I'm really stoked about something that has nothing to do with my love life.
Three weeks ago, I started attending a local writers' group that I found through Meetup. We meet at the local B & N. The group leader gives us a writing prompt (for example, "My mother always used to tell me...") and each person in the group writes for 30 minutes, inspired by the prompt. Then we share what we've written.
A man in the group paid me a wonderful compliment last week: He likes my writing. He thinks I sound a bit like David Sedaris. AND, he's not just any man; he's a published author himself, is a professor of English at a nearby university, and also has a law degree!
It's exciting because what he said can still be true, even if I'm older and uglier and fatter than I am now. And because I realize I haven't really felt good about myself in a long time.
And this week, the same man complimented my work again and urged me to keep on, and finish my unfinished projects.
And, all of this is purely intellectual and mental (in case anybody thinks otherwise.) No sexual or romantic overtones at all. And I'm thrilled.
I need a little more information before I do something so drastic as "like" this post. Is he a lawyer? Because that's a deal breaker....
Don't be a perverted asshole. Be a perverted gentleman.
