Post: Mini-Minion Member Milestone
Welcome to a new week, friends and minions! Today I'm pleased to announce that The Cosmic Laire has reached the mini-milestone of 150 members, and subsequently breached 10K hits. Now that's incredible! It makes me want to ransom the world for . . . one million dollars!
Who am I kidding? I'm not evil enough to pull a stunt like that. But seriously, thank you for making this possible.
I really like the change that happened while I was away. There are no followers on Blogger anymore. We have members. Has a nice, personal touch--less creepy than follower. For the record, you guys are not a number. I visit your blogs often. I may not always comment, but I read. Speaking of visits, go visit these new members!

Welcome to The Cosmic Laire. Enjoy the voyage!
Update: Edits are awesome! I was stuck on making a few things clear with chapter 6, but it's incredible to have 1/5th of the novel solid with 5K words cut so far, considering my busy week. Cutting seems to be all I'm doing. Hardly anything has changed, blocking-wise.
Dreams are a great motivator. Guess who graced my mind's stage last night? The leads of my completed WiP! They kept telling each other, "we have to hurry, we have to hurry" (which happens at one point). And then, they turned to me. "YOU have to hurry!" That woke me up! They seemed rather insistent, so I better get to it.
