My Big Fat Boring Life -At Coffeetime Romance

        I am amazed that so many people think authors have a glamorous life. In my case, nothing could be farther from the truth. Imagine a middle-aged woman in unattractive pajamas sitting at her computer with three dogs at her feet; one of which has a problem with flatulence. That woman would be me.

        Oh, sure, authors look good at book signings, but for many of us that’s the only time we tweeze our eyebrows, wear pantyhose, and exfoliate. And for someone who wears socks or sneakers around the house every day, putting me in low heels is tortuous. My last book tour almost crippled me.

        Most authors are not naturally witty and charming. Unless we’re very drunk, of course, but who wants to end the evening with puke in her hair? Plus, it’s not safe to drink on Zoloft.

        It’s not easy to be interesting .. to see the rest of the post go to Coffeetime Romance’s Blog

    “Get Drunk!”, by Charles Baudelaire

    One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters;
    that’s our one imperative need. So as not to feel Time’s
    horrible burden one which breaks your shoulders and bows

    you down, you must get drunk without cease.

    But with what?
    With wine, poetry, or virtue
    as you choose.
    But get drunk.

    And if, at some time, on steps of a palace,
    in the green grass of a ditch,
    in the bleak solitude of your room,
    you are waking and the drunkenness has already abated,
    ask the wind, the wave, the stars, the clock,
    all that which flees,
    all that which groans,
    all that which rolls,
    all that which sings,
    all that which speaks,
    ask them, what time it is;
    and the wind, the wave, the stars, the birds, and the clock,
    they will all reply:

    “It is time to get drunk!

    So that you may not be the martyred slaves of Time,
    get drunk, get drunk,
    and never pause for rest!
    With wine, poetry, or virtue,
    as you choose!”

    I liked the poem. I also liked your blog about your boring life. Sounds good enough for me. I am happy to be boring. My friends don’t think I am and thats okay. I also hang around my computer jotting down ideas for the next best seller ( I can dream can’t I?) I am usually found in my fat clothes and my lucky writers hat-Everyone needs a talisman. I am glad that i am not going to be chased by paparazzi they run faster than me and I would hate to lose that race.
