Sunday Update - Week 44

The end of the year is really creeping up on me.  Gah.  Where did the year go??

Anyway, I really got on a bit of a roll with the edits.  Finally.  It's still a slog and I'm still only getting a couple dozen pages done a day.  I'm pretty sure I won't make my deadline unless I do some marathon work today and tomorrow.  But if I keep my nose to the grindstone, I will get this to my editor sometime this week.  (And I'll have a flat nose.)

Marketing pretty much failed.  The Sleeping Ugly sale finished up with only one sale and a book's worth of page reads.  But I didn't pay for any advertising, so there's that.  I have another sale coming up.  Blink of an I will be on sale November 7th thru the 13th.  And no, I didn't get any advertising set up for that either.  Derp.  I really need to get off my dead ass and get that stuff done.  Maybe I'll manage something spectacular in December.  Yah, right.

There'll be new marketing materials soon.  I ordered the postcards on Wednesday and they shipped Thursday.  I'll drop a note or something, so any of you who want one can get one.

I read a book!  It wasn't a great book, but I read it.

I went fishing a few times, but didn't catch much of anything.

The exercise/activity thing included a lot of walking.  I haven't stepped on the scale to see the lack of progress.  I really need to get back at it before I backslide more.

Finally got out and did some woods work again.  I think I overdid it, but that's life.  By the way, it's gorgeous here right now.  This is the most beautiful autumn we've had since I moved here.  Our dogwoods are outdoing themselves.

Pay-job sent me a pile of work, which is always good.  Gotta fund this writing thing somehow.

Anyway, that's about all I can think of right now.  Tell me what's going on with you.


  1. Not much. I hate the time change. I got new words written. It's NaNo don'cha know, but nothing on the project that was due a month ago. *sigh* The weather is gorgeous here but the trees aren't showing a lot of color. They went from green to lying dead on the ground in like a day. An audiobook I had on hold at the library dropped last night. I stopped the book I was listening to so I could queue up the library book. It still has a waiting list and I know how I feel while waiting. It's a fantasy, TO KILL THE QUEEN, by Jennifer Estep. I've not read her before. So far, I'm liking this book. Mostly. It's first in a series and I'm hoping what should be the climax doesn't get stretched out over several books. That would make me sad. I have a little over 2 hours left of listening and I suspect I won't be all that happy at the end. Ah well.

    That's it for me. I feel a nap coming on.

  2. Ick to the year slipping by. Double ick to marketing. :-(

    Yay to working in the woods! Hooray to paying work! We can always use more of that. :-)

    I'm still puttering away on the dressmaking book. Can't even face the novel at the moment. Grumble.
