Working Title

“You know, some people say life is short and that you could get hit by a bus at any moment and that you have to live each day like it’s your last. Bullshit. Life is long. You’re probably not gonna get hit by a bus. And you’re gonna have to live with the choices you make for the next fifty years.” ~ Chris Rock in the movie I Think I Love My Wife

Winter Schminter. It’s brainstorming season! As mentioned in my May 13th blog (5 write-ups below this one), I have a book idea. Since May, the idea has continued to take form. I have a working title that I’m excited about and the bare bones of a book proposal. Earlier this year I thought, I’ll get to it when I do, but now I’m determined to see it through. Here’s to finding—no, making—time to complete it in 2020. The working title is:

Sex on a Spreadsheet*: Using Practical (as Opposed to Magical) Thinking to Make or Break** Your Marriage

By Samara O’Shea, LCSW

*Making of an actual spreadsheet not required. Smart phone apps and/or pen and paper will do.

**Why risk breaking your marriage? Because life is long and best spent in supportive, enjoyable company.

P.S. I do not yet have the LCSW credential. Another thing that will happen in 2020! I just wanted to see what the letters would look like next to my name.

P.P.S. I hope you, too, have a project that you’re excited about as the New Year encroaches!
