Stats List

To be read by millions is my choice,
over the admired obscure novelist.
I know this because,
at the end of the day,
week and month,
I obsessively mourn
my stats on WordPress.
They read like a grocery list,
and I am in need of more:

A Bookish Choice
A literary-minded witch gives you a choice: with a flick of the wand, you can become either an obscure novelist whose work will be admired and studied by a select few for decades, or a popular paperback author whose books give pleasure to millions. Which do you choose?
Sharing is caring.

    1. Thanks for asking Andy. The bathroom is still almost finished. The builder has become very busy. I’ve taken a back seat to a bigger better paying job. He says today or tomorrow. I’ll definitely post some after pictures if it’s ever finished. It will be nice to take a shower!

  1. I published a book about 7 years ago. My intention was to leave a family legacy for my grandchildren. It was a memoir. I think I sold about 100 copies and most of them were purchased by me. My goal was met, however, in that I now have something to give my grandkids that tells them about life and their grandma.

    1. That’s wonderful! Is there a link on your blog for your book? I’m sure you could sell a few that way. More info please!
      My goal is to write a complete novel and publish. I’m working on it, but who knows if it will happen. All I can do is keep trying.

      1. The name of my book is “stages – a Memoir” by Kathy Boecher and is available on Amazon.com. It is not really a link, but shows on my about page. You can do it. It took me seven years to write mine, because of a lot of difficult memories it brought back. It was very cathartic though. Keep working on it. Follow your dream!
