Look, I Found My Paddle!
Okay, maybe not. But it feels like it because I’m actually posting a ROW80 update on Sunday. Imagine that. Must mean I found a paddle, or the rock I’ve been under is starting to shift. Either way, I’m happy about that. I’ve been in a funk for the past month or so. Not just on the writing front. Life in general was just not cooperating with me. Or I wasn’t cooperating with it. Hard to say. Maybe, as Kait mentioned we all need to do from time to time, my well is refilling. I won’t question it. Just going to roll with it.
So, my ROW80 update.
- Edge of Darkness is still fighting with me. That contributes to the funk. But I haven’t actually sat down and given it 100% of my attention. At this point, I think I may need to go back and read Emergence so that I can reconnect with my characters and their story. That will mean stuffing my internal editor into a bag, putting said bag in a box, wrapped in chains, within another box, and so on. Because I can *always* all-ways find things to change, things I missed, things I don’t like. Too late. Move on.
- Bound in Shadow has met great acclaim from most of my betas. There are still a couple verdicts out there, but I’ve started to tweak and fine tune it based on some excellent input.
- My third goal was to schedule writing time on days off and weekends and stick with it. Um…that one is hard. We have a small farm with many critters and always something to be done. Let’s not forget the whole training and trialing of the dogs passion. But I’ve got to wedge it in there somehow. Even if it’s just a couple hundred words a day. Social media tends to suck me in. And Pinterest. *shakes fist* And miscellaneous, brainless, resting the grey matter things.
Moving on…I’m excited about tomorrow as I get to meet another on-line writing pal in person. The talented Kourtney Heintz will be in Wisconsin promoting her book The Six Train to Wisconsin, so we’ll be getting together tomorrow evening before her event. I re-posted my review of Six Train on Friday.
That’s if for today. Off to visit some other ROWers.
