Teaser Thursday: Oops
Teaser Thursday / June 2, 2016

A) I’m late B) This isn’t a real post, either. Some of you may know that my Writer has decided to add “macular degeneration” to my list of character attributes in an attempt to make me more well-rounded. (If you didn’t know, now you do.)

I got the words in, but it was a hectic day and I abused my eyes.  I also did it on four hours of sleep. On Saturday, I got to play host and I was a guest at a thirteen-hour online event. On three hours of sleep. I took one 30-minute nap, one 15-minute Starbucks run, and a quick dash to the mailbox. Beyond that, I was in front of a computer all day. Last night I tried to get a book cover finished, do a social media graphic, and write up a short story before I got to my poem for the day. I didn’t finish. By the time I got through my social media graphic, my eyes were burning and…
