It is a sad day when a man has to admit defeat. I started out this year with the full intention of writing one story every day. And then I broke my hand. Right now I am typing this by using a pencil end to substitute for my right hand. I’m getting quite good at it, but after spending the entire day writing freelance video game ideas, the last thing I want to do is more hunting and pecking. So I am going on temporary hiatus. But I will be back, as will Professor Blowjob and his fine adventures.
In the meantime, I have 77 stories already written, and I can guarantee most of you turkeys haven’t read all of them. I’ve already written the best book you’ve read this year. Please take some time to revisit the stories and send your favorites to your loved ones. Every time you tweet me, my hand gets a little bit better. Thankees! I love you!
So, I did the math the other day, and I realized that if I manage to keep this project going until the end of the year, I will have written approximately 1,500 pages worth of material. That’s a lot of material! I mean, I’m no Gabe from Videogum … that guy can write a novel every day without breaking a sweat. And funny, too! Goddamn that guy is funny. Really, you should be reading Videogum instead of the story of the day.
But if you do enjoy the story of the day and you’d like me to keep pumping them out, I need motivation. I need cheerleaders. And on the Internet, cheerleaders come in the form of traffic. The more I see that little bar go up on my stats counter, the happier I be. And the closer I am to securing a Julie and Julia-type movie deal in which the part of me is played by Meryl Streep.
You can help! And it’s so much easier than actually reading any of my stories! Here’s what you can do: push those little buttons at the bottom of the story. Pick your favorite story … there are 52 to choose from at this point … and Facebook it or Tweet it or Digg it or email it to your friends. Or do all of the above … it really only takes a few seconds of your time.
I know, in this day and age, everyone is besieged with friends and their self-promotions. It’s difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. But if you’re taking the time to read this, chances are you’ve already enjoyed a few of my stories. All I ask is that you pass them along to friends who you think might appreciate them. Kind of like how my high school friend Angela Glenn (nee Wilhite) just bought my book I, An Actress and passed it along to one of her friends because she loved it so much. Yeah, that’s right! You do something nice for me, and you just might gain INSTANT INTERNET FAME. By the power of Grayskull, etc.
So, yeah. Please pass it along!
