Oh, no! Major discouragement! Some other lady has published a book which is just like mine was going to be! And it’s funny! AND … to my horror, it’s not some dusty old tome from the two dollar discard pile, 1998! It’s published this year!
(Wah!Rush to chocolate stash. Emote to Diary. Consider burning WordPress.)
Is it even worth going on wrangling this blog. Should I just tinker with genealogy instead? Go on to planning our next trip?
Wash the dishes? (Huh! Not that distressed!)
No, I shall go on with MY book. I shall make a new chapter …
“How to wash out your pique, rinse away thoughts of revenge … and restart your Maytag!”
I shall have better ideas. Be funnier. Rely on quirk and oddity. Replay my shame-vids from disgustingslobhoarder days? Yes! I will continue my author journey. I will publish and be damned!
And I will NOT read rival books! Never! Not ever! So there!
