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!
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.
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!
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...
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 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!
