About Me

Simply Susan - Sweet Love Stories

I’ve always loved telling stories. My favorite is the one where I sent the wrong letter to the right boy. We were married the next summer. I attended LDS Business College where I earned an Associate’s in Computer Technology and Brigham Young University where I should have majored in English. I live on a lush farm in the heart of Virginia complete with rolling hills, two rivers, more trees than I care to count and a haunted house overlooking two cemeteries. When I’m not busy writing, I can be found chasing cows, fireflies, my four adorable children or my extremely hot husband.

Ouch

Someone didn't like my short story. I think I felt my first real pain over a bad review. Shaking it off. The rest of the people who read it, loved it. Just goes to show, you can't please everyone.

I had a short story published in an e-zine last year and got some great feedback on it. My mother? Really didn't like it. She found nice things to say about my writing because she's a good mum and all that, but it just wasn't her style or preferred genre. Everyone has different tastes.

But knowing that doesn't quite take the whole "ouch" out of the experience, does it?

Oh, I just looked. It was a guy who hated it. Big fat sigh. That explains everything.

I know, right? It's so much better to ignore all the bad stuff (says the girl who can't, ever).

My brother-in-law has had a few of his stories published and it took him quite a few tries before he found success but now he enjoys rubbing elbows with Orson Scott Card and the likes. Keep it up! And by the way, I want to read one of your stories!

Was it at LDSP's contest?

Funny-you misunderstood his comments. That was Th. and he voted for your story-he didn't dislike it at all.

It's true. I did vote for it. Just goes to show, I suppose.
