I did a bit better with my time tracking this week! I still relied a bit too heavily on the 4TheWords automatic timer, with all it’s pauses, but toward the weekend I remembered to actually manually track my editing work. Go me! Overall my writing week had a bumpy start but got smoother, and hopefully I can carry on that Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Getting There
Tonight I wanna tell you about a hard, writing-related decision I recently made. I actually made it a few weeks ago, but I needed a bit of time to process before announcing it publically. To basic gist is this: I will be re-editing and rereleasing both books in my Orryn Novella series, Going Home and Dress Rehearsal Rag. There will be some significant, Continue reading Orryn Reborn – The What and the When
Hi guys! Hope you all have had a good start to 2017. I’ve had a pretty good one myself, I must say. Calm days, working on some long-term planing and centering myself for the coming years, done a bit of cooking and also watched the first two Harry Potter movies (doing one/evening until I start work again in a week). Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Hello, 2017!
I don’t mention my collection of ball-jointed dolls often here on the blog, but tonight I just have to share a photo of my little polar bear doll (a Fairyland puki event faceplate, in case anyone wants to know). I’ve had here for over a year, but only just painted her and gosh, she turned out so cute. Here’s Metaphora Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Here, have a polar bear!
After my little setback last week, this week I feel like I’ve really gotten back into the groove. In spite of a busy week at work and socially, I have: Read through a few more chapters of my current MS. I’m really enjoying working with it, but I’ve come to realize that it’s gonna need a lot more work than Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back Into The Groove
So, today I went back to my day job. I was ambivalent about it, but now that I’m back it mostly feels good. I’ve missed my colleagues! The only real bummer is it leaves less time for my creative work. With that in mind, I’ve revised my “productivity block” system to get a little more out of the days (two Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Back to Work
This weekend, about 6 months and 10 days after the release of Going Home, its sequel Dress Rehearsal Rag hit the Kindle Store and Smashwords. Yay! Normally I’d do a separate post about news as big as this, but since it’s Monday, and since I’ve already told most people about it view Twitter, Facebook and my newsletter (which you, as Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Dress Rehearsal Rag is out! And onwards.
I did it, guys! I finished my edits! And I’m exhausted! It was a strange week. Total brain-blockage all week, and then edited like a mad woman all weekend. Now the MS is with the proofreaders, and it looks like I’ll hear back from both her and the cover artist on Wednesday. So today I’ve been relaxing, and tomorrow I play Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – The Waiting Game
That’s right guys, it’s crunch time! Edits are going well, if a bit more slowly than I’d like. This week I have: Did my daily writing, which mostly consisted of editing Dress Rehearsal Rag. It needs to be run through twice more or so, but it’s starting to get there! Just a few more kinks to iron out. Got my cover shot Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Crunch Time!
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!
