I stumbled upon your blog, and boy, am I glad I did. Great post. Yes, I agree with you, there are more narcissists in North America than anywhere else. I think it’s the way kids are raised here. When my children were young, so many times I witnessed a playground scene: a toddler takes another’s toy or pushes someone around, and his mother wouldn’t intervene, wouldn’t say that it’s wrong. Nobody teaches the kids to think of someone else first. My roots are in Russia. I never allowed my kids such behavior, but perhaps I was wrong. As it happens, my kids haven’t become very successful yet. Neither have I. To get success, people have to be ruthless. They have to be able to walk on others’ heads to reach the top, but they can’t do that if conscience gets in the way.

Sorry for the morbid tone, I’m just so upset with this tendency. Thanks for raising the issue.

Hello, Lisette! I'm not on here much, so I just got your request... Yes, we're totally on for Skype. Though I might be blurry. I bought a cheap camera. :)

Hi Lisette, and welcome to She Writes!  If you need help getting started here, check out our helpfully named "Getting Started" page.  And if you want to find a quick way to make contact with other She Writers working in your genre, or local to you, the groups are probably the best thing to explore first.


Warm best, and enjoy!
