Dianna Graveman's Magical Breasts

      Get an image of Dianna Graveman in your head. Super-smart. Uber-talented. Co-editor of two Not Your Mother's Book anthologies. Owner of her own editing and design business. Got it?

     Now, imagine that her breasts are able to win a gold medal in a target practice. Imagine they can aim and hit a bullseye across a table. Imagine they are capable of shifting the way people think, the way people perceive things.

This collection includes stories from Tammy Goodsell (her story is the first one, and darn it, they included a photo of her
in her pajama jeans, and she promised it was a terrible picture but of course, she looked cute as a button), Linda O'Connell, Alice Muschany, Mary Horner, Dianna Graveman and moi...

 When I read the stories written by my writing friends, I enjoyed them all.  They were all witty and well-written. However, when I read Dianna's story, I was lucky I was not drinking milk at the time. Otherwise, I would have snorted it out of my nose. The ending is hilarious, and it made me have a completely different opinion of Dianna.

How about NaNoWriMo? Are you doing it? If so, what is your story about? Share, please...

  1. I may just have to drop what I'm reading in order to find out about Dianna's talented breasts. And that one can be filed under "sentences I never thought I would write."

  2. Tammy--The talent her chestal area holds is no threat to your talented sphincter. Have no fear...

    1. I read it and you're right! I laughed until tears ran down my face.

  3. Dang! And I thought MINE were talented because of their penchant for boob-dialing when I drop my cell phone in a shirt pocket. I have placed this modern classic in my Amazon cart, and will be making an order before the weekend is over. No NaNoWriMo for me. I need to make it NaNoReaMo.

    1. Val--Thanks for your patronage. I'm sad you're not doing NaNo, but perhaps you ARE working on some collection of Val-isms?

  5. Wow! Talk about an attention-grabbing headline that makes me want to read Dianna's story.
    Wish I could do NaNo, maybe next year.

    1. Donna--Dianna's story is quite funny, and it's even funnier because it shows a different side of her. It's well worth the read.

  6. I read it as "beasts" at first, so when I saw "breasts" I had to do a double take. LOL No NaNo for me this year. Too much other stuff going on.

    1. Lisa--Yes, I've started, but I think it's only time before I crash and burn this year (kids and grandkid coming for Thanksgiving for a week or TWO!). However, I think I might have a story idea that I'm willing to keep on working on long after NaNo is over.

    1. Mama Zen--If I wrote poetry like you do, I'd stay away from NaNo, too.
