Alternate Version: Late-Night Revision Orgy

My blog stats are down today, so I’m wondering if I should spice things up a bit.

For a few moments, I considered altering my previous post for today. I thought of changing the title to “Late-Night Revision Orgy,” which still fits the post, but includes keywords that are much more interesting.

Had I been feeling especially desperate, I could have done an extended blogger’s cut in which the ideas that appear late at night do unspeakable things. Unspeakable? Exciting. But would they be unwriteable? Keep clicking and find out!

More than likely, I would have simply heightened the psychological torture I was feeling, but even that might’ve made somebody click my link. Then I might have goaded my readers. Hey, you there. What do you think of the alternate version? Huh? C’mon, tell the truth. You like that, don’t ya?

But I’m glad I didn’t go there. It’s better that I didn’t even mention it.

  1. Did you receive my comment? I worked so hard on it that night and all I see after I hit submit comment is my name and e-mail address. The comment part was blank. I am frustrated. Let me know if you got this. Maybe it was to long but I see nothing that tells me how long it can be.
