I am a writer. No, I'm not published and I do not make money from my writing. Repeated attempts to get the rat bastard to email me--both verbally and in writing--have gone unanswered. But I can sit at a computer and compose. I have a political science degree. Which means I can read, write and think. Which also means that I can be a "spin doctor." So, at this early hour when I should be asleep, it hit me--I know how to spin this divorce in my favor. There is a track record of emails with my attorney. There is evidence in writing of his ass-hole behavior. There is evidence of him cleaning out the bank account. But now, I'm going to play to my strengths and that of composition. I know how to do it. And I'm going to play to my strengths because I'm going to get what I want out of this divorce. Ok. Pep talk to myself done. Time to go write a rough draft--because that's what you do when you're a writer.

Often at the most unexpected times we find strength and get motivated. I am up for different reasons ( constant nightmares) but I am glad you are feeling this and taking action. Utilizing the skills you possess and fighting for yourself. I wish you all the best. Stay strong

That's right, Leia!!

I also enjoy writing, so we both know that the best ideas come at the most inconvenient times. Go for it!!

Love the pep talk.

GO FOR IT!! I'm loving the way you can look at your situation with a different "lens" and use your strengths to go get what you are entitled to!
