I'm reading a lot more again after letting my TV "expire" instead of convert. Now, if I didn't have email and internet....

Well, hi there Den. Thanks for stopping by. I do hope to be more active here in a bit--just some loose ends I need to tie up first.

Hi Jan,

I'm a SMFS cat also. I've seen your name around for a while. - den

Thanks, Paul! I never know where a story is going. For this one, I decided to start with a wedding cake and see where it went. Boy, was I surprised. And you have reminded me I should put up a link here so others can go see it! Thanks again!

Great post on the short mystery list today. A lot of us were feeling like you are. Thanks.

I save all my social network updates for Sundays, then I rush to the computer like it's Christmas! Yesterday I uploaded all the fun photos from LCC. Oh, it was a terrific time! I'm sure you recognize many of the authors.

Beth, so glad to see you here. Because of your prompt, I just put up a new entry. I hope everyone will read and enjoy it!

Hi Jan,
Thanks for befriending this fellow mystery author!

L.J., I bet we're all the same. I do my final edit of anything on paper. I catch things on paper I never see on screen. And I like being able to use my red pen on that paper to fix things. On screen I'm more likely to just fix the little things. But at least then, I can throw the paper out, after I've fixed the story in Word. Thanks for chiming in

Boston Legal is the best thing on TV, intensely political and LOL funny.
I like your paperless idea. I've tried it. But the irony for me is, I really prefer not to read long documents on screen. So the more paper needed, the more likely I am to print it!

Jan -- Since I'm only 5 months late seeing your note, thought I'd send one back. I haven't been here much lately (obviously) but will try to do better. Hope all's well in your world.

Take care,
John

Hi Dave. I can understand busy for sure. We've spent over a month getting the motorhome repaired, traveling to get it repaired and geting to Newport, and are now busy with visiting here in my husband's hometown.
Glad to hear more about the Western Noir Anthology!
See you around! - Jan

Hi Jan, Too busy getting the Spring issue of Hardluck up while trying to make the deadline for the Nero Wolfe novella contest. I finally have a chance to catch my breath and will start pushing to make sure the Western Noir anthology is moving along...

Like Liz, I haven't been here much lately, and so I missed Robert's comment--I HAVE to get on here more often and get on the forums! Thanks to both of you for your comments.

Liz, good luck with your signings and all other promotional efforts. It can be fun, but tiring. I found I do have to make writing my top priority, or it gets lost in the shuffle!

Thanks to both of you for popping in here! - Jan

Hi Jan! I haven't been on Crimespace for a while, so I dropped by to say thanks for your reply to my post on Murder Must Advertise. PJ Nunn is my publicist too, so she might find me opportunities like the used bookstore signing you mentioned. At this point, I'm working on what Patti calls a "wish list" of top places I'd like to go, whether through her or my own efforts. Liz

Jan, I just joined up here at Crimespace and so far I'm really impressed with it. I was going through the members list and What! here you were. Thanks again for your story "Quack" in NEFARIOUS. If anyone here hasn't yet read it I invite you all over to the webzine to check it out. - Bob.

Hi Fleur! Great to see you here. Well, I don't actually DO the 1,000 words a day--I'm trying though. I think I average about 4 out of 7 days per week, sometimes only 3. That's why I've been blogging the numbers, as a prod, I mean prompt! But as you can see, I haven't been putting them up every day. I will go do that now!

Hi Jan,

Good to see you here! The RVing sounds like so much fun. And I admire your 1000 words a day.

Hi Mary! Good to see you here. I sure know what you mean about procrastination! I simply have to leave everything else until I've done my writing for the day, or it doesn't get done. I'm blogging about that here, unless I procrastinate about blogging!

Hi, Jan! Thanks for the invite. This is my second day here, and I've already done a month's worth of procrastination. :) Good to see you.
