Two Hundred Stories!!!

Think about this, people.

We have now (or will in a moment or two) have hit the 200 mark.

When I started this nearly a year ago, I never expected to make it past the first ten. In fact, when I got the first story and then the second and the third and finally the fourth, I thought, "That's it. It was fun. Oh, well."

And that's because I had to wait a couple days to get another new story.

I was tearing my fucking hair out, going crazy, thinking that I had gotten into something and was way out of my depth.

You all changed that for me within the next couple days and then a day after that and then another day after that and so on.

You are all unfuckingbelievably talented and this is your milestone as well as mine.

Enjoy it.

Just one last factoid to blow your mind.

In June of this year, on June 11, as a matter of fact, I posted a Jake Hinkson story. That story was Story #100.

It took seven months to reach that mark.

Today is October 7 and it took a little less than four months to go another hundred.

Congratulations to us all and here's to another 200.

Badass, man.

You've really turned A Twist of Noir into quite the web presence.

You're a blessing, brother, to everyone who digs bullets and babes, guns and knives, crime and mayhem.
