...and falling.


Let's face it. You can't have an ego, and be as bad an author as I am. The result would be an utter tragedy.


I've actually banned accounts which have most likely been genuine people, but have had very little to say and haven't been seen this side of the moon landing.


Strangely, I found a few accounts of people that I enjoyed conversations with, but haven't been on the platform for a while. I did feel a tug at the old heart strings when their avatars scrolled onto the screen.


Still about 170-ish accounts to go through, and now I'm starting to go back in time to the people I started conversing with when I first joined BL... and there are fewer and fewer spam account showing up now. I'm noticing a few people who I really should drop a PM to... but it's one of those things that, when a conversation has reached a natural end... it is right to nudge someone, even though it's just to say, "Hey! I still remember you and really enjoyed our conversations." ... that's one I'm going to have to think about.


Not tonight, however. I've put down the ban hammer for the evening and I'm about to hunt a cup of tea. It was an early start this morning, and it's going to be another early start tomorrow morning. No rest for the wicked... and I'm downright evil :-)


So the copy of Firefly is still resting on the floor in the bedroom, with a book mark poking its head out of the pages, and my reading glasses resting there; awaiting my attention. Crikey, by the time I get around to finishing it, part 2 will be with me. I mean... where did the holiday go? I was sure that I thought there'd be plenty of time to catch up with some reading.


Apparently, not.
