It's never 'different'

Everyone thinks that their case is 'special' or 'different' from every other instance of [insert situation here] on the face of the earth.  The fact is, your situation probably isn't different or special.  If you did something shitty to a friend, you did something shitty to a friend.  It doesn't matter whether you 'meant' to do it or not, or if you think that you had special circumstances.  There are certain rules in friendships, and when you ignore them, you've got to be willing to face the consequences.  Those consequences will likely include the end of that friendship.

Believe me, I know.  I've unintentionally done shitty things to friends, and had to give up friendships.  Luckily, I think I've learned from those mistakes, because I have never repeated them.  Unfortunately, I lost some really good people from my life.

So why am I blogging about this on a 'writing blog' day?  Well, I haven't written anything!  I've been busy moving and unpacking.  But there is a story percolating inside my brain... and I'm almost ready to write it.

You really shouldn't mess with a writer.  Fiction is a great place for revenge!

You might even end up on their blog...

Good luck with your unpacking. I moved like every six months for years. Because there's just always something a little better...

Your blog is fantastic! I stalked you from over at Elana's blog! I love meeting new writers!!!

You're so right, don't mess with a writer, you never know when you'll end up in a novel, and not always in a good light! Or even in their blog (like Jolene said!)

Good luck with packing, I'm doing that in about two months and I'm sure writing will take a back burner. Look forward to hear when the writing bug has hit and you're back at the computer with the unpacking hopefully complete!
