(From Amy Ferris)

Hollye and I met through She Writes.

It's one of those girl writer meets girl writer and falls in love (in the best friend AND let’s write a book together kinda way) stories.

A wonderful tale.

Both Hollye and I are pretty all-out…

i am in awe.

Your welcome.  I didn't realize you did the shame prom.  Heard about through Madge.  I was going to participate via a scholarship for $50.  Do you remember me?

Wow, thank you. So are we all, aren't we? I love what you write. Funny and moving - very effective in evoking a moment and the emotion it contains and spreads.

I just finished your book this morning! Wow.
I mean, I loved the first three quarters- there were moments I actually laughed out loud. It was cute, smart, funny... But that epilogue! Holy crap! That killed me. It could have gone on and on and I would have still been laying in my bed at 3 pm reading it and ignoring my family.
Your writing is so warm and open, I felt like I was just hanging out talking with my best friend. What a great talent- to be able to convey that kind of feeling to your reader.
Kudos, girl!
Loved it!
What's next?

"i personally like a good mess. whether it's in a memoir, or in my bedroom... or my kitchen.
i don't want all tied up neatly, or perfect or saying the right things because someone might get offended. i do, i admit, like sometimes for there to be a trail of toilet paper....
cause then i know life has been lived."

I LOVE THAT! You rock!
Man, I missed a few days of logging on to She Writes and WOW- Seems like a lot happened and who the hell is Nanette????
Ha ha ha
I am loving your blog, and your book- almost done. then I'm giving it to my writer friend Cindy Sleman who follows your blog too. I'm going to let her read it but then I'm going to make sure she buys her own copy!!!
Rock on girl.

Wowa girl, you are busy! I have been writing in my journal and writing memoir for 30+ years and am getting tired of writing about myself, so started writing poetry, but it ended up also being memoir. I've just edited a book coming out this month, WRITERS AND THEIR NOTEBOOKS. Was a fun project, but am really needing a literary change. I'm trying to decide between humor writing or studying Buddhism, since I realized that Clooney is beyond my reach, even though I know someone who knows him!
