Exciting news, guys! I got notes on Dress Rehearsal Rag from the first of my beta readers the other day. And let me tell you, they rock! So helpful. I’m going to start working through them later today, and hopefully notes from the others should come in later in the week. I always feel like a headless chicken when it comes Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Feedback! Sweet, sweet feedback!
I had a lovely realization recently. It was this: in my company account I have a few hundred dollars, money I’ve earned on my freelance translations. I am perfectly allowed to use that money to reinvest in my business by spending it on things relation to my writing (since that is, after all, part of my business). It could even Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Riveting Realizations
It’s been a pretty good week, here. Nice weather and a lot of things checked off the to-do list. Mostly small things, but it’s progress anyway. I’ve had a strange feeling of being very busy and at the same time not really doing anything. In spite of that, this past week I have: Done my daily writing, just random bits Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – More Baby Steps
That’s right, I survived Camp NaNo once again! I even won, reaching my word goal of 50k, which feels pretty dang awesome. Writing this story was a bit of a wild ride; it sprawled all over the place like a well-fed weed. It also decided that it wants to be a graphic novel when it grows up, which is a Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – I survived Camp! So… Now what?
Eek, it’s almost April! I’m so excited for Camp. I’ll be honest, though, there’s another story that’s occupying most of my writerly thoughts right now so I’m a bit worries about whether I’ll be able to switch gears to my Camp project. But I’ve done it before so it should be okay. So, what have I been up to. Well, Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Calm before the Camp
I did it guys, I finished my draft! I had a terrible writing week with a serious case of “end of book”-jitters, but in the weekend I finally pulled myself together and finished it. On Sunday, I sent it out to my lovely beta readers. Can’t wait to hear what they say! Other than that Did my daily writing on about Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Beta Time!
What a week! It seems spring has come to Stockholm and I’ve been enjoying the lovely weather as well as doing a lot of writing. Here’s what I’ve done: Drafted chapters 15-19 of Dress Rehearsal Rag. It’s weird, I’m not sure why I had this as my goal since the plan was to only have 20 chapters and it’s odd to leave Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Almost Drafted!
This morning, I was super nervous. The reason for this was that yesterday I finished re-writing chapter 13 of “the sequel”, so today I had to work on chapter 14. Chapter 14 onward consists mostly of drafting new material rather than rewriting my old draft, and for some reason this suddenly felt very scary. Like, what if I added all this Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Drafting Season
I’ve had on of those wonderfully energetic weeks where you accomplish a lot but it doesn’t feel like you’ve done that much. Yay for those! I hope to carry on the trend into next week. The work with the sequel is going really well. I’m very happy with how it’s shaping up this time around, and it’s always nice when Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Heaps of Progress
This has been a very productive week on a theoretical level, and a slightly less productive week on a practical level. I’ve made some “big choices” , as it were, about my current writing projects and it feels great to put some of my questions marks behind me. The biggest of the two choices was settling on a path to Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Decisions Made
