loveHave you noticed the profusion of Happy (and Unhappy) Valentine’s Day greetings posted today?

From those who revere the holiday to those who abhor it?

I find it oddly amusing when people say they don’t like Valentine’s Day because IT makes them feel unloved, unwanted, uncherished, lonely, etc.

This just in . . .

Valentine’s Day does not make us feel good, bad, happy, or sad.  IT is not doing anything to us.  WE make ourselves feel whatever emotions WE attach to the day by the thoughts WE choose to think.

Happiness (and unhappiness) is never in things, places, events, holidays, food, possessions, people . . . it is in us.

Or it isn’t.

Quote:  “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”  ~ Eleanor Roosevelt.

All we need is LOVE . . . and Happiness.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

No rules.  Just write!

If you’re a writer, having time to write is soul satisfying ~ it’s the piece of cake.

Getting paid to write is the icing on that cake.

For writers, the right way to ask for money . . . is the write way to ask for money.

Check out this ad for freelance writing work that Connor posted on Craig’s List and shared on Cities of the Mind. 

Its divine design allows prospective clients to see what Connor would bring to each assignment . . . CREATIVITY!

I need money. Yes, that’s right. I need a job so that I can afford to work.

I’ve got a job dealing cards, as you may already know, given that I have regaled you all with the resulting tales of adventure and danger. I may start substitute teaching soon, too. I may have a one-time gig fixing tents. I’m considering the merits of building and selling really cool cat jungle gym things.

But I have been feeling like I should maybe do something that invo … Read More
