Yesterday evening, a Smashwords author released the two billionth word at Smashwords.
If you could anthropomorphize your words - if your words could speak - what memories would they recall of the long hours touching your soul, of feeling your love and commitment?
What stories would they tell about their journey traveling from your head to your fingers to the screen of your word processor to the eyes, minds and imaginations of your readers?
What secrets would they keep?
These two billion words at Smashwords aren't just words. They represent the creative progeny and expression of 19,000 authors around the world.
As I reflect upon these last three wild years, I want to thank all Smashwords authors and publishers for your trust, commitment and support as we work to bring your words to readers. Three years in, together we've only scratched the surface of the possible.
