Why I'm loving the Christian Science Monitor today
When we write, we hope to varying degrees that we've touched people in some way, connected with someone, made someone's day a little happier. We love the personal letters in our inboxes, and the comments thanking us for providing a kindred spirit in the 3 AM crazies, troubled pregnancies, or fear of Midwestern hair.
So when we have the chance to reach a broader audience, we're always grateful. As I was when the Christian Science Monitor asked if they could republish my Sanctimommy essay. Only without the sex with Danny Bonaduce reference.
(They also asked me if I would like six billion dollars for it and I said nah, I'm happy just to be published. That's the kind of thing we writers do.)
And in a brilliant move right out of the Mom-101 playbook, the day it runs, I'm leading with a post about sex and chocolate with the f-word right at the top.
Sorry CSM readers. I swear I don't usually curse until at least the third paragraph.
