Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

A to Z Challenge—S.K.-isms! X is for . . .



X is for x-pionage. That’s right: spying on your ex. Example:


There are crazy people out there. You know it. I know it. We’re probably part of the group, but if you’re not confessing, neither am I. Some do take it a step further, say . . . like become obsessed with their significant others. Err . . . even after that significant other has moved on from the relationship. Wonder why that might have happened?

Anyway, these crazies may, on occasion, engage in x-pionage. Why? Well, I suppose to check out the competition, to see if they still have a chance, to feel superior that they’re doing better than their ex, I don’t know. Whatever their reasons, I don’t care. I’m just here to provide a word for what they’re up to. And now you’re a witness that I’ve (not sure if proudly) contributed something to the world of the craycray.


*S.K.’s original. I’m on “X” guys, I’m tired. This is what you get :P

  5. This is a fantastic word, and made all the more possible in this day and age thanks to Facebook. I have no desire to participate in any kind of x-pionage - let the past stay in the past!

  8. X-terminate = killing your ex. X-cel = 1. calling your ex repeatedly. 2. locking your ex in jail. X-pectorant = spitting on your ex.

    I could keep this up all day.

  13. "I'm just here to provide a word for what they're up to." You're doing a public service, you are.

    Silver Fox has a good Xtra, though, with the X-pectorant.

    I (she sniffed loudly, nose in the air) would never condone such practices, of course. But I know people who would . . .

    1. Oh Silver Fox improvised and made my line of "X" even better!

      Oh course you wouldn't. Who would? But we're still on for . . . that thing . . . right?

    2. That thing . . . with the guy . . . in the place? Oh, yeah.

  14. I was with a friend once when she saw her ex on a date with his new girlfriend. Granted, he'd broken up with my friend a week earlier because this girl had been flouncing around, but still, my friend didn't handle it well. She kept prissing by his table and then camped out at the bar, right in front of him, drinking and acting foolish. Not a good idea!

    1. Oh boy! Perfect example of x-pionage, but taken a bit further with the foolish drunken acts . . .

  15. I always called it google-stalking. I like your word better :)

  16. X is so boring. I have no reason to spy on him, except when I want a good laugh at how crazy he is.

    Love,

  20. Funny! What was that movie called? With Matthew Broderick and . . . oh, Meg Ryan . . . and they both spy on their exes, and then try to get revenge, and all the while, they grow closer together? I don't remember the name. . . .
