I just wanted to give a quick word of thanks to all my readers. According to WordPress’ stalker-esque tracking features, yesterday’s post about my 20th rejection letter has garnered more followers than any of my previous posts. Also, WordPress told me that it stayed up all night looking at surveillance photos of me using the bathroom and has come to the realization that the two of us are meant to be together forever and that 500 feet isn’t nearly enough distance to keep it from “perceiving every beat of my heart” and “cherishing each recorded word from my lips as if they were the whispers of its dying grandfather.”
To my new followers, I say, “Welcome.” I hope I don’t let you down. [Whispered spoiler alert: I probably will.]
That said, this kind of solidifies my fears that people delight in my failings. I can’t wait to rub that fact in my supportive mother’s face.
