    Hi Craig,
    Good for you for

    Hi Craig,

    Good for you for making this happen! I like your title; alternatively before I read your idea I was thinking about how Donna calls you "Lion" + thought about "The Lion DOESN'T sleep tonight" - You know that old song but changing it a little.

    All the best with this endeavour.

    Love it
    Anne,

    What a great title:

    It also would go along with the "Relay for Life" Where they walk at night because cancer also does not sleep!


    hugs,

    Sue

    Wow - this is some good stuff!

    Please, please keep sending in your thoughts and ideas - it's a great sounding board and I knew that I could count on you guys to tell it like it is.

    All of your ideas have been good. I'm enjoying reading them and seeing the perspective "from your eyes."

    I'll have a lot to think about - have done some research on what it takes to get a book published and how to find a literary agent.

    I'm in a whole new world, well actually I'm on the outside looking in - scary and exciting at the same time!

    A big thank you and please keep your ideas coming...this book is being written with all of us in mind - I need all of you along for this rollercoaster ride...please keep all hands and feet inside the car while the ride is in motion, LOL:)

    Hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew:)

    Semi;colons Rock!

    -Craig

    Oh well.
    Oh well.

    I thought you'd go with the "CraigsList" one, but.....

    How about:

    "Hindsight" A look into my wrecked rectum.

    "No Butts About Us" Tails from the past.

    "No Passing" A new world without the crap.

    "My rear view of life" A book about my half-assed situation.

    "The Rectum Whisperer" Words cannnot make up for waste.

    "Shortened exits" Intestinal fortitude at it's best.

    Gee Craig, your comment:
    "Hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew"
    was reminescent of Marv Albert's famous situation. In a slightly
    different context, of course....



    I'll stop now..... my head hurts.

    I think the book is an
    I think the book is an awesome idea. I was desperate to hear how others were doing and handling things and this site has been great. I'm sure insights into your own personal journey in book form will be helpful to alot of people. My first gutt feeling when Jim was diagnosed was that there was an "unwelcome stranger" who had moved in the house with us. That Cancer. Always there lurking, disrupting our thoughts, there when we ate or talked or tried to sleep. Unwilling to leave. So my pitch for a title would be something to do with that unwanted or unwelcome stranger.
    Good luck...I imagine this will be very theraputic for you as well.

    Craig, I am so glad that
    Craig, I am so glad that you are seriously considering writing a book. You have a talent that could help a lot of people. When I was first DX I ran out and bought lots of books about cancer. (I still buy books). A couple of them really helped me with this battle. I like your title, and look forward to reading your book. Brenda

    You have some awesome titles. Where did you come up with these? If you thought of these on your own than you should write a book too :)
