I realized that my library books were due today that I had checked out for the trip to see the authors, so I had motivation finally to really work on my paper and get it done so I could turn the book in this afternoon. I think I did well; I squeezed out five pages after I set the font to the correct size. (Times New Roman 12 point). I’ll turn it in later this afternoon after I let it rest and make sure it’s what I want it to be.
I also turned in a fiction submission to a journal in New Jersey. They had sent my department head a call for submissions and he forwarded it to all of us,. I try to act on things he sends to us so he is not wasting his time in doing so. I had a short-short story, written into he form of four newspaper articles, telling about a double murder that isn’t quite what it seems. SO I sent it in and will hear I reported how well things were going with my mew medication, and he seemed with that. SO that was a good thing.
I am really trying hard to not give up hope for this blog. I don’t’ feel like I am reaching people because I may get a lot of hits on one day out of a month, but I generally see less than 10 hits per day. This after a year of blogging. I’m just discouraged and don’t know if my story of doing well is resonating with people who need hope. I would hope so, but it’s not translating into consistent readers. I just need guidance on what to do with it, I guess.
