I'm so happy, I've just got to tell somebody--and all the IRL people I know very well are conservative--so I'm going to share it here: I'm going to be published on a elderly liberals site! OMG! It's not for $$, but I'm so happy my article got picked, yay! (If interested in checking it out, it will go up next Tues., Sept. 18 on timegoesby.net; the title is "The Grapes Aren't Sour; They're Just Not On the Menu Often Enough" and I'm not sure if she's going to use my username for her site --officerripley--or my pen name Jane T. Godfrey or maybe even my real name.)
Now I now what the writer's (espec. an internet writer's) dilemma feels like; I'm already dreading the comments; the gal running the site is an old lefty liberal like me who I think maybe is living in a conservative area & does this site partly to keep sane; and there have been some mean ol' far-righters leaving some mean comments on it sometimes. But I'll just have to be strong, lol.
