On a Better Note

So I got a lot of feedback on my guest post on Chris Jensen's blog  Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children as well as my interview with Tamworth Grice's blog Welcome to Griceland .  Rest assured I will be asking them for some guest posts when I get everything on here situated and straightened out.  I will be getting a schedule up shortly.  I've also been trying to budget more time for the reading of other people's blogs so I can expand my knowledge of other under the radar writers like myself, only more talented.  Check out the list of blogs that I follow to see what I'm talking about.  And while you're at it, check them out on Twitter.

Credit Card Companies are Fuckin' Stupid

As you can tell from the headline, I am not too fond of my credit card company right now.  Just took out a debt consolidation loan recently.  One of the items on my list was my American Express card I have had for 12 years, and the credit limit was quite high.  I paid it off.  Got a new card in the mail because it was set to expire at the end of this month.  With the new card came a new credit limit - only instead of increasing it they dropped it by SIXTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS! Fuck! So after taking care of a bunch of things I have maxed out the card when I thought I still had another $1600 on it.  Boy was I ever pissed!
My dad thinks it is a blessing in disguise, saying that it maight be a good thing that the limit was lowered because that means I can't get back into the same hole I was in before.  I say I slightly agree, but I am still rather upset.

Story Time!

So a couple weeks back my good friend Chris ( @hororwritindad) asked me why I hadn't written anything for his blog "Beautiful Stories for Ugly Children" ( horrorwritingdaddy.blogspot.com ) .  A good question. So I threw a story I had been kicking around into existence and sent it to him, Tamworth Grice ( @TamworthGrice , TamworthGrice.blogspot.com "Welcome to Griceland"), Alyn Day ( @Z0mbiegrl , alyndayofthedead.blogspot.com ) and Jason Darrick ( @fearinwords , jasondarrickfiw.blogspot.com ) and they seemed to like it.  You can find the story here, and feel free to leave comments either here or on his page.  I would love to hear what you think!  Good, bad or indifferent I am open to whatever.  Just want to thank everyone who has already commented either here or on twitter.  You can reach me there too, my username is @PatrickRahall
Look forward to hearing from you!
