On the menu today -- Hasty Pudding.
With the exception of Wednesday's excerpt post, my posts have been relatively short this week and full of questions. I wanted to see if my new Stat counter would have anything to say about that. It has. I feel like I've gotten a new toy for Christmas. Who knew that finding out how many people have taken a gander at my blog would make me so happy. Soon, though, the novelty will wear off, just like Barbie's new closet full of clothes I got when I was 11. It will be just another thing to fill me with angst.
Thanks to all of you who stopped by for my final excerpt in the Genna & Tony, now Pete saga. I know I have such a bad potty mouth but please remember, all the excerpts were in first draft form and consequently most of the swearing has either been taken out, or changed to Italian. (I'll tell you what, it is so cool to swear in another language. Even if I'm saying porca vacca which loosely translated means "damn it", but literally translated means, are you ready for this, "pig cow." How cool is that? And I'm not even swearing.)
Congratulations to all the finalists in the Notes From The Underground contest over at The Literary Lab, of which I was one. I am in such illumintating, brilliant company, it takes my breath away. I'm posting my entry on my sidebar, a short story, and I hope some day when you have the time or the inclination, you take a gander at it.
I'm this close > < to finishing REMEMBERING YOU. I now have 82,000 and some words with 5k left to do. Or at least shoot for. Please say a prayer for me I get it done over the weekend. Thanks.
So that's my week. I hope you all had a great one. Get some writing done over the weekend!
