I got out the two final stories which were stretch goals for my Stonecharmer Kickstarter campaign. Ring of Stars also went out to my Patreon backers at the Loki Love and Everything levels. It feels really good to have that done. I probably shouldn't have painted this evening, but I did before getting to work … Continue reading Kickstarter done!
Well, my plan for last night worked well. Almost a little too well. When I made it to my office last night, I realized that I still had 3/4 of a cup of coffee in there. No wonder I had a headache and was so tired. So I clicked on my coffee warmer and got … Continue reading Success
When the creative voice kills a story
After I got daily pages done this morning, I went back to the story that I was editing yesterday. After about an hour, I had finished reading through it. Boy, did I have some issues with it. Instead of working on the story and finishing that up, I went into Kickstarter and started getting out … Continue reading When the creative voice kills a story
Never edit when it’s windy
WIND!!!!! The heater is back on. It's the end of May and it's still cold. Cold enough for me to run the heater. Oh, and did I mention the WIND!!!! Seriously, I'm a little tired of these windstorms. I guess I'm not the one that gets to decide. Yet, given what's happened in this country … Continue reading Never edit when it’s windy
Books are ordered and they are on their way. I really can't wait to see the Stonecharmer covers. Then the work begins of getting them shipped out to supporters. It's all fun, but sometimes it's a little scary and stressful. Then I remind myself it's just shipping out books. Not a big deal. People are … Continue reading Arriving soon
A short story and a novella
After I wrote my pages for the day, I proofed the short story, Four Becomes a Foundation, which is a reward on my Kickstarter. It's all formatted and ready to go. Then I started in on Ring of Stars. I had forgotten that I'd prepared a mockup of the cover, but I wanted to wait … Continue reading A short story and a novella
Digging in the dirt
My garden is all planted. It's been a long few days, but it's done. I mean to take a picture today, but I forgot. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll remember to take one. It'll be interesting to watch it as it grows. I have a feeling it's going to be a tangle of plants this year. … Continue reading Digging in the dirt
Kickstarter rewards on my plate
I've been working on the books for the Kickstarter rewards today. The first book is done in all three versions: ebook, paperback, and hardback. With luck, the others will come together even quicker now. Then all I have to do is the short stories. With luck, I'll have everything done by Monday. That's my goal … Continue reading Kickstarter rewards on my plate
I've spent the day writing. I'm really not sure if I like this idea of not logging words daily. Yes, I do feel like I've gotten more done, but since I don't have most to show for it at the moment, it's almost like a weird limbo. I'm contemplating keeping track of pages finished, but … Continue reading More writing
My Kickstarter finalized today, so I've been busy doing all the prep work for fulfillment, like sending out surveys. Since it's my first one, I also built my own spreadsheet so that I can compare it to theirs and figure out the best way to deal with all the information they send. It's very interesting … Continue reading Kickstarter finished
