Hi Writing Friends! Long Story Short Newsletter

Happy Mother’s Day!

May, 2011 – Issue 95

Editors Corner
Linda Barnett-Johnson
– Dear reading and writing friends. I would like to send my prayers and condolences to all those that were affected by the floods, storms, and tornadoes. Wow! It has been a scary time. Please know that I think of you and hope that you are all right. You will continue to be in my prayers for recovery and faith.

Denise Cassino – We’re finally getting winter in Colorado! Snow most days for the last week and a half- but I’m not complaining – it’s bringing much needed moisture. Our little candytufts are poking their lacy heads skyward and the anemones are proudly displaying their lavender petals – spring must be near! Happy Mother’s Day everybody!

Amy S. Pacini – May is a beautiful month to recognize and honor all the wonderful women in our lives as we celebrate Mother’s Day. Mothers are natural caregivers who gently guide us and patiently perform selfless acts of love, kindness, and compassion. They generously offer a helping hand, comforting shoulder, listening ear, warm hug, and beaming smile to everyone around them. Whether they are near or far, show your love and appreciation for your mother with a phone call, surprise visit, special dinner, flower bouquet or a heartfelt card. In remembrance of mothers who are no longer with us, we honor their cherished memories and beloved spirits which shall always dwell in our hearts. Let us also reverently pay homage to our U.S. soldiers on Memorial Day who died serving our country.

Ask Grizzly Gus

Dear Grizzly Gus:
I'm hoping you can settle an argument. While I'll admit I've gotten most of my ideas for my stories from my companion, I'm the one who has had to do all the writing, typing, proofreading, and mailing to publishers. Now when I'm starting to get published, my poodle Snookums is demanding I list her as co-author on these works. We got into a heated argument and now she's not talking. I want to be fair, but don't you think she's crazy believing she's entitled to half the rights to these stories?
Signed: Deborah 'being dogged,' in Denver, CO.

Dear Deborah:
Even if Snookums isn't entitled to half the rights to these stories, you need to recognize her as a contributor and I do believe she's entitled to some compensation - you might 'throw-her-a- few-bones,' as the saying goes. I seriously doubt she'd take you to court though she might chew up a pair of your shoes.
As to you poodle's noodle - the latest school of thought is that dogs do share the same personality traits as their owners. My pooch for example is an underachiever, only wanting to be fed and have their belly rubbed, just like me. Based on your letter I'd say you should get your crazy canine to a mental health center as soon as possible and be sure and sit in on all the sessions yourself.
Signed: Grizzly 'dog-gone' Gus.
