I love waking up, getting a large cup of coffee and turning on my computer as my morning wake up ritual. The first place I go to is my email inbox. The comments you all leave are funny, witty, intelligent, helpful, clever and kind. In the four years since I began blogging, each comment has brought me a bit of joy
Then this morning, someone comments on one of my posts that they don’t like what I write here and I am not welcome to visit them again. I am devastated to gigantic proportions. I begin sobbing huge gulping heaves that cause me to throw up in the bathroom sink. I can’t stop crying. I question my sanity because anyone this upset over twenty-five words (yes, I counted) from a stranger needs psychiatric care.
I want a professional writing career? How on earth will I ever bring myself to submit my work to editors and publishers if I get this upset?
