It’s a sign! I got up this morning and found comments on my blog. I learned from them that my blog has been nominated for a fairly legit award, The Annual Bloggers Bash Award for Best Overall Blog.
I’d love some votes and you can vote here.
In other news, I spent my two days of not writing the Daily Prompt working on The Schneebelis Go to America. It’s the first time I’ve printed and read my work. I wanted to wait until I had an ending I could get behind (ha ha). To my total surprise, I love it. It still has a fair ways to go, but it’s a good story. Best of all, it doesn’t seem to have many typos. It’s about 10,000 words too short to be a serious contender for conventional publication. I am not sure I’ll pursue that, but I hate to knock it out of the running completely.
In other news, my last remaining aunt, Aunt Jo, is now in hospice care in Billings, MT. She’s 95. It’s a situation in which one wishes they could do with a person as was done with Mindy T. Dog, but Montana doesn’t have a law allowing that, so…
Anyway, I think I’ll continue to “eschew” the daily prompt for a while and just post when I feel I have something to day. I think The Schneebelis need the quiet hour or two in the morning that has been given to the Daily Prompt, even when it’s one of my favorite words, as it is today.
