May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

Yes, in this case, the whole plan seems to be: PROFIT!

I just cried in my tea as I spit it on the monitor

OK, so I seem to be writing a campaign-themed rom-com, even though my life has more com than rom. Basically, I've got a character whose high school bf resurfaced in a fit of nostalgia...she has a new boyfriend, so she lied about was just my instinct that she would, but I'm not sure why...

Well, not where I'm from. But maybe I'm not there anymore

That sounds fun, erika

You think? That's good to read, because it started as a combination of "write what you know," and something to think about when I am upset.

I miss my old writers group. I found it through RWA when I was living near Syracuse, and it was a few of the women from that chapter meeting I think it was twice monthly to talk and critique. We had a lot of fun, but we also really provided not only support but great critique on ideas and works in progress.

And right now, I am struggling to get writing again. I've been wrestling with one idea for too long, and I've started and restarted it about a dozen times now, and I can't get anywhere. But I feel like I'm in a bell jar. S. was a terrible husband but he was a great sounding board, and I used to bounce ideas off him all the time, and even talk through plot points.

Mostly I'm just whining, I guess. And trying to figure out how/if I want to start some kind of local group. Not that it's going to make writing any easier, but at least I'd have some company?

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

If you're writing something, um, erotic and need a euphemism for genitalia, here are some that have been used in fan fiction.
