LOL, so glad to see a blog by you ladies this am. Thanks for the bleeping laugh! and yeah, I agree. Between SK trashing people and the freaking PAN (is it erotic? or erotic romance? or yuck, I don’t want those those images in my mind!) um, it’s been an interesting week!
OK…back to writing!
(I know I have serious issue’s w/ the whole …, but I just broke myself from the need to ITALIC too much.- baby steps)
I would say I want to be one of you two when I grow up…but, well I think I may be older. An Aquarius like you Lauren, but well really soon (but not yet!) the um, um, well, 4 0 is coming.
Alright, I’m off the floor now, and still trying to remember when I got old. The kids tell me it was “back in the day”. Ha I’m making them a special batch of brownies w/ex-lax.
No names, but as I read something from a certain “man” in regards to what I’ve heard was a “Top Notch” read..it surprised me of his character.
I acutally did a Blog post around such a topic (not necc regarding that issue) but including it overall.
The title was “You’re Never too Big nor Rich…to be Kind and Gracious”
Part was about “him”, part curtailed the thought about C.B. and part was about a snub I myself recieved where basically I was told that though invited somewhere…I was to be seen not heard.
Uh, by the length of this post I’m sure you can see where that may be an issue for me. I may not be a BIG name someone…but I am the BOSS where I work, and I PLAY by the same Rules as my Employee’s! This was SELF enacted to show good faith. Matter a fact I engaged a ‘Commitee” of sorts that can supercede my vote, at any given time.
I have their backs…they have mine, in part because of the trust and respect we’ve all shown one another.
There is simply no excuse for the actions of some as of late.
I have read one book lately…that though the ideas were fantastic and original, I simply couldn’t get into it.
Did I blog about it? NO! I simply stayed Mum.
Why, it was POLITE!!!
What happened to common sense manners?
Ok..but enough of that. RT !!!
I’m am DOING all that I can to clear a path at work…at home…and everywhere in between for the Pre-Convention Workshop as well as the convention itself. I’ve never been and heard such WONDERFUL things!!!
You two keep up those great LAUGHS and Attitudes and I hope to maybe meet you at RT.
OMG…you two crack me up while making very valid and important points. I do think that just basic common courtesy and respect should have prevented these things from happening and yes, while everyone is allowed to have their opinion..there is time and place to voice them and possibly a public newspaper is not the best spot to do it.
Glad to hear about the CB apology.
I would love to go to RT, but unfortunately I am broke and I supposed as a semi-responsible parent…I might need to feed the darling kiddos. Although, the possibility for a dinner, lunch, coffee, or snack with you two…could make me reevaluate. (I am of course only kidding…these are the same people who are going to be in charge of me when I am old and feeble.)
I receive emails from a few yahoo writer email loops. I received some emails discussing how one famous successful writer bashed another famous successful writer. I’m not sure if this is the same thing that you found so disappointing recently, Lauren. But i was disappointed that this famous author, who I have immensely enjoyed, who has received flack in his own career at times did this.
And this was my reply…
Writing may be a calling, a passion, etc, but it is also a profession. As with any profession you should act in a professional manner. And to me at least this means that there are opinions you express in public, and opinions you save to express with your close friends and family away from a public type forum. Writers bashing other writers’ books (or their personal lives, or their websites, etc…)….. publicly, is unprofessional.
As for the rest of your video blog this morning… you ladies always give me a good laugh.
I’m with you. I don’t see the point of doing it. I really don’t. Sure, I’m not “in love” with everyone and everything but I can’t even fathom the idea of going in public in behaving that way. Also, I’m not even sure my mind works that way. I’m far from Susie Sunshine but it never crosses my mind to go bash someone who pisses me off. The first thing I think to do is pick up the phone and moan and groan about it to my BFF. Its in their job description to have to put up with those moments.
Yes! Use your power for good.
Sadly, it seems this type of stuff is happening weekly as of late. OY
