Chapter 8, Page 22 Sad movie

Mary gets emotional.

It doesn't really help to point out that it's just a story. Even with that knowledge firmly in place a good story will still affect Mary as if it were real. And she's easily affected by sad things. Rather annoying, actually. (To her as well as everyone around her.)

Note, next Monday the new chapter starts. Back to the old familiar layout.

Oh, yeah: I remember that sort of thing. That sort of sensitivity is a gift, in a way - but leaning to manage it is an effort.

Being that sensitive definitely is a gift, especially as a writer/artist.

ALthough I must admit, it's a pain sometimes to keep the tears from flowing.

@Journo and Dad: And a lot of people seem to find it annoying to be around me when I react to sad movies.

Then again, sometimes I cry at happy movies, too.
