So my mystery is who my birth parents are and why they gave me up for adoption. In effect, I want their story of who they were when I was born. (less)

Rejection and Criticism and Disappointment, oh my. . .

Two more rejections from agents sent me wallowing in my own misery for a few hours. (Occasional wallowing is fun and therapeutic. Just ask any hippo or rhino.) Then I rinsed off the psychic mud (how's that for an odd metaphor?) and went back to work. Options: 1--pull the covers over my head and give up because I'm a terrible writer and will never have a shot at publication. (Self pity is so not me Read more of this blog post »

Quotes by L.J. Cohen  (?)

“Ro counted to three, waiting for the station's tired AI to parse her request and decide to give her access. The round door irised in silence. Daedalus didn't even bother to acknowledge her. Wiggling her middle finger at the recessed ocular, she stepped through the opening into the central nexus. She needed to get as far away from her quarters and her father as she could despite the confines of the station.”
L.J. Cohen, Derelict

“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
Winston S. Churchill

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
Leonardo da Vinci

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
