Inner Bitter - "Why so bitter?"

I've been working on a new book titled, Inner Bitter, the story follows the lives of three women who are all connected by their relationship with another woman. Each of these women have deep rooted issues within their lives that cause them to seem upset and constantly Bitter about life. The friend that each woman has in common is just the opposite and lives her life on a happier side of the road. All of the women come together in celebration of the friend's upcoming wedding. The story will have multiple narrators to give readers a glimpse into the lives of each the women.

I started writing this story after encountering so many Bitter people, but mostly due to some of the women I've come in contact with in the forms of bosses, neighbors, friends and family. Admittedly, I haven't always been filled with such optimism and happiness about life, but I can honestly say that I've never been just plain ole' Bitter about anything.

Do you know any Bitter people? Let me know what you think.

I will be posting excerpts soon from the book, so check back often....
