I sat up past midnight brainstorming a to-do list. Now I’m at the age were sleep is more important than nightlife, so this was out of character. Awoke sometime past six AM after dreaming I was being chased by a big dog. Even heard him woof. Probably a Freudian thing. Added a few more thoughts to my list.I need to flesh out better areas. Places for press releases. My friend suggested e-mails, but I don’t want to be a spammer. Building list of potential book review sites. The business card aspect will be fun. Went to some websites looking for ideas. (That’s where the past mid-night came in.)
