Those are notes my stepson took, reading my book. I am stunned. Just stunned.
I really don’t know what to say, exactly. He took notes because he is going to write the synopsis.

I asked him which stories he like the best. He likes the ones with calculation.
This was interesting. It is mostly women who read my stories and they like the men.
My husband was too emotionally charged to say much. The AMF thought the whole thing was high art.
I told him I wanted to leave the psychological complexity in. Like that guy in the Little Mike story. You can get your gaskets blown and some things are just not that simple.
He is not sure the message (what he thinks is the message) it tied together / shown. He named the message of my book, which is not anything I had thought of so I think this is what a person decides for themselves.
I asked my husband what the message was. “Life is a bowl of cherries”.
I really didn’t try to put a message in there. These stories are for entertainment, laughs, and whatever you may feel on your own.
It really is “food” left raw. The reader can make of it what they will.
I don’t know if this is unusual or what. The stories are funny and true. There is no doctrine I want to advance.
On a different note, I talked to denamaria about this the other night. She’s not read it but I have talked to her about it a lot.
She thinks people who want a bestseller – this is not for them. It’s for the person who really likes to read and find things out, they don’t already know.
Personally, I am sick over the whole situation. It’s just not fun or comfortable or a triumph or anything at this point. It’s an effort to discharge some duty I have so I can quickly move on, hoping the memory fades in days.
It’s just too painful. I don’t want to be associated with it anymore. I feel it will be bad for me, no matter what.

SaD, I don’t see a way it can be good. I’m just being candid.
The good thing will be that I got it done. Its been an open wound for 8 years…I really have had it. I am on far, far beyond my last nerve with this, which I know no one can understand.
I hope someone makes a movie. I think it would be really funny and great, but even in that case, I want to be far, far away.
It can be a movie for weirdos like Little Miss Sunshine. But I really can’t bear anymore around this, and that’s a fact.
I would answer questions…I am just trying to be completely candid here…I would answer questions if someone smart asked them, but these two-bit motherfuckers can kiss my ass!
Oh yeah, another thing. He didn’t ask any questions and people usually do. They mostly want to know became of people in the book. That or they want to ask about things that are not in there.
This may be because he is focused on writing the synopsis. He is clearly meaning to do an exceptional job, which I appreciate.
I am extremely fortunate he’s doing this for me. It’s not something I could do myself, unless the Holy Spirit came down and wrote the words for me.
Instead, the Holy Spirit sent my stepson and I am so, so grateful.

I loved Little Miss Sunshine, it’s one of my favorite movies. One interesting side effect of that movie however was that it increased the exposure of child beauty pageants.
I think your book would probably be one-of-a-kind because you’re depicting an example of a difficult life in an atypical manner, and how you still managed to do something constructive with your life.
Yeah, I don’t think there is anything like it – part of the problem. It’s like coming out with “All In The Family”, but with no backing, lol!
For the record, for you insiders, I never wrote a book. What I did was write a bunch of stories and someone else said, “This is a book”.
So this is a problem right there, with many. It’s not a traditional thing. It is stories that utterly and totally stand alone (like the stories I have already published), but in this case, the group of stories create something larger.
So there is just a million ways for small-minds to struggle. It’s a vehicle you can’t control. *I* am a vehicle you can’t control.
So I did this – I promised my husband I would push it out there – so you know I am going to do it.
From there, it’s up to whoever. I think someone could make a kick ass movie, maybe more than one, but I really don’t know how.
I have exhausted my talent. My talent is for living and storytelling. Everything else about this, I pretty much loathe and it’s gone on so long, and been postponed so long, I pretty much want to die.
…and I know that’s not good. That’s why I want to get it published as fast as fucking possible and then walk away.
