A Question…
Friday, March 25th, 2011

[Psst! Yesterday’s contest runs through today. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow morning! So be sure to post a comment for a second chance to win!]

I woke up late today. I was a little worn out.

Yesterday, I spent the day trying to find a doctor to accept the red-headed hellion as a patient. She has stomach issues and no insurance. Yesterday, things came to a head when the clinic she has been going to told her she needed to go to her family care doctor even though she was in pain and becoming dehydrated. Well, she was going to them because she didn’t have a family doctor! Every doctor we contacted had waiting lists of three to five weeks for new patients. So, I took her to the emergency room. And guess what? They couldn’t run any tests either, even though I had my checkbook handy.

Red and I were seriously discussing sending her to Ireland. She has dual citizenship, and there, she has a right to health care. It may still, in the long run, be cheaper for me to pay for a round trip ticket for her to go there for testing and any surgery she may need. But we did find another group doctor clinic. I had to be the mean mama at the front desk, asking them what the hell we were supposed to do to get her seen by someone when she’s in pain.

And we don’t need health reform? Shame, shame, shame!

So, off my soapbox. Y’all know I don’t get political here. And I do have a very important question to ask you. ;)

If you were to write a book, what would you choose as the topic? (Now, you could choose fiction or non-fiction—just something you would be passionate about writing!)

    I don’t write but if I did it would probably be something to do with Science Fiction and animals *leaves the book writing in the family to her daughter*

    I am definitely not a writer, but would probably choose to write about the unfairness of the Social Security system.

    I couldn’t write for all I’m worth but I do enjoy paranormal romances, and those with vampires and werewolves are my favorites.

    Romance – M/F – Mystery – Paranormal. Topic – girl knows boy but boy doesn’t know girl. How is the possible? There are more than one of her but she isn’t twins or triplets. How is that possible? She has no visible means of income and yet always has money to spend. Where does it come from?
    Been rolling this around in my head for months but nothing has ever come out on paper :(

    I’m late on this one and I know you don’t get political on here. Just wanted to say as someone without insurance who has stomach issues I know what your daughter is going through and I empathize completely. If she needs someone to commiserate with, send her my way.

    Now, onto the question… I want to write fiction, romance, with many sub-genres (erotic, contemporary, suspense, paranormal, and historical. I’d also like to write non-fiction. I’d like to tell the story of what it was like to watch my aunt battle ovarian cancer and ultimately lose the fight. How her cancer effected all of us. It’s a tough story, but one I hope to tell someday.
