The First Lines of Emails I've Received While Quarantining

I don't know why this poem makes me giggle so hard (written/posted by @jessica_salfia on twitter)...it's not like it's that funny. Nonetheless, I'll leave this right here. Sorry it's blurry:

In other news, Chasing Echoes was selected for a featured promotion for Book Bub! I'd love to say they just recognized it's awesomeness and chose it right away, but...no. The book was rejected several times prior, so maybe it finally had enough reviews to be taken seriously. Or maybe it's because Black Lilies is out, and having two books makes you appear more legitimate as an author. Or maybe I just finally wore them down. I don't care, I'm just thrilled it was finally accepted.

Semi-related-but-not-really, this commercial just now came on while I was typing:



Tearjerking stuff, right? 😂

  1. Hard no on the TP commercial. Lol! The poem left out “in these challenging times” but I love the repetition of the last line. :)

    I would be so so happy if one just one email opened with: “in these apocalyptic times, here are random photos of trees for no reason to distract you.” Would make my day. ^_^

    1. Oh come on Krystal, you don't want to #ShareASquare? 😂

      You are so right; "In these challenging times" is the #1 email opener I see in my work inbox. It's right up there with "Just a friendly reminder..." (I always want to respond to that one with "What does a neutral or unfriendly reminder look like?).But yeah, I think the repetition of that last line is what what made me giggle so hard. Though nothing tops your email opener with the apocalypse and trees. I'd give my left nut to see that. (Not much of a commitment though since I don't have nuts).
