4 Ways to Handle Arguments at Work: Advice for the Boss

Is "scary woman" redundant?

With Halloween trying to sneak up on us, it's time to look without fear at the differences between what makes men scary and what makes women scary.For example, your male villain in a horror movie must have third-degree peeling burns and open sores over most of his body; that's a given. It's a plus if he's wearing gloves with knives on the fingertips, like…See More

Using Reality TV To Reveal Your Personality

I've been fascinated by personality tests ever since I abandoned those quizzes where you try to find out the shape of your face. At this point in my life I don't care what shape my face is. Or what shape my whole head is for that matter. What am I, a professor of geometry?Personality tests, however, always extend the promise of deep and meaningful insight into what's been bothering you all these years. Even brief ones printed on bus panels are a catalyst for self-examination. One-panel versions…See More

If You're Wearing Houndstooth, You've Been Had

It's time to look at this fall's hot new fashions. I heard you've been feeling good about yourself and it's time to take you down a notch.Have you seen any of these clothes? We are told that "houndstooth is the new black." How many of you want to wear a skin-tight, fitted houndstooth suit? Nobody? Is that because you're afraid you would look like William Shatner playing a golf pro from an obscure foreign country visiting America to pick up tips?And that's just what women would look like.…See More

Do You Look Fat in That? Why Do You Care?

I wanted to buy a T-shirt saying “Does this T-shirt make me look fat?” except it was too small.It was my most recent low self-esteem shopping moment. Women have a lot of low self-esteem shopping moments thrust upon them by smart-alecky store mirrors and inner-demons.This is especially true when the mirrors are positioned under hideous florescent lighting, thereby giving our flesh the…See More

Hi Regina,

Just wondering - do we send our response to you?  Is there a specific guideline on length for the response?  Thanks and I look fforward to getting more of your prompts.  Be well.

I live in the Washington DC area, and I love when you're featured in Gene Weingarten's column, Below the Beltway. To be honest, I wasn't even sure you were a real person until I saw your post here. I thought maybe Gene made you up. Now I know I have many places to look for your opinions. Thanks for posting the series The Truth About Writing and Publishing.

Hi Regina! Cynthia just nominated you to edit Best American Essays in 2011 -- I read it on her SW page. Cool. Glad you are here -- and don't forget to nominate women or writers of color Houghton Mifflin Harcourt seems to be having so much trouble locating, and send your picks to Lori Glazer (head of publicity for HMH) at
