Happy October

I wish I had a good excuse for dropping off the map the way I have.  Most of my time has been taken up with work, but I also worked through the edits on my novel.  It was a lot of work and I’m still not as happy with it as I had hoped to be.

 

When I was done with it I turned around and wrote a 10 K Christmas story.  It was fun creating something again.

 

My new short story is out http://www.bookstogonow.com/page127.html

 

So what has everyone else been up to?

marketing sucks.

I don't know my day yet. This thing is purchased as the monthly calender (which is rather pricey but you're getting 30 odd stories).

It's being a brat, this stupid novel. pokes it with a stick.

Yeah - I have some guest blogs comming up that I hope will help and before monday I have to get a media kit together (my first one)

I love the idea of a calandar of 30 stories - I may have to get that. Is it an e-book or a hold it in your hand thing? Both would be cool.

I would poke the novel with a stick - but I don't know if it would respond to an outsider

Well I write on my lunch break at work, but mostly say "I will write now" and turn off the internet and write something. Even something silly.

yeah - sometimes you can't balence everything. I have some guest blogs I need to write and get a media packet together by the end of the weekend *sigh*

Yeah it was the one with the 8K goal - but the story went on a little longer than I wanded it to - I can send it to you if you want to read it. I is more or less free written and probalby just what I needed to do just now.

I figure it will take you a few days to get back into the swing of things.

I'll send it - but I don't want to run and get it this second.

Don't think 'blood sweat and tears' think about sitting down and gettting everything out through your fingers.

Sorry I forgot to text yesterday - I am in a bit of a fog.
