Remember last week I was went on a rant about Lady Luck being ticked at me and not showing up when I needed her? Well apparently Lady Luck is a blabber mouth. Seems as if she has been spreading evil thoughts about me to her sister Karma. And let me tell you Karma is way more into revenge than Lady Luck.
Remember my rant yesterday about my fellow students, especially the wannabe athletes? Know what I did yesterday after posting that blog? I went down tot he pool and played about two hours worth of water volleyball. And guess what. I woke up with a sore back. Maybe if I whisper sweet nothings to both lady Luck and Karma they will rub some BenGay on my lower back.
So I take it all back. Mt fellow postal students are the brightest, most beautiful people on earth, especially that dude with the foil, wherever he may be. Okay that was all BS but his next part isn't.
In order to repent I'm going to spread some good Karma around. I want to thank all of you for taking part of your day to read whatever crazy nonsense I happen to post. I'm still a bit amazed how quickly this blog has taken off. The numbers of visitors grows daily and for all of you who take the time to comment, thank you. You give me the motivation to keep coming up with something.
Now I have a favor to ask of y'all, actually three favors. My friend Katrina just launched a blog here on blogger called Texas Tawk. Drop in and offer her some encouragement the same way you have me. Now to favor number two.
Obviously she learned more than me since she has a great novel out called Potter Springs and while I whole-heartedly recommend you go buy it that's not the favor. you see Britta has this blog that she has maintained far longer than mine has been around. But she posts erratically, I know she's probably busy writing her next novel instead of blogging but I still think it would be funny if quite a few of you stopped by her blog and left a comment something along the line of Hey, Travis said you need to blog more often. By the way when Britta does post she opens the door for some really good discussions.
And for the third favor? Head on over to the criminal brief site and read Deborah Elliott-Upton's article on risky writing. She's the one who urged me to take a chance and turn my short story Plundered Booty into a novel.
Okay that should be enough homework to keep y'all busy while I'm driving back to God's country, or as the rest of the world calls it -- Texas.
By the way don't forget, my hundredth posting is fast approaching and every comment gets you an entry into the Grand Prize Game. ***Hint -- Part of the prize is related to today's post.***
