Writing update

In case you missed it, I had just one publication last month:

Paying a Visit to Bittertown, The Nervous Breakdown, December 29, 2010

In this essay, I write about how rewriting and revising my memoir dredged up those old feelings of bitterness and resentment, especially regarding my ex-brother-in-law’s wife (Gee thanks for telling me I should wear more makeup!), as well as some new jealousy about a writer who seems to have had overnight success without really trying.  (Fuck you!)

In other writing news, my piece from March, “I’m Glad My Husband Cheated,” made The Frisky’s Top Ten Favorite and Most Talked About Girl Talk Columns of 2010!  Woohoo!

This month I’ve been concentrating on entering a few contests.  I’d also like to post again to The Nervous Breakdown, though what I’m not sure.  I have an essay that I’ve been working on for ages, but I think it’s too long.

After I enter the contests with January 31/February 1 deadlines, I plan on giving my memoir – which I “published” again on Lulu – one more once-through.  My goal is to have it available for sale in March.
