2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Rena Moon feels like a prisoner, oppressed by the Overlord’s laws, bound by household rules, even captive to her emotions because when she grows angry, the earth shakes.

She restrains her tightly coiled power, until her best friend is kidnapped. Nevan, Rena’s long-time crush, joins the rescue mission into volatile lands where her mood slips toward the edge of control. For once, the Overlord isn’t holding all the power, but can Rena live with being reduced to what she’s trying so hard to escape?

Okay, now that the shameless self-promotion portion is over, let’s get back to the fun stuff.

My what a celebration we’ve had today! I’ve had so much fun chit-chatting with all of you. I’ve learned so much about my FB and blog friends.

For the last contest, I’d like to learn a little more about everyone….

In Edge of Truth, Rena’s is Other. She’s sensitive to ground vibrations, which makes it impossible for her younger brothers to sneak up on her. She also has the power to trigger earthquakes, and since this is an emotion-based ability, it’s can be a burden to her. Both things are physically taxing, sometimes leaving her feeling like she might implode or too exhausted to move.

  • If you were Other, what power would you want? The more flashy it is, the more likely you’d get caught. How much of a risk taker are you?
  • What would be willing to (physically, mentally, emotionally) give up for this power?
