A tease

“Sam laughed, a funny, self-deprecating laugh. “You did read a lot. And spent too much time just inside the kitchen window, where I couldn’t see you very well.”

“And not enough time mostly naked in front of my bedroom window?” I teased.

Sam turned bright red. “That,” he said, “is so not the point of this conversation.” ― Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver

“I wonder how many people don’t get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to be with.” ― Fannie Flagg, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Truisms

“If a man wants you, nothing can keep him away. If he doesn’t want you, nothing can make him stay.” ― Oprah Winfrey

 

Nerd girls

“Nerd girls are the world’s most underutilized romantic resource. And guys, do not tell me that nerd girls are not hot because that shows a Paris Hilton-esque failure to understand hotness.” ― John Green

My mom was one of the smartest women I have ever known and is probably why smart is I like smart women. She was also intelligent, which I define as pure cognitive abilities.  To me smarts are about common sense and have more to do with the ability to solve and resolve everyday life problems. Intelligence may derive a computer equation to solve a complex math relationship, but smarts is what figures out how to make a human relationship work.

Taking the Plunge

“I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.” ― Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally.

Its probably a character flaw on my part, but I have never known a woman I couldn’t live without. I have messed up with three or four women I probably should have stayed with. At the time I knew them I was too immature to settle down with one. A couple touched me so deeply it scared me, so I found excuses or flaws to live without them. It is painfully obvious now that I was just too afraid of them breaking my heart so I seperated before they got close enough to hurt me. I have been a fool.

 

Words are the easy part…

“But love, I’ve come to understand, is more than three words mumbled before bedtime. Love is sustained by action, a pattern of devotion in the things we do for each other every day.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding

Is love without follow-up action possible? Are the words alone proof? I don’t think so. Without actionable follow-up the words are empty, just sounds.

 

Questions about marketing

I boosted an excerpt from Liberating Rhonda over the weekend for fifty bucks and received 75 Likes, which was not bad. Only ONE of those 75 however clicked on the link to my Amazon page. That’s less than 2% sell thru. I also decided to join Kindle unlimited so maybe that will provide some exposure. When I started I believed writing would be the greatest challenge. If the storytelling was good it would sell itself. I no longer believe that. Writing seems to me now to be HALF the battle. Marketing is the other half. Shoot, I am still a Rookie Writer and learning the craft! I know little and less about marketing and it shows in my sales so far. I figure my costs so far to be approximately eight grand. My profits so far are less than a hundred bucks, mostly friends and fellow writers. This certainly IS an expensive hobby! More than once I’ve considered switching from writing novels to maybe short stories. I have  sections of about five short stories already written. I use them as a change of pace when My Muse won’t visit. A clear, clean paragraph in a ten-page short story has more impact than one in a 150-page novel. Its easy to get discouraged in this business because there are so many really good authors out there already competing for readers. I enjoy it though, and don’t want to quit, mainly because it stimulates my synapses and challenges me, giving me a meaning, purpose, and direction I need in my life. When My Muse DOES visit, writing is my second favorite activity in the world !

“Even though I prefer to enjoy the entire hour with him, sometimes Gwen, I’ve found I can satisfy Marc to completion in about a minute if my mouth and hands are used together just right. “she stated with some satisfaction.

“You mean a quickie, Rhonda?” Gwen said, her smile growing larger.

“Yeah.” Rhonda mischievously grinned back. “How cool is that ? I am calling the shots from my knees!”

It soon became clear Rhonda could have her way with Marc almost any time she wantedthirty seconds, five minutes, ten minutes, it didn’t matter.

She IS in charge.
