Writing And Despair Happy Hour (Part 1)

I was having a particularly bad day. Well lately they all seem to run together. My brain was not in the mood to do a thing. So I gravitated between cooking, reading, watching a DVD and peeking in on Absolute Write from time to time.

By mistake, cause my hand was on my mouse I clicked on a link to a thread that I really had no desire to read. There I was brought face to face with a particularly funny poster that made me laugh at its sad truth. On the bottom of this poster read - www.despair.com

So of course I had to go a see a web site whose name was Despair. Genius name and great site.
The Home Page opens with the quote:

"Welcome To Despair. The Relentless Pursuit of Dejection"
(I wish I thought of that!)

Now this site sells products really good professional looking products which all have to do with despair. Right up my alley!

I do not want to break any copyright rules here, so any pictures I am going to show have the web site name clearly printed on them - and will be linked to www.despair.com Still they are GENIUS.

Makes a great gift for dejected writers!

As for your site Teddy, I really enjoy coming here. I always seem to learn something new from your articles. As a newbie it's fantastic to be able to learn from the benefit of someone elses experience.
