Melissa

Interesting! You have me intrigued by your premise examples, especially of the man with a lot of ex-wives who falls in love with his marriage-counselor neighbor. I can just imagine that will be an uphill battle! Are you writing this one? I hope. :)

I actually like writing blurbs, but my next worry is that I've promised more than I can deliver. There's always something to worry about. LOL

Donna Cummings

Melissa, I'm not actually writing any of those stories. At least I hadn't planned to. LOL You never know what my brain will decide to do though!

I hadn't thought about promising more than I can deliver. I always worry about making it sound too generic -- like it could be any story by anybody. LOL

And you're right -- there IS always something to worry about. We'll never run out of stuff to fret over.

Quantum

Donna, your patented Blurb-O-Matic sounds jolly useful!

I must have written hundreds of blurbs (abstracts) for scientific papers and lectures. There is always a temptation to describe what you would like to achieve rather than what has actually been achieved. This is particularly the case for conferences where the abstract is submitted well in advance and often before the work is completed.

I assume that the Blurb-O-Matic would correct for that. LOL

Like Melissa, I love the irony in the man with a lot of ex-wives who falls in love with his marriage-counsellor

I sense the germ of a best seller there. LOL

Donna Cummings

Q, being tempted by what you want to achieve -- I can definitely see how that could happen! But hey, it's not your fault if they're asking for info that far in advance. :)

And yes, I'll make sure there's a patch with the new Blurb-O-Matic that will fix that particular software glitch. LOL

Since both you and Melissa like my marriage counselor story, I might actually have to come up with something now. Mmm. I'll have to call you two Muse-O-Matic from now on!

Melissa

Muse-O-Matic...I like that. LOL Yes, do write that one! Just don't get all contrary and think it's an assignment now because we put in our request. LOL! It's YOUR idea!

Donna Cummings

LOL -- you know me too well. I do have that mile-wide contrary streak, and now you guys get to deal with it too. :) I've got a few other things I'm trying to work on, so I'm sure this idea will shove its way to the front of the line. LOL
