have you seen my mommy?

I got dumped today. Do you know how much that sucks? I didn't get dumped by a guy (p-shaw) or a publisher or anything major like that, but I got dumped by an editor. Now granted that the editor in question is a busy lady with plans to return to school and that we allllll knew she'd be walking away eventually. However, considering that I've been with her since she started and she professed to "love" me, wanting to "keep (me) as long as possible" you would think that surely I would be made aware of her intentions before they occurred.

Not so!

All I can say is, I love my new editor to tiny bits and my senior editor is th cat's meow. The publisher is as professional as ever so the actions of the one are not related to the whole. But sheesh. Could she have not given me the courtesy of telling me I was motherless?

I think I'll be writing an email. I think it might employ guilt tactics. I think I'll go do that right now.

No mommy, huh? Poor thing. You're so damn good you barely need an editor anyway. I totally lust after your style. j

Am I disturbed because I find one woman saying, "I totally lust after your style" to another woman more than a little erotic?

Just curious.

Don't take it personal Mia, keep on keeping on.

Guilt tactics just might work.

J- with ample reason. Julia is foyne. Married, but luscious. I wrote her off loop to snark over what an ass-kisser she was. LOL. She's a pretty spectacular lady with a whole lotta talent.

I'm doing well, guys. My new editor is another person I've worked with, I like, and is a close friend in real life. It's all good.
