Just got back from an interesting walk. I was literally expecting a cop car to pull up beside me any second cause I just knew someone had to have called in a suspicious person. First off I tried new sneakers today that had no backs to them, so I felt like I was walking on shifting sands, or how you walk on snow and ice so your feet don’t get out from under you. I imagined that I looked like an old Asian lady trying to power walk in clogs- don’t ask me why, that’s just the image I had of myself. Then add the spider webs. You know those tiny little spiders that when they leave the nest they throw out a long web parachute and let the wind decide where they will live? They have been everywhere lately. My husband has been fighting ‘those sneaky little paratroopers’ in the Jeep, they just dive bomb out of nowhere. Well a nest must have released between the last time I walked and today, cause every five seconds this clog-wearing, power walking Asian lady was also karate chopping the webs I was constantly walking through. Walk, walk, spider web to the forehead, karate chop, walk, walk, stop, try to pull the damn sticky thread off, walk, walk, take another web to the chin. I felt like anyone looking out of their window when I walked by must have seen some crazy, hallucinating, karate chopping, flailing weirdo who kept stopping to pick imaginary bugs off of her face and body. So eventually I turned around and came back the same way, hoping I’d already taken out all the webs. Nope. And the way the sun was- this time I could see their wavy, glinting little selves strung across the road from the trees and such. Sometimes I’d see them in time to duck, sometimes I’d see them a half second before I walked through it, too late to stop. So the entire walk back felt like one of those cat burglar movies where the hot chick in spandex sprays that magic spray that lets her see all the laser lights that she must then backflip and do sexy little gymnastic walkovers to get through- only I was more like the spastic, drunken karate limbo from the psych ward. So, yeah. That was my walk. Surprisingly cop car free.

Just a quick look at monthly totals for prosperity’s sake:
September sold 43 titles, October sold 30, and November sold 43. I’m still averaging over one title a day, but not yet 2. Not bad for a beginner, I guess. I don’t have anything to compare myself to, hence logging my own for someone else to compare to.
I did hit my first goal. Actually I feel uncomfortable calling it a goal as there is nothing I can do to reach it- so I’ll call it a milestone.
I’ve reached my first milestone- 100 titles sold. 116 to be exact. Woohoo celebration dance behind the keyboard. Next milestone I have no way to predict is: 500 titles sold.
Let’s see how the titles are doing:
