I'm meeting my new nephew next week--he's only a few weeks old. I hate to say it, but I don't love newborns. They're sort of boring and ugly and just kind of lay there, eat and sleep. I never really thought babies in general were all that great. Hence why I never had any myself I guess.

I don't understand people who think having kids is the greatest thing a woman can do in life. I can't have kids. Does that make me less of a person then?? Yes, MIL, I'm talking about you. I'm glad SIL is so awesome because she popped out another kid. That doesn't mean she's somehow better than I am. Rant over.

I take 1 No-doz a day just to function. I'm so tired all the time I could die. I do smoke cigarettes. Doctors don't know what's wrong with me. I don't drink or do any drugs. Help! I'm 49.

My old boss (16-17 years ago) is now a romance/erotica (are they the same?) novelist. Like a successful one. Since she sold her business at that time, she's had about 50 books published and made the NYT best Sellers list. Pretty awesome for her. BTW, the business she owned, that I worked for, was completely unrelated to erotica or writing/books. It was a small office, so we worked pretty closely together, literally and figuratively. I have no idea how she got her foot in the door.

So, basically I wanted to write and went on a freelance writing sites such as Upwork, Flexjob,etc. I was noticing a lot of entries for erotica gigs. I did the research and read some other writers' works. I had to do entry level jobs at first, it really didn't pay much but the experience helped. I also joined writer groups so we could critique our work. I haven't self-published yet, I want way more experience before taking that big leap. At the moment, I am ghostwriting erotica works freelance and I hope I get enough confidence to go full-scale and put out a piece on amazon. It's tough but it's possible. You won't get much money at first, but little by little, the experience adds up and then the money starts to pick up.

My dad suddenly really got into genealogy and bought a subscription to Ancestry.com. He wants me to join too, but honestly I don't care that much. At least not enough to pay money to find out more about people I barely know.

In response to a confession. Okay no effing way. You get paid to write erotica? How? I have been interested in doing this for years but don't know how to start. I have a knack for this genre. LOL. Please share some info.

I was 22 when I got rejected for this job I REALLY wanted. My dad said it was because I didn't pray hard enough or go to church. He went on this tangent. It got so bad I started crying and my boyfriend (husband now) was overhearing this phone call and everything my dad was saying and was just disgusted by him. Well, long story short-I get paid to write erotica now.

I am so sorry about the 21 year old who got fired. That is so hard. It's a very tough world right now and all our young adult kids have such a hard path at work. Wishing her and you only the best! Corny but true: it was not the right job and the right one will come along.

She got a job! She's waitressing at the restaurant that used to be the dive bar that I used to get shit-faced in and sing Sheryl Crow on karaoke night many many moons ago. LOL. She's also waiting to hear back from another interview for a daytime position at a call center. She's also going to start trying to sell custom pet portraits, she does an amazing job of capturing pet 'souls' in pencil and ink. She makes them as gifts sometimes, and I've been telling her for years now she should try to sell them. So we'll see.
