What Should I Write About?

Poppets, I could not think of what to write about today. All I could think about was research for paid writing, and Anielskie Single's chance to win the Najlepsza Książka Katolicka contest.

Anielskie Single is also up for a big Catholic publishing award in Warsaw (Best Book by Foreign Author), but as only the judges can vote in that, there's no point getting all flustered about it. I suspect the bee-oo-ti-ful trophy would go not to me, anyway, but to my marketing director. However I will now imagine myself in gold lame making an acceptance speech in comical but heart-stirring broken Polish.

"Chciałabym dziękować akademii..."

Oh dear. Now I am imagining my Polish tutor at a table covering his head in abject embarrassment. Why is he there?

Well, anyway, I must not rest on my laurels, especially as I haven't won them yet, so let me know what you think I should write about tomorrow.

Debate the issue in the combox.

How about some news on that "rhymes with a itch" and her discernment partner?
Or what to do when you are in your twenties and the only members of the oposite sex asking you out are either teenagers or old enough to be your father.

I vote for tips on "long distance relationships": the what you should dos and what you shouldn't dos, as well as when they're acceptable/if they can be unacceptable, or anything that you can think of, as you probably have more ideas than I!

I think you should write more tips on being seraphic even when you feel anything but. Ways to increase one's seraphic quotient, etc.

Tell us what to do with about guys with eyes. I.e.--at Mass, or in a large lecture room, or some similar situation where introductions are not part of the order of the day, but the same people keep coming back--there are always those guys who look at you, but not long enough for you to smile back or say hi, and who for whatever reason won't come up an introduce themselves. Must one simply ignore them? Can one drop a handkerchief or car keys or something on the floor when they are nearby? Does one hover near doorways and bump into them accidentally? Or (shudder) walk up out of the blue and introduce oneself?

I vote for picking back up on that story about the Vocation Discernment Partner. :D

Another vote for the Vocation Discernment Partner story!

What to do about guys who text relentlessly instead of calling or asking you out. Or chat or email or whatever when there is an acceptable alternative.

How about people after they break up? I have a friend who avoids the guy she used to date at all costs. They have been broken up for awhile, but we have a small Catholic circle and she won't go to things when she thinks he will be there. It makes it hard to plan things--she is my roomate and he is my boyfriends friend. Has this happened to anyone else? aah the complications of life.

These are all very interesting. I'll be back after I go on a fact-gathering country hike with B.A.

Emma (you know, the one in your book) said...

I'll add my vote for the continuation of the VDP story!
Also, how to be seraphic when your friend complains to you about all the great Catholic men who ask her out... and she's not open to dating right now as she's actively visiting religious communities - and you've not gone out with a GCM well, ever.
