Snarky Reposition



It's dusty in here.

I've been busy and busier. During that time I have also begun to piddle diddle with another book.

When I first wrote The Boogie Man Is My Friend, or compiled it, actually, (as most of it was in my journals,) I was in a snarky mood. Reading it now, I think I seemed angry, compassionate, and burdened all at once. The burdens were the ones I carried all those years from my kiddo cases that are internalized by cops. Plus...I wrote all over the place, very disorganized...just like a real live serial killer. Maybe I was playing the part in my mind. Mwahahaha! If you can imagine all those emotions running through me, you can imagine a red hot candy laced with chipotle sauce and dipped in chocolate.That's what I was like.

That sounds kind of good, really.

Whee doggies. My mind channeling is all over the place at random times. If you can say anything about Fargo...it's that she is random and snarky. In case you haven't noticed, I don't have a filter.

The next book might not be for all. 
It's going to be small.
You can't buy it at a mall.
If you hate it: drop it down or just drink more alcohol.
Pleasing everyone is really not my protocol.
But pleasing some...
...brings better results and income.
Maybe I should write porn?

Yep. I am a born again poet. Here is the book in Haiku:

  • A warm feeling
    covers precious you in repose
    but only a dream

I am not ready to reveal the book right now. It's full of Fargo. And that's all I'm going to say about that. Just hope and pray I edit myself better.

Overall, I didn't think you sounded angry unless you were talking about a specific event that was deserving of your anger. I did pick up on the compassion and the burdens you carried. From the outside looking in, without the experience of ever being in law enforcement, I found your stories really interesting. I have to think that any of your readers that had mundane jobs such as mine (Realtor) it all sounded really fascinating.

Looking forward to the next book.

Cheryl, thank you so much. I am very humbled by your comment. I guess I am reflecting on my life after being a cop as I have very little edge and overdrive. Everything has mellowed and I had so much fire. Not that this is depressing or sad, but that I view things with a calmness I really never had as I was wound tight. I will always be a fireball, but when I reread the first book, I was surprised by my emotion, I guess.

And btw, your job is not mundane. I appreciate your line of work and you have to know a lot of technical, financial, urban, development, marketing, business management, planning, codes, customer service, legal stuff, etc. etc. Takes an intelligent person to do that job.

In reading your first book, I kept getting pissed off (like you really give a big, hairy rat’s ass whether I am pissed off or not). You would tell a story of give a great explication about why people do the things they do, then you would give a funny ‘cop comment’ followed by an apology. That pissed me off. Why did you have to apologize? You told everyone at the beginning that you were a cop, you had a cops since of humor, etc. It made you sound insecure and trying to please everyone. You can’t do that. All you have to do is please me (after all, the world is about me, ya know). I expected to read cop stuff, the bad and the dark humor and even a FMITA comments. Just don’t apologize for saying it. IMHO!

Momma Fargo said...

Thanks for the feedback, Coffey. I agree with you. Maybe I was insecure about publishing. In editing the first book again, I have deleted a lot of that nonsense.

MOmma Fargo:
(nah...must be a dream)

I think that the mood we find ourselves whenever we read something WE previously wrote depends on how we view it.
AT the time we wrote something, we MAY have been angry, frustrated, POP'ed, honked off...whatever.
But it was a way to let of some steam, and show others what the "deal" was at that time.
Funny thing about life...it's ALWAYS in a state of flux.
As it changes, we adapt accordingly (or else...lol).
When you speak from the heart...THAT is what matters, regardless of how you're feeling in the moment.
Sound about right?

Good post.
Roll safe & have a good weekend down there, dear.

Edgy yes, angry not so much. Obviously 'certain' incidents played more heavily than others. Looking forward to the new iteration! :-)
