Writer Recharge week three

Writer Recharge Week Three

WriterRecharge 2015
Once again hosted by Katy Upperman, Alison Miller, Liz Parker, Elodie Nowodazkij, and Sara Biren, Writer Recharge is your chance for a four-week jump start in the middle of a cold, dreary winter.

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!

  1. Yay for new words, Kim! I’m thinking that the ice storm in your area is a pretty valid excuse for not getting out much. Here’s hoping for warmer weather soon. 🙂 I’m rooting you on during this last week of #WriterRecharge. Best of luck hitting those final goals!

  2. Print proofs are fun! I love getting to see my books in paperback. Best of luck with your goals this week! 🙂
