Remember when I told you that I was pursuing a career in writing? Well, I thought you might be interested in getting a sneak preview of my first book. It’s a spoof of self-help books. Readers will learn how to improve their lives by deflecting responsibility and blaming others. My book outlines how to effectively blame the three most common “Blamies”: “The Man”, your mother and religion in significant areas of life such as weight/appearance, personal relationships, work, finances and sports. The first draft is finished and is currently being reviewed by two friends (thanks Pam and John). As you can see, I’m still very early in the process.
Ironically enough, I was inspired to write this book after reading “I Can Do It” by Louise Hay – a motivational book that focuses on the value of positive affirmations and is the antithesis of my first book.
Some may find it curious why I’m not writing about Human Resources. I will be. Those books are coming next – but they won’t be typical or serious as I plan to continue in the humor genre. There’s a myth that Human Resource professionals don’t have a sense of humor. The truth is that we do – the outside world just doesn’t see it very often because of our need to be sensitive to others. Since I’m not actively practicing HR, I see no reason to put all my hard earned Psy-Ficology to waste!
I hope you enjoy this little film that I made through xtranormal.com (GREAT website) that encapsulates the essence of my book. It is entitled “It’s Not My Fault”. Note how our heroine deflects responsibility and assigns blame, how she effectively utilizes the three Blamies and how her life is improved because of it. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I will let this movie do the talking for me.
I would sure appreciate it if you would tell your friends about this post and visit again or subscribe. New posts are added every week. Building a following on this blog may eventually help me sell my book.
And one more thing – let me know what you think by casting your vote at the poll shown below. Comments are also appreciated.
May the farce be with you!
Your IFF and Psy-Ficologist,
Next time we go back to a Blog Story (BS) where I will be talking about roaches – the kind with legs.
If you want to view the film directly on Xtranormal or Youtube, do a search for “It’s Not My Fault By Pam Waits”.
