I told a friend today that I had just uploaded my latest story onto Smashwords. He's not a fantasy fan, but was kind enough to say that he thought my writing was good, and got him interested in the story, when he read the sample of Like Father, Like Daughter.
"It only seems like five minutes since you put the last one up," he said.
I told him it had been nearly a year - because I'd had to do a fair bit of re-writing. "I had this really long horse ride in which nothing much happened," I said, "but I've managed to cut that out and now the story flows much better."
"Maybe you should call your next story A Really Long Horse Ride in Which Nothing Much Happens - I bet it'd go down really well!" he said.
