Sand in Toes

My story Leviathan's Moving Theatre is today's story over at Every Day Fiction. I'd love it if you could head over there, read it and comment on the Every Day Fiction site. And to celebrate (okay I'd have been doing it anyway), I'm spending the day at the beach with my little niece, my little nephew and my big hulking nephews. Finally a nice summer's day hits England.

In other news, Cate and her new laptop sat up in bed until way after midnight last night working on a short story. Laptop for the win.

Yay for published stories and YAY for laptops that make writing in bed possible.

Cool story! Very strange (of course) and a lot of fun. That line about "if she was a suspicious person, and it turned out she was" or however it goes, absolutely tickled me. Love it!

That's great about your new laptop, too!

Sometimes my laptop works against me, because I type a lot in bed. I end up taking naps or watching TV (on the internet) because I'm lounging. (I have Wi-fi.)

I'm setting up a new computer desk space to combat this.

Woo for the win! Have you named it yet?

Also, loved the story, too much fun. ... which I also said over there, but whatever, it needs saying again.

Thanks for reading. I went out for the day, the whole Every Day Fiction thing scares me a little. :)

I haven't named it yet, I'm waiting discover its personality first.

Um...odd as always. Gotta read the fine print...

Why does Every Day Fiction scare you? (it scares me too, truth be told)

Yay for another laptop user! Fantastic, isn't it? I'm going to give your story a read right now...

Congratulations on the story, Cate. I wish EDF would decide to accept my submission so I can be scared too...I guess the feedback thing from strangers can be intimidating.

My laptop is quite hung up on Youtube at the moment. I keep watching videos like this muttering, "There has to be a story here somewhere!"

What do you think?

Going over to read your story. I write in bed at night on my laptop as well. I don't have internet on at home either, so that helps a little bit.

Aaron, I think it's the sudden onslaught of reads and comments filling my inbox. Plus watching the stars fall lower and lower and lower.

Thanks, Mary.

Alan, I look forward to reading one of your stories on there real soon. :)

Off to You Tube, Natalie. :)

Thanks, Danielle.
