My Slice of Life…

Hey, Marty’s really getting into the short stories, isn’t he? Isn’t it terrific you can buy an entire story for less than a mocha cappuccino?? I’m still one story behind but life’s been kicking my butt. I promise to get it done, but the challenges are many.

For instance, today I have to write all day to meet my other deadlines, or some hairy editor is going to fire me, then I can’t eat. Monday before the sun comes up, I’m headed on a plane for New Jersey to visit an important person in my life who isn’t faring too well with lung cancer. I’ve got such a battle of emotions going on, I almost feel schizophrenic since I got that call. MY Friday was black, for sure. Not even Jack Daniel’s is helping with this one.

Anyway, life may be kicking my butt, but I’m tough. And I’ve got friends. Friends known as the Rogues. And since they’ve got my back, I may be in for a rough week, and my story may be late, but they’ll still love me.

Aren’t friends just awesome?? I wonder if another word for friends is angels? Even cranky ones who write sexy short stories…

See you next week – in the meantime take good care of yourselves.
