I thought about whether to share this for a long, hard while because I think I like to keep such things to myself, mostly. In the end I decided that as a writer, it would be a shame to let it go to waste.
So I saw this in the afternoon (when I was supposed to be working, never you mind) and after rolling my eyes, I thought I should ask. I don’t know everything after all.
According to this episode of Criminal Minds, Igbo tribeswomen believe that the placenta is the child’s dead twin (in the womb naturally) and revere it as such.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 27,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 6 Film Festivals
So here are the stories I received. I delayed by six days because I thought I would get more stories but since I didn’t, let’s not keep the entrants waiting, shall we? First story to get 10 votes (or the most votes) by 5pm (GMT) tomorrow, wins.
I hooked up with this hot guy I liked in university. We hadn’t seen for a while so when he suggested lunch I agreed. After the delightful meal, he offered to drop me home. As I got out of the restaurant, I slipped and my very pencil skirt, which had a front slit tore all the way to my pubic area. Did I mention I was going commando because I hate pant lines? I wanted to die. His reaction? The monkey pointed at it (the idiot) and started laughing. During the trip home, he couldn’t keep the smile off his face. He apologized but let’s just say that was the end of that. A-hole
I used to work at a pool as a lifeguard, and I would open the pool. This guy I was REALLY into walked me to work early one day and we went swimming with all the lights off. Then, my boss came in and we were busted! I was so sure I was fired, but she was cool and just told me to never do it again and left it at that!
Please vote by putting either 1 or 2 in the comment section. Or you can put the name of the candidate whose story most appeals.
Good luck to the competitors!
When you first self-publish, it’s easy to get caught up in an avalanche of new words. You build an author platform, you promote, you post giveaways, you send ARCs, you tweet, you blog.
You’re constantly searching for a target audience, making up marketing plans. You’re slowly turning into a business man. Sometimes you might even talk like one. Heaven forbid you actually start dressing like one.
