So, here we are in the middle of September. Not sure how that happened. I guess publishing four books in a year (three down, one to go) will do that to a gal. Well, that and other things. :shrug:
Okee doke, here we go...
I slacked off last week on writing. I'm at just over 27K words. I hit that thing I talked about earlier in the week over at OTB and fell flat on my face. So, I spent some days not thinking about it. Friday and Saturday I sat my ass down with a notepad and really thought about where I was at and where I was headed. I'm hoping to get some major writing done today.
Work began on the cover for Unequal. Umm... yah. I know what I want to do, but I don't think it'll be what dystopian readers are looking for. Lord knows, I thought the first cover I did for Blink was awesome and it flopped. The second cover of that ain't blowing people's skirts up either. If my cover artist wasn't up to her eyeballs in work, I'd see what she could do. I do have a slot in her schedule next month, but that's supposed to be for the cover of UatB. And I need that done, so I think I'll leave it. Cross your fingers for me on Unequal's cover.
I finished reading four books last week. Three of them are on my reading update and the fourth got finished yesterday.
I've been trying to think of some kind of marketing plan for this month, but meh. I should've been thinking about Sept marketing in Aug.
The ol' activity thing fell down last week, too. Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday I did some form of exercise. Wednesday I cleaned. The other days I sat on my ass for the most part. Still, I managed to reach a milestone on Friday and finally got below 180. Two-tenths of a pound below, but hey, there's a seven in the tens spot after about a decade, so I'm ecstatic. Anyway, I think I lost some weight (technically, about a half a pound overall) despite my laziness because I ate smaller portions of smarter foods.
Oh, hey, one of this year's fawn has tiny baby buttons*! He's so cute! I love it when you can finally tell their genders. Unfortunately, they're all losing their spots, too. My babies are growing up. :sniffle:
We've been seeing a lot of different birds in the yard again, so I'm declaring migration is in session. At least here in MO. We've had a girlie tanager hanging around (not sure if it's a Summer or a Scarlet) and a vireo (either a Warbling or a Red-Eyed) and some different little warblers. I love migration season. Soon, we'll have Bald Eagles again!
Well, I guess that's it for me this week. How are things in your little corner of the world?
