Hi there! I chose three p’s for the title today. I’m feeling a little Sunday morning spunky. So far on this bright day, my husband has made a delicious breakfast and built a big fort in the living room with the kids. I’ve done very little. Awesome. 🙂
(Update, since I wrote this part an hour and a half ago — since then, we’ve played a new kiddo board game that was really fun, and a couple of us have gotten dressed. I’m not one of them.)
In terms of production, I’m really into my WIP right now. I gave myself permission to work on that nifty fresh project if I needed to blow off steam, but every time I open my manuscript I find it easy to make progress. Sometimes having a possible source of relief is just the ticket. This week I wrote:
Monday – 400
Wednesday – 300
Friday – 1,000
Saturday – 1,600
And on Tuesday I wrote 400 words on the fresh new WIP. So in total I hit my 3,500 word mark, but I didn’t quite get there on the book I’m supposed to be writing. But like I said, I’m feeling particularly into the groove on my main project, and I anticipate a high word count this next week because I’m eager to write the next few scenes. Yay!
And we’ve reached…procrastination. The topic here is the print version of Queen Witch. I’ve never done a print edition before, and I’m nervous about it. I’ve done an initial run at the formatting, but I need to do a bunch more reading on CreateSpace to make sure I have things correct. I definitely need to move this up my priority list. I WILL make progress this week, hopefully resulting in submitting the book so I can get a physical proof.
I also need to prioritize the revisions on my novella Flight. I want to publish this in May, so I need to get cracking.
The challenge this week will be fitting in both writing new word count and progress on revisions and formatting a print manuscript. It’s a lot to juggle, but I feel like I’m at a point where I need to make progress everywhere.
Best of luck to everyone in the coming week. Spring is on its way, I can feel it in the air! 🙂
