I love numbers. I especially love round numbers, numbers in multiples of five, even numbers, and esspecially prime numbers. With eleven more visitors, the site will hit 2,000! **Edit: We broke 2K! Thank you guys!**
I’ve been working hard to draw traffic here. I’ve been experimenting with what works and what doesn’t. On one hand, it feels strange drawing folks to the website when I don’t have much in the way of my own fiction to report. However, it feels like I am building a reader base just the same. I love you guys!
My day will be interesting. I have been down for the count with a cold all week. I’ve gone to work (no high fevers, just low-grade stuff managed by meds – tons of antibacterial hand sanitizer used at desk- no I’m not the outbreak office jerk I swear) and posted my review for the week. I did one story crit. I even managed to get my first guest blog post out there! Yet, I’ve been light on posty traffic. I haven’t been reading for beta, crit, or review. I definitely haven’t been writing. I have been planning what is next though.
Today I find myself alone at home. This is rare. I drove my husband in to work. We stopped and ate breakfast together and got a chance to see the sky just as the sun started throwing pinks and purples into the blue. I am up early, and instead of heading back to bed, I plan to make good use of my day. My cough is being chased away by meds. My head finally is no longer threatening to explode. Today might be the perfect day to catch up.
I plan to finish reading the first three chapters for a good friend of mine. I’ve read this novel during an earlier draft and loved it. I can’t wait to see it published. Next, I have three horror short stories to critique. These are all long over due. After that, it should be time to see my husband for lunch. How nice to be in town as he works right up the road! I am usually working a city away. When I get home, I plan to clean up a bit then get cracking on a story or two.
What are your plans for Saturday?
