Random Tidbits

Scary Mary has been downloaded 248 times from Smashwords since I posted it 2 weeks ago. It has been approved for the premium catalog, but it hasn't been uploaded to any other vendors yet. Considering my total lack of real promotion, I still think this is pretty good. A lot of people are taking a chance on my story. I hope they like it.

Haven't really been editing Unicorn Bait like I planned. I've been writing new stuff instead. Started a completely new story which I'm not sure will really do anything. I started it when I was feeling pretty down in the dumps so it's a depressing sucker, which is an unintentional pun if you know the story features vampires. Man, I really hate how mainstream vampires have become. The market is over saturated with them. I don't know why I'm bothering, but it's a story I can go to when I'm not feeling cheerful in the slightest. I've also been working on my superhero story a little. I need to work on The Shackled Witch, which is the story I plan to post next, but I ran out of steam on that one for a bit. Waiting for the charge to come back up on it.

I think I'd really like to get a netbook. I've been looking at them a little, and Woot.com isn't helping any by offering some at very low prices, but I can't decide if it's worth the expense. I have a laptop, which is what I'm using right now to type this, but it's old and heavy. I don't use it a lot. I weighed it today, and it's eight pounds. It's not very easy to lug around. I have an iTouch which I've tried writing on some, but it's useless for editing. I've actually been using a spiral notebook lately to write the new stuff. But then I'm going to have to sit down and transcribe it to computer and that's really annoying. I'll keep mulling it over I guess.
