    God, I love this. Irreverent humor is my thang. Also, saying, "thang" which most people find annoying. YOU, on the other hand, are not annoying. You are brilliant.

    I seem to remember a commercial for a Kindle that has a "paper white" screen. It's made for reading in sunlight. But that's the only device I know of that addresses this problem.  Not my problem by the way. I'm with Sheldon Cooper who said, "If God...

    Such a great opportunity! Wish I were further along with my manuscript, but hopefully you'll alert us to more contests like this in the future. Congratulations to the finalists! Very exciting!

    I'll give that a try- writing as if no one will ever read it. I've gotten that advice before: "Just get it written," so maybe it's time to pay attention and do it. Honestly, though, I do hope it will be read someday by other parents dealing with the...

    yeah- I have a tough time with "shoulds," too. Thanks for letting us know we're not alone if we don't write everyday.

    L.I.E.- I immediately got it. But then again I grew up off of exit 52.   I found it easy to write the titles (actually, headlines) for my newspaper columns but the title of a book is so much more daunting. It's like naming a child. One of my sons...

    I'm in the process of writing mine and am a little stuck because most of my story revolves around my son. I don't want to embarrass him. I certainly can't wait for him to die, so I suppose I'll have to force myself to carry on and then decide what...
