yahoo ID so you can get in that way and resub your email address? Or have they even blocked your ID because they think your email is invalid? Arrggghhh, Yahoo is soooo annoying.

  • Thanks for the suggestion, Tess. They didn't block the ID, so I was able to resub to most of my groups (which led to the mess I had to clean up this morning), but my Crit group was a problem since I was the owner and had to approve new subs. It's all back, though, and I'm feeling better now.
