I am temporarily on Mercury time, where one day takes 58 days and 15 hours of Earth days. So my daily posts are not late at all.

Platform building blog post

Elaine Kiely Kearns and I wrote a blog post for Rate Your Story: Successful Platform Building Doesn't Have to be About You. So that's my creative act of the day.

I also spent about 6 hours today revising my MG novel. It's getting close!
