My 5000th Hit!!!

On May 13, 2011 I wrote the first entry in this blog of mine.

https://stevevernonstoryteller.wordpress.com/2011/05/13/international-black-cat-day-friday-13th/

Since then I have posted 123 posts.

There have been a total of 230 comments.

I have 73 followers.

And – as of today – I have just reached the 5000 hit mark.

I want to thank all of my blog-followers. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to make a comment. I want to thank everyone who bought my e-books – for a writer without readers is like a sailor without stars to steer by.

If it wasn’t so darned late – (I just got in from a long shift at work) – I would write something truly entertaining – but instead all I can offer is my honest gratitude.

Let me just jot down one cool writerly quote to give you folks a little inspiration to make up for all the inspiration that you – in turn – have given me.

“The writer must entertain – or else his manuscripts will molder upon the shelf – written but unsung. He should shed at least a ray of light on human experience – on the human condition. These are his moralities – entertainment and illumination – enforced by the high resolve to write his very best.” – A.B. Guthrie Jr. (author of THE BIG SKY)

yours in storytelling,

Steve Vernon
