A PS to last night's post

Last night I wanted to share the love of some people I enjoy here on LJ. Lately I've been carrying a load of guilt that I am not getting around to other journals to post enough (though I do read you all as often as possible) so I figured I could at least reach out a bit in my own journal and let people know I was thinking of them. And I did. And those that posted replies here in the spirit of LJ, well I think you all understood me and that I couldn't mention EVERYONE I KNOW.

But some people didn't understand and boy, they let me know in other ways.

Well, heck, what can I say? I have a large friends list and I could have just as easily listed them all and said "Go read them and learn great things" because after all, I must have friended them for a reason, right? Please understand this: if I mentioned you in last night's post it's because, of late, you've been filling a particular need of MINE. If you are on my friend's list, it is because I enjoy reading you, sharing the writing journey and the love of books with you. If I didn't mention you, it doesn't mean a thing. Not a thing. Okay? Thank you. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Yes, I know YOU were. (And I know you know I love you.) That's why I posted that people that POSTED replies, understood. Some emails, not so understanding.

I thought I left high school 30 years ago. I guess not.

To counter those who misunderstood, I'll just say that I always appreciate when someone points me at someone else's journal. So thank you.

Sorry you got trashed for making compliments!!! Yeesh. Here's one you didn't offend in any way shape or form. I heart your kudos list!!
(Meanwhile, I've been feeling guilty for not responding to more posts lately, but I'm drowning in obligations. Helllllllp!!)

Thanks for the affirmation. It was weird, that's all I can say. And I also say no to any not-posting-on-LJ-guilt because we already have enough guilt, thank you very much.

Oh my goodness - you shouldn't have to apologize at all or make excuses. This is YOUR blog, post/say what's on your mind. End of story! :) *HUGS*

Thanks! I made the icon a while ago and was saving it for the perfect day. I think this was the day.

What I love best about LJ is the sharing and caring that goes on.

Hahahaha!

No ... we never really leave high school, do we?

Thanks for the funny icon, too ... I think it must be brought out only on special occasions.

Now: it's time for me to be getting back to that furious email I was drafting.

susanwrites

Yes, special occasions only. Glad I had it ready and waiting for me.

Let's see how many chili peppers your email can give my Eudora. LOL

I missed all the fuss but had to go back and read your post. What fun it was to read and click on some new LJs. There are so many great reads around here, it's hard to keep track.

Love the expression, btw. :)

Thanks! It is really hard to keep track and hard to remember to write when there are so many great things to read.

I enjoyed the new links, too. Thanks. And you can put anybody on your LJ you want to, so there to the complainers, whoever they may be. (Sticking out tongue which isn't very grandma like.)

Thanks! Never underestimate the power of a stuck out tongue. :-)

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
