Was just hit with a major pang of guilt…

I had just opened the book Writing for Story, by Jon Franklin, and began reading one of his highly-acclaimed stories, entitled Mrs. Kelly’s Monster, that detailed surgical procedures to relieve a patient of almost four decades of suffering from a malformation of blood vessels in the back of her brain.

And I thought…36 years of agony, all the while partnering with her husband to raise a family.

And I thought…and here I am whimpering and simpering about Facebook’s cluelessness about member requests that vaporize.

And I thought…get off your duff and keep writing!

And I thought…you folks should too!

Dig in! Ramp it up! Kick some literary booty! Go!

But now, thanks to these Care2 writers, I have some fallback versions of ‘my reality’:

  • “Yes, I forgot my pants again, but I’ve been busy adapting to new experiences.”
  • “Sure, I realize now the steaks are fossilized, but at least I’m working on my efficiency.”
  • “I know I left the car running overnight, but my decision to have both chocolate and vanilla ice cream was spot-on!”
  • “Dear! Check out my new use for the weedwhacker! This thinking-induced forgetfulness is really paying off!”
