‘Pecial Sekrit Messidge 4 U and Haiku

If you have a blog and want more comments, you’re probably looking for ways to give readers reasons to share their thoughts with you. I’ve been Beta testing the new CommentLuv Premium plug in for just that reason. Commentators (I’m sorry, that just sounds wrong; that sounds like a goofy word I would make up. Anyway….) can, if their blog feeds are registered with CommentLuv, leave links with their comments to one of their last 10 blog posts, put keywords after their names (@ fantasy, for example) and leave links to their Twitter feeds.

Premium goes on sale September 27, but you can sign up for information TODAY.

Click here to go to the CommentLuv site.

Now, here’s a haiku on the weather.

Tomato skin cracks–
New juice in tough old casings–
Rain after a drought.

WRITING PROMPT: It rains after a long dry spell. Write a character who is happy and one who is not happy about this rain.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I have noticed Comment Luv on your blog and on a couple others, and I luv it! While I’m still otherwise happy with tumblr, in the future I will most definitely be commenting more on blogs with Comment Luv! It works!
