Gas Pains...

One of the blogs I frequent has a thought provoking post today...check it out.

Plot Monkeys

On another subject...I've often read on author sites, where published authors talk about people who've actually asked them if they'd write a story with someone else's story idea. And share the money. I laughed because I wondered if it was really that common. Until recently. I had a family member...known for his get rich quick schemes which usually involve someone else doing the work while "family member" gets the credit and profit, who told me that I should send my current ms to him. He could help crit the chapters...and I could share the royalties. He's been reading for years so he's somewhat of an expert. Ugh. And I'm not even published.

That's deplorable.

But you know I have this really great idea for a story...

Just kidding.

And (())) on the R. (I'm from sub care) It's sounds like a good one though.

LOL! Thanks Mel...the R's with suggestions are confusing though. Why do they tell you what direction you should go if they don't want you to resubmit?

I almost e-mailed an idea to one of my favortie authors just because I'd like to see the story written--and written well. LOL!

Gee, and I was just hoping for a book dedication. LOL!

Every family has one...
Why don't they understand that the whole family runs when they see him/her coming?

Jennifer ~ LOL! I'm not surprised it sounds funny coming from you though!

Chicki ~ I know...but he'll never get it. He was upset recently because nobody invited him to holiday dinners. I almost feel sorry...almost. I've been sucked in too many times and I know what'll happen.
