    Amazing! We have all been in that spot, maybe not to that severity, feelings for someone we knew would end in disatser. Maybe this is the beginning of a novel…

    I have written a short story that I have never shared. You have inspired me, I am going to set up a place for it on my blog and will post it.

      HI Paige – I am so glad you dropped by and liked the story. You have an incredible writing talent – post it and let the world hear your voice. Hmmm, what an interesting idea you had…novel…I will think on this!

  2. That is an interesting story and I agree that this could be the send off for a novel. I really wanted her to tell him to get lost.

  3. Paige Morgan says:

    Jennifer – you inspired it and I have posted a short story: “Her Life” Let me know what you think.

    Hi Jen!

    Woooo….the readers anticipation of her decision throughout the story was done so well. LOVED the line – He became everything that kept me from real life – WOW.

    Thanks for sharing!

      HI Liz, Thanks SO much, I am glad you enjoyed it. Am waiting on another story for LASR. I haven’t seen you in so long – are you coming to the November writer’s meeting?

  5. […] reading the short story of a Writing Mama, I decided to go out on a limb and post one of my short […]

  6. Liz says:

    I’ve been meeting to revise a short story for LASR as well – you know a woman’s world reject from ages and ages ago – lol

  7. Wendy Marcus says:

    Great story, Jen. I could really feel the woman’s inner turmoil. I wanted her to tell him to get lost too! But we don’t always do what we should.

  8. Great story. Yes, definitely send it to LASR. Or maybe TWRP. They have rosette things. I don’t know how short, but short.

    But yes, I’m with Janet and Wendy. It’s a booty call. “Get lost” is not exactly the two words to him that I have in mind!

  9. Wow!
    Is there a continuation of this somewhere? *sigh*

  10. Lauren Elizabeth says:

    He doesn’t deserve her! I would tell him to do more than just get lost if I was her!

    • Jennifer says:

      HI Lauren! I’m so glad you enjoyed the short story!! Thanks for commenting – sometimes a character needs to keep making mistakes until she knows she needs to move on. I wanted to show that struggle since we have all been there and it’s completely human!

  11. Jessica says:

    I loved it… I got all excited and then it was over 🙁 lol I understand where the other girls are saying its a “booty call” but I guess Im a hopeless romantic at heart. He might have changed and it could be something great. Even though they usually realize it when its too late and the girl moved on. I really hope this could turn into something that we can read because Im interested in their future. Pray and hope he’s learned his lesson. If it turns into a book, I’d read it. 😀

    • Jennifer says:

      SO happy you loved the story! In my mind, they’re meant to be together…so I hope it worked out for them too! Hmm, will have to think about extending it into a novel!!

  12. Jen says:

    Whew … I think I held my breath from start till finish. I so relate with her and have given in to the man I love over and over till we found our happiness together! I just completed the marriage series and I’m so in love with that whole family! I can’t wait for Juliette’s story!!

  13. Jennifer Kominczak says:

    Wow… I sooo want to know what happens next!!!! The romantic in me would like to see that he has changed and proves his love for her because it sounds like she is broken or almost there – and all by his doing. But who could resist the love of your life? Oh lordy – This needs to be a novel!!!
    Love all your books!

    Jennifer ;o)

    Loved it! I’ve loved all of your books that I’ve read so far! They just pull me in and I feel like I just know the people in them!
