Life IS art...

I watched "Catfish" the other night...this movie epitomizes the reason why I write the short stories I do.


There is no better story than the real ones...the "I've temporarily lost my mind and done this outlandish thing" or "I was born this way and was never taught any better" tales that shock us into laughter and the retelling of things we've thought about doing or saying, but never had the guts or the temporary "filter meltdown" to.

I've had some very "real moments" I'd like to forget...and I'm sure anyone who saw them either wishes they hadn't or had something to talk and laugh about for the next few days.

What is your most memorable "real moment"?

My real moment is probably now. My husband lost a job and it really has me thinking about conflict in my stories.

You had left a comment on my blog about beta readers. A beta reader is just someone who reads your script and gives their opinion. Good ones are hard to come by. You can hook up with some online or through writing orgs.

Do I have to pick just one? =(
This is going to be a long night as memories flood out of their vault...
