The week that was.
Let's see... I went fishing 5 days out of 7, anywhere from 2-5 hrs worth. Didn't catch anything large enough to keep. The biggest fish was an 11" spotted bass. (Those have to be 15" to keep.) But I did give myself a firm talking to, and while it did help me see the path, I'm still floundering on the gumption to write.
I restarted Wish Hits the Fan. Tucked everything I'd written the first time and the second time into safe spots in case those words come in handy later. I just can't seem to make myself sit down and write.
Wish in One Hand has been free since Friday. Through tonight.
FYI, there's very little chance I'll stick to the production schedule I outlined in my newsletter and past blog posts. I'm thinking 'snowball's chance in Haiti' for having another book release this year. Unless I can pull my head out of my armpit and get working. Even then, it takes my editor roughly 7 weeks (4 weeks first pass, 3 weeks second pass) to do her magic, and 2-4 weeks for me to input her magic. There are barely that many weeks left in the year. I had played with the idea of taking one of my old books, editing it myself, and releasing it that way. Not sure how that would be received, though. :shrug:
There's also this little wrinkle of not having a lot of fundage to do things like editing and cover art. I have to make money on my already-published books before I can afford to do other stuff. Sorry about that, but it's one of the pitfalls of self-publishing, I guess.
Sorry to be such a downer. That's also one of the pitfalls.
What's going on your world lately?
