I don’t know how to feel about men cheating being different because of the emotional detachment.

Cheating is cheating in my eyes and there aren’t any excuses. That’s my opinion though. I just can’t wrap my mind around it being that I was raised by all women and see the hurt guys make them go through.

It sucks. What do you guys think?

Have you ever noticed how men will go literally crazy if he even suspects his woman is seeing someone else?  This man will shut all the way down on you and act like you committed murder or something!  I know that as women we really go crazy too but its something different when a man does it.  It seems like it take his whole soul out of him.  A man can cheat on his woman time after time after time and he says oh it was a mistake or just something that happened then proceed to continue on with his day like nothing happened.

Ladies I want you all to know that a quiet man is a man who is hurt.  As women we should all understand why though and if you don’t let me explain it to you.  Most women who cheat is already cheating for a reason in the first…

365 Challenge: Day 157 – Busy

This Is My Truth Now

Busy: having a great deal to do; occupied

busy

Today’s 365 Daily Challenge word is ‘busy,’ chosen because I feel like when someone asks me how I’m doing, all I ever respond with is 1 of 2 phrases: “I’m good, you?” or “I’m so busy.” Perhaps another day we’ll cover the former phrase, but today’s all about pushing myself and you to think about what being ‘busy’ really means, especially in today’s society. Let’s start from the very obvious point of view…

There are some basics to being able to survive once you’re born; you need food, water, shelter, oxygen and sleep. From that point forward, it’s about the surroundings you are born into, i.e. are you from a family with money, do you have any illnesses, or are you able to freely exist in that location. Some people are lucky — don’t need to work nor do they have any…

Anatomy of a Bad Review

Author Don Massenzio

online-reviewers Thumb up and down buttons

I’ve been blessed. I’ve written a number of books. I’ve been very fortunate. Readers that I don’t know have given my work reviews that have, in the vast majority, earned four or five stars.

That’s why, when I receive a bad review, I like to study it and figure out if there is something I can learn to improve my work.

Let Me Be Frank - CoverWhen I signed onto the Amazon author’s site, I saw this review for my second book, Let Me Be Frank:

bad review

I’ve redacted the name in this review. I didn’t want to make this post about the person who submitted the review, I wanted to make it a teaching moment.

First, I looked at the review. It’s titled ‘Boring’ and starts out with the words ‘too slow’. This is valid criticism for a book and sometimes, in a detective novel, the pacing can be…

“If You’re Not Outraged, You’re Not Paying Attention.”

Well said!!!

By Hook Or By Book

As many are already aware, yesterday afternoon Mr. Trump gave a press conference in the lobby of Trump Towers in New York City. Originally it was supposed to be focused on the administration’s infrastructure plans, but it quickly went off the rails due to Trump’s unhinged remarks and behavior. I’m not going to parse every abomination that came out of his mouth, as I suspect most of you have already seen the presser or read about it. You already know that instead of doing the right thing and unequivocally repudiating white nationalists and neo-Nazis, he made excuses for them and condemned what he called the “alt-left”, saying they were equally to blame for the violence in Charlottesville over the weekend. Insisting that some of the alt-right that descended upon this small quiet college town were “fine people” who were there to quietly protest the removal of Confederate statues, he pointed…
