Writer's Block: The long and winding road
Are there any difficult events in your past that made you a stronger person today? If you could go back and erase them, would you?

If I knew then?   I married a person that I thought would be a good father to my children since, at that time, I was tired of dating and going to school and wanted to get married and start a family.  My first child is now grown and a complete societal misfit.  She has a spectrum of neurological, emotional and physical problems.  I have raised her three kids.  My second third and fourth children were stillborn because of the RH factor.  Then I had a healthy girl through AI who is healthy and beautiful and successful.  I believe that there is more to life than falling in love and doing what seems right at the moment.  I feel absolutely sure that I should not have married the person I did and that God, or Mother Nature, or some higher power went out of their way to prove that to me and to the rest of the world.  I will die believing this.  I call it the genetic imperative and I guess some people will say that is politically incorrect.  No one has ever been able to explain to me why the RH incompatibility occurs and why some people are positive and some negative.  Long before I even met this person, I can remember, in a Microbiology class, typing our own blood and laughing when it turned out I was RH negative.  One girl began to cry when hers said negative because she was engaged at the time and she was afraid all her babies would die. There was 'writing on the wall' somewhere, and I wish someone had pointed it out to me.

Writer's Block: Life's lessons
If you could confront the worst teacher you've ever had, what would you tell him or her?

I don't really care if I'm only five.  Show me some respect.  Maybe a little extra respect.  You already know I'm smarter than you.

Writer's Block: Breaking the habit
I seem to have fear of rejection.  Can't imagine why, but  it has to be why I have so much trouble writing query letters.  I have no trouble blogging which seems contradictory.  And I am sure I am phobic about making phone calls.

Writer's Block: How could you?
Y' know?  "How could you?"  If you asked him that, you would not even need to hear the answer.  You already know what he would say, right?  It wouldn't be his fault, would it?   I even let him talk me out of throwing him out after I'd given a lawyer a retainer, and I will die wishing I hadn't stayed with him.  Oh, sure!  There are ways to even up the score, and it helps the wounded ego on a superficial level, but the truth is, I deserved better.  Just call me "Rue".

Writer's Block: Rise and shine
What's the first thing you do when you wake up?

Throw back the covers.

Writer's Block: Dream or Reality?
This has no relationship at all with Writer's Block.  Why is it part of the title?  I have had dreams that I have had to ask the people involved if it did indeed happen or was a dream.  It most cases it was a dream, or so they reassured me.  One event, still, from the past, I am sure was reality.  My life involves psychoactive medications at times, so this could be a mititgating factor.  But my life remains interesting, not just to me.
