As the discerning reader will have noticed, my attempts at keeping up my blogging while, as they say, down under, were not very successful. I have now been back “up over”, I suppose, for about a week and I thought it was time I get back into it! I had an absolutely fantastic time on my trip, a once in a lifetime experience that will hopefully some day be a twice in a lifetime experience. I am not sure whether I will write much about it here on the blog. I did a lot of tweeting while traveling, and I’m sure the trip will bleed into my writing in many ways in the coming days and years, but whether I want to write about it specifically here… I don’t know. We’ll see…
All that aside, I am excited to have a bit of time off over the summer (now that I’m in summer again) and be able to spend a lot of that time on my writing. I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo right now and… oh, on that note: Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag are both back up on Kindle in their new, updated versions! If you already have the Kindle version it should update automatically and if you don’t… go buy ’em!
Okay, digression over: since they are now updated, I am working on book 3 in the series for Camp! Yay! And if things go well, I’m probably just gonna draft book 4 in August too, we’ll see. So my writing goals this week is:
- At least 16h of writing and writing-related work this week.
- Poking my conlang daily.
- Hitting 10k for Camp. I’m a bit behind at the moment, not even 3k yet of my 20k goal.
- Work on the shorts I started drafting for Camp in April.
- Get the new Smashwords versions of Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag up.
It’s Tuesday today, as you may have noticed, which means I am doing my Monday blogging a day late. That should say something about how much writing I’ve been doing this week so far (hint: nothing, tbh). Yesterday I was exhausted for no good reason, and tonight I am exhausted for sensible reason. But hey, there’s 5 days left in the week and at 16h total, that’s only about 3h daily so… no sweat? Let’s hope. I’m excited about this week, guys! I’m excited to be working on my stuff, especially since depending on a few factors I may have a very busy fall in front of me. Maybe not, but just in case I wanna get as much writing as I can done before the term starts.
And with that, lovelies, I think it is time for me to get to bed. Sweet dreams!
