LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER

I received an e-mail early this morning from "Listen to Your Mother St. Louis", that I will not be reading my story at the taping on May 11th. Congrats to all the ones who will be reading and I intend to be there, listening and applauding! 



(I'd already psyched myself up that I wasn't going to make it, so it wasn't a disappointing surprise. Honest!)

  1. Well, I'm a little disappointed for you. I'm sure that other opportunities are just over the horizon though.

  2. Bummer! I was rooting for you. But that seems to be the norm with this writing life. I agree with Debora and opportunities being just over the horizon.

  3. I agree with Audry and Debora. Did anyone we know make it?

  4. Can I show my bias and say they made a poor decision.
    Regardless, I love that you are going to be there applauding (and not throwing eggs?). Sorry, bad joke.
