I’ve been failing all around at my goals, which is a sure sign that I need to change them. Usually, not toward the more forgiving either.
Found is completely plotted, as is my pen name short story collection. If I write a chapter a week on Found, I can have it out Fallish like I planned. So, new goal, write a chapter a week on Found.
I have two long weekend vacations coming up in August. I plan on bringing a laptop on both and trying to get some work done as I will be child-free.
I’m also changing my goal of no more stats checking except Sundays, to spend less time on the internet in general. Mine was out for a day and I got so much done!
Short update today! I’ve been working on Found just a bit, getting used to writing in first person present. Meanwhile, I’ve been dealing with my house falling apart and needing to get a new roof. Whee!
I haven’t gotten around to working on any essays or the next Back in Time story. Although, I started a new trio of pen name stories last night and those are coming along well. I had another one that I was working on, but I hated the characters, so it’s binned for now. One of the pen name stories is doing well and I only have two out, so I thought I’d get a few more of those into the wild.
What else? I feel like I’m reaching my bi-yearly marketing flame out, so I’m going to spend more time writing and less time promoting my books for a few months. Even though I know that marketing doesn’t really do all that much, I have a hard time stopping. But then I get absolutely crazy and obsessed and that sucks all the fun out of life.
How uplifting is this update? I haven’t been getting anything done and I feel like all the fun is being sucked out of life. lol I’m being a bit dramatic to say the least.
Happy writing fellow ROW80ers!! Have fun!!
