Five of Twelve

Seven of Nine 1

Wait…this isn’t Five of Twelve…

Here’s the plan. Send a dozen stories, at least 5,000 words each, to my editor at Distinguished Press by the end of August. So far I’ve sent five. Some are longer versions of stories I wrote last year, some are brand new. All are so much fun! I love this world.

This has been a MUCH better writing week than last. Mostly because hubby reworked his schedule so he could take our guests (two teenage Chinese girls) to school every morning so I can sleep and so I don’t have to get our own two kids moving that early. Most days have been at least “good” if not “better than good.”

I do have a question for my fellow bloggers, especially if you have a WordPress blog:

For the past few weeks, I’ve been getting a lot of spam that ends up in the regular comments queue. (They still have to be approved, so I can kill them then.) Almost all of the spam are on the same old post from 2012. I’ve now switched that old post from “published” to “private” and I have less spam today, but I’m wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and/or is there a better solution? I use Askimet for spam control.

    You need two more stories so Seven of Nine won’t feel quite so out of place….

    I love that you’re having fun with this project. Best way to face a deadline, to my mind. May you enjoy each story more than the one before! =D

  2. Congrats on your writing successes! Sorry I can’t be of any help re: the spam issue. I recently started using Akismet and that has pretty much taken care of things for me. Have a great weekend.
