Readers,

It turns out lightly mocking your friend who has 10,000 page views a month on their blog, and then in turn being link saladed (is that even a thing?) in said blog, turns into a LOT of people coming to visit your blog.  My stats yesterday were kind of mind-boggling for my humble web abode. (I am easily impressed as my readership is smallish, but much loved) I am glad that Jay took pleasure in my suggestion. I guess my next target should be to get John Scalzi’s eye to twitch enough he responds and posts something.  A very high bar, to be sure, but a worthy goal.

I think I owe you all a, “What I did over my Christmas holiday,” post, but I am waiting for the statue of limitations to run out, and for the possible pardon from the governor, so be patient.

Regards,

-Seamus

Jay, buddy. I am not sure how to break it to you, but I think you might have a long, lost twin brother out there.

Christmas eve, Christmas day

Who knew yesterday’s setting sun would be a prelude to such an out pouring of abundance and generosity.

I am thankful to be so loved by my family, and chosen family.

Now if I could only just finish this next damn novel.

Readers,

For those of you who are writers, which is a few, wouldn’t it be nice if publications would supply reasons for a rejection?  Of course, I know why they don’t, limited time, volume of submissions, complexity of the effort, encouraging further dialogue which recapitulates this list. All good reasons, but I think there is a possible solution. Lets take a page from the old Hollywood studios. I think this could work.  I made my sample, for the LULZ, as the young people say.

Here it is for your consideration.

I know, I am easily amused, but then, you are here.

Readers,

I know some of you follow other sources of social media from me, so apologize the duplication. For those who only follow me here.  I wanted to let everyone know that Paradise Lost III is open for registration.  We are half full, at just over two weeks of being open.  If you plan to attend, I strongly suggest you go register.

Go check it out.

In the mean time, today has been a day of domestrivia.  Specifically, planting the shrubbery.  It is rather nice shrubbery.  Also, it is exhausting digging holes in dirt, then stuffing said nice shrubbery into them, patting dirt around it and such.  My back hurts.  My arms hurt. I was scratched because said nice shrubbery was rather thorny. So it was nice shrubbery, but pokey, and exhausting.  If they do not live, I shall be most put out. I will dig them up and beat them with a shovel.  See if I don’t.

I am hoping to move to on to Project Mirror and the shiny, new words soon.

But first, food.

Have a lovely shrubbery day

-Seamus
