Weekend Progress – Week 7

So how much progress did I make this weekend? My two main goals (besides watching the royal wedding) were to work on two books. For Rush, I’ve finished about 2/3 of the testing (yay!) which means I should be able to finish it up and get the pre-order up this week (fingers crossed). I also […]

Weekend Progress – Week 6

So, how much progress did I make towards my goals this weekend? I accomplished both of my goals! I wasn’t sure I’d be able to do it, but I did. I was able to write more in Seaside Valleria 3 (not as much as I wanted, but every little bit counts). I was also able […]

Weekend Progress – Week 5

So, how much of my massive to-do list did I get finished? Not much, and that’s okay. I managed to finish edits to the next Royals book, so now it’s time for ebook testing! I got some edits to Ripple (Seaside Valleria 2) done as well, and am hoping to finish that up with my half-day […]

Weekend Plans – Week 5

It’s the weekend! This weekend is a little bit different because I’ve also got Monday half off from the day job (I couldn’t take a whole day unfortunately). Looking at the bright side, that means an extra four hours of time I can devote to my author biz, which is great because I am SO […]

Weekend Progress – Week 4

So how did I do this weekend? Short answer: Not so great. Family drama sidelined me, so I’m reminding myself that progress not perfection is important. The weekend wasn’t a total wash, however. I did manage to write 5000 words in Seaside Valleria 3, mostly through dictation (I wrote more about that in a recent […]

Weekend Plans – Week 4

Another week, another weekend. Here are my author-y plans for the days ahead! You’ve probably noticed a pattern about my weekends, and that I’m working on the same books. When we’re close to crunch time (i.e., publication date) that’s typically how it goes. It’s different in the editing phase, because once the book’s in the […]

The Dark Side of the Muse – Part 4

I’ll be spending the next couple days finishing up my muse series. We’ve talked about the muse in general, tempting her back, and what to do when she comes back with too many ideas. Today, I’ll talk about her dark side. Some might say the dark side of the muse is writer’s block (the dreaded […]

Weekend Plans – Week 3

What am I working on this weekend? I spoke a little about the editing process in yesterday’s post. (P.S. – if you’re an email subscriber you may get both today and yesterday’s blogs together.) Here’s where I am in the editing process for my current WIPs (works-in-progress): Need-to-do: Royals 10 – My developmental editor returned […]
