No story today. The Three Ghost’s of Halloween one ended up being more expansive than I originally thought, and I’m still not quite happy with the final version. I feel Part IV was rushed a little and didn’t flow as well as the other ones, especially Part I. Well, what is done is done and there is no point in crying over spilled milk.
Yes, I expect everyone to have a fantasy develop when you hear that adage. It probably involves a contrite girl on her hands on knees, cleaning up spilled milk with a very red bottom on display. It does bring me to two points:

Lastly, I have been thinking about how to gain more comments. I try to respond promptly to any comments made, which is a big issue made on every ‘blogging help blog.’ I know my topics are not necessary conducive to having a high comment load, but I am curious if there are other ways I can increase the amount of comments, without turning off the spam filters.
