--I'M TOO LOW FOR ZERO
…Here we are in the middle of the week and it’s freezing out. Hope you’re staying warm and being productive, if in fact, you want to be.
…Yesterday a story I wrote the day before got erased from my computer. That sucks. I didn’t have a title for the piece, therefore didn’t save it, and thus it is a goner. At least I didn’t like the story a whole lot.
…These are some things I like on a Wednesday:
