I’m a writer, which does take more magic than math. Yet, Word Press (my blog server) sent me the stats for my most popular posts the past couple of years. I’m going to use those post headings in this tiny tale (below), and see if you can guess which was the #1 post for Roughwighting.
Sex and food seem to be the driving force to draw in a reader. I’m not so happy about this, but facts are facts, and stats are stats.
So, I’m setting aside the novel that I’ve been spending days, weeks, months on, and moving to a new set of characters. They all have big feet, particularly the main male character, and he only eats one meal a day: Spaghetti.
My character’s name is, well, I don’t know his first or last name, but his middle name is …What? What’s in the middle of his name is the clue to the plot of my new, new book.
You want another clue? Well, if you guess Cold, you’re way off, and if you guess Lukewarm, you’re getting closer. Ah, Luke can be his first name. Man can be his last name.
Of course, Luke is HOT. But, the age-old question, and the post that got me the most viewers, is titled …. well, can you guess?
While you’re contemplating the response, perhaps you can also solve the perplexing question all writers ask: What makes a reader happy?
According to my STATS, it’s…
A Hot Man with Big Feet and a Middle Name that He’s Not So Happy About, but Spaghetti Makes His Life Worth Living.
