A post about women tearing down other women- and why it makes me so freaking angy:

Hi Paige, I think I'm supposed to reply here to your comment, but I'm a newbie so please forgive me if I'm "Misbehavin'" LOL 

OUCH! This has got to hurt. I'm not an expert on the dynamics of relationships even though I've been married to the same man for 31 years. That said, I've got a couple of things that come to mind. 

First, I think you should put as much distance between your writing and your husband. Write when he's not around, if you can. And don't mention it to him, at least temporarily. 

It seems like there is something going on in him. Maybe on some level he feels threatened by your writing. Perhaps it's the time it takes or your devotion to it. It's possible he's not even aware of what it is that's bugging him. Maybe at some point when things are going well between you, you can ask him to think about what he's feeling deep down. Something unresolved from childhood, maybe? 

There comes a point where you reassuring him all the time is going to cause you to become embittered. Better to communicate as much as you can before that happens. You might need an arbitrator/counselor to help. 

I hope you can work it out. Please keep us posted. ((HUGS))

Hi everyone!

I need some advice.

I have a husband who is pretty sure that everything I write revolves around him, and he usually interprets it negatively!

I can usually handle his negativity, but my big problem seems to be that I subconsciously allow him to inhibit my writing.

Every time he expresses something negative about my work, I have a very hard time getting back on the writing wagon.

Any thoughts on how I can handle this?

I just wrote a post about pregnancy and marijuana.  Thought that it applied to the "misbehaving women" category.

Hi fellow Misbehavers,

Do you have a "Blanche Dubois?"  Do you struggle against "the male gaze"?  I'd like to hear the nuances of your own self-image as a woman.

Page’s River Writing Journeys for Women were featured in Oprah’s O magazine in 2006 as “One of the top six great all-girl getaways of the year!”

I realize I'm new to the group, but I'd love to get the word out about my 15th River Writing Journey for Women celebration trip next August.  Sheri Griffith Expeditions, who outfits my trips, is offering the beautiful return scenic flight FREE if you pay your $300 deposit by December 31st.  All the info is on the retreat page of my website http://www.pagelambert.com/retreat_index.html.  These trips are perfect for women our age!

I don't want to "ask" for permission to deck the halls anymore ...
