Not much got done this week in terms of writing goals. I wrote about 500 words on Tuesday, and did some more fiddling with my outline for the end of this novella. Gulp. It’s March and I still need to write a quarter of it. Which means it might be June before I get this book in publishable shape. And I still haven’t tackled editing and revisions of the novel I wrote in the fall. I mean to get started with that in March. I opened up the manuscript the other night and read through parts of it. It needs work. The to-do list is piling up! But that’s enough freaking out about it. Panic never saved anyone time. One foot in front of the other, with the first order of business: finish writing Flight!
As for what’s been going on with me: work is crazy. And it looks to be that way for the next month or so, while a few major projects collide. I’ll be putting in a few extra hours until things are calmer. This week didn’t go well. Multiple doctor/dentist appointments, then a sick babysitter, which took any hint of flexibility out of my schedule. Saturday was a day at home for the whole family. The kids have a cold again, and we decided to just lay low for the day. We ended up getting a lot of cooking done and stocking the freezer, and had a great time just playing with the kids at home. Today looks to be more of the same. Plus, I’m going to a friend’s baby shower this afternoon. Can’t wait for that!
Smashwords is doing a promotion March 4-10, called Read an Ebook Week. I’ve enrolled my paranormal romance novellas, Tribute and Vessel. You can use coupon code REW50 to get half off my books for the week. 🙂
I wish all of our writer friends across the country (and world) peace today. I haven’t heard so far of anyone directly affected by the major storms, and I do hope you are all safe.
Less than three weeks to go in Round 1 — how do you feel about where you are?
