So first and foremost, an explanation as to why two weeks in a row there has been no story. I have been super, SUPER sick since about the 27th of August. Doctor says it probably started as a cold that got very out of hand and had me doubled over in pain for a few days, then feverish, then so achy I could barely move, then feverish again. I’m operating under the assumption that what I had was actually some kind of doom plague arisen from the bacterial gladiator games that go on in the school I work at. I seem to be on the mend now, but I felt like I was getting better Sunday too, then it came crashing down on me again yesterday so…. *shrug* we’ll see.
Today marks the one year anniversary of this blog. I’m super excited about that. One year and forty-two short stories later, I feel like I’ve improved a ton as a writer, gotten to toy with some awesome ideas, and I got to read some great stories written by others I probably wouldn’t have seen if they hadn’t taken the time to read and like my own stories. I’m sad that I don’t have a story to post this week of the blog’s anniversary (and that I’m still not feeling well enough to go out and celebrate it proper), but I am glad that I made it even this far. Part of me always worried that I’d run out of ideas a few months in and give up, but so far that hasn’t happened, and hopefully it won’t for a long time yet.
I’d also like to say I’m incredibly humbled by each and every single like or follow I’ve received this last year. I’m not kidding when I say it makes my day when I know somebody read something I wrote and thought it was decent.
Low bar for happiness you say? Not at all. It’s seriously awesome. 🙂
So if you’ve read anything I’ve posted in the last year: thank you.
If you’ve liked or followed me in the last year: thank you more.
If you’ve left a comment telling me you enjoyed something I’ve written: thank you the most.
Other projects are in the works, but I plan to keep this going, so I’ll see you all back here on Monday, when hopefully I’ll be completely over this cold/doom plague and have a brand new story for you.
Please enjoy, and as always, feedback (even harsh) is always appreciated.
