Writer Recharge Week Three
So, we are already onto week three of #writerrecharge. It’s been a fantastic week for me.
So here is how the week went:
WRITE/REVISE : I worked on story beats again, this time figuring out length of story and where I think things might go. Then, I wrote over 950 words on The Galileo Strategy. This is most likely authorial throat-clearing and will be deleted down the line, but it is always fun to introduce characters and learn about them from actual writing.
READ/REREAD : I am up to page 115 in the George R.R. Martin novel, A Feast for Crows. It doesn’t have chapter numbers. Only chapter headings, or names. So I can’t tell you where I am in the book aside from the page number. In truth, I haven’t gotten very far since last week.
STRETCH : Reworked the print cover for Love Inn and have a second proof on its way. Got ambitious and STRETCHY and created a print version cover for Ten Tips my little self-help book. The proof for it will be here this week too.
SELF : The ice storm hit and I couldn’t get out so I was rather sluggish and didn’t exercise.
CONNECT : Posted Mr. James Smith’s review blog post and queued up his post for my Writer Groupie slot on Tuesday. Have two more interviews lined up but they are not a part of the Author Rodeo Roundup.
FUN : Made time to write. That was about the most fun of all.
This week, my goals are:
Write/revise: Get at least another 500 words written on The Galileo Strategy. Do edits for Deadly Array because I have them and need to get them done.
Read/reread: Try to get through another chapter of this big fat tome.
Stretch: Check out print proofs for Love Inn and Ten Tips and the swag for the signings are due in soon as well. Have to cut up postcards and buy a tablecloth.
Self: Force myself into something healthy. Either food or exercise. It has to be done.
Connect: Have found some folks online that I would love to have on the show. Thinking about emailing…
Fun: Monday night, TV and to bed early. Tuesday, have a funeral to go to and spend time with my kids, Wednesday – Empire and American Idol night, Thursday, write like the wind. Friday, read. Yes, all that IS fun.
So that’s me. I hope you have a great week!
