1. Having recently finished harrassing my work colleagues to within an inch of their lives, I decided to get another job / meet new readers – A fairly drastic marketing technique given that it now entails commuting 40 miles each way, but then most early sales come from direct contact*
2. I’ve entered some short-story competitions with three pieces – ‘Black is the new white,’ ‘Pragmatism,’ and ‘The one true religion.’
3. Been begging other bloggers to add me to their links.
4. Watched back-to-back episodes of ‘Family guy’ whilst eating too much**
*Not sole reason for getting new job.
