Good morning, World 🙂
Yesterday, I achieved a milestone that has taken me nearly a year and a half to accomplish. To those of you who saw my Facebook and Instagram posts, this will come as no surprise, but for those of you who did not,
I finished the first draft of my werewolf shifter romance trilogy, “Wandering Wolves.”
All three books are now ready to enter the second draft phase, which I will mean meating up the first and third books, and slimming down the third. I know what changes I have to make in order to whip these novels into shape, I just have to… You know. Whip ‘em. WIP ‘em? Nevermind mind.
Big Ol’ Goals Checklist
The month of May is going to be a month of EDITS, EDITS, EDITS.
I need to amass at least 244 karma points on scribophile.com in order to be able to post my books in their entirety to my groups, and so far I have 40, so that’s fun. Time to roll up my critiquing sleeves and earn at least 10 a day. This is going to hurt, but whatever. I consider this my full time job since my hotel temporarily closed, so it’s only fitting that I should do it for 20 MILLION HOURS RAWR SDHFSdhsdhhkGD XD;;;;
There’s another, smaller project I am also currently working on.
You remember that little romance novella I wrote, “Warmth”?
Well, I’m giving it another proofreading and packaging it up as a story magnet for future marketing shenanigans. That was my intention with this piece anyway, and since I have three books coming out this year, it’s high time that I utilized this piece as best as I can. Reading through it once more should take about a day, maybe two, so I’m going to do my best to have this completed by the end of April. This piece will then be deployed on a top secret mission in enemy territory. I would say more, but security clearance issues. You understand.
Oh, and I need to fill out my FAFSA, because mama’s going back to school in 2021 to finish her degree. No big deal. Actually it is a big deal and I’m losing my shit over it. I’m like six classes away from a B.S. in psychology and I just need to get this fucker in the bag already.
There’s also another slightly exciting thing that I’m working on, but I’m hesitant to say anything about it just yet. Let’s just say it involves a completed book that’s been sitting in my drop box for like, four years, which I have not done anything with, and I’m about to change that. But I don’t need to worry about that this week.
SCHEDULE = PACKED, OK?????
It’s the 27th, which means I have three days to wrap up my objectives for this month. The most important one is secured.
Today’s work schedule will involve a blogpost (check), between 5 – 10 points on scribophile, playing with my baby, and folding three loads of laundry. Yes, three. Oh, and there’s some dinner that needs cooking.
How is your time in quarantine going? Do you find that time in isolation is making you more or less productive? Tell me about your goals or lack thereof! 🙂
Wishing you peace, love, and prosperity!
