Ha, so Manic Monday turned into Tornado Tuesday.
Life has gotten super busy now that school is back in. We have choir, and soccer, and job searching, and parent volunteering to coordinate. We also have pending repairs on our house (LOTS of pending repairs) and frankly, I’m exhausted.
Social Media is contributing to this exhaustion. There are some nights I just don’t even feel like turning on my Mac. Which should tell you how tired I am.
I know this blog has been sporadic over the summer and it’s about to get even more sporadic, because, at the suggestion of a friend, in an effort to get my writing mojo back, I’m taking a hiatus. Which means, I’m only going to post when I feel like it and it certainly won’t be the regularly scheduled three posts a week, because I just can’t.
I will be around on Twitter – fannish stuff you can find @Thraceadams, author stuff you can find @Katherinehalle. But I’m probably only going to do that when I feel like it as well (although more than here).
Hope everyone has a great week and a fantastic fall season!
Just wanted to check in and let you know I’m still alive!
We are moved in, mostly settled, still have some work to do, still getting used to the new/old place. My kitchen is smaller so there’s that 😦 And after five years of renters our townhouse is in desperate need of some TLC which we can’t really do right now (too much all at once) so we’ll have to take one thing at a time. Including me getting a job O__O – prayers, well wishes, whatnot for that would be appreciated.
I do have another short story/anthology coming out in August with Torquere. It’s the First Timer’s Anthology and my story is called Finding Home – my first time writing a M/M/M story O__O. Also, it’s shifters 😀
I really need to update my what I’m reading list because there’s a lot, but that’ll be for another week.
Hope all is well.
Gonna be brief today – sorry long time no post, but baseball, parents, deadlines OI!
Two deadlines this Friday – one for the GoodReads thing and another for both the edits and the marketing info for Life Happens for Torquere.
That will pretty much be what I’m working on all week. If I have time, I’ll try to write on the next Torquere project or get back into editing my novels /o\
Hope everyone is doing well!
It’s been tough getting back into the writing thing, I’m not going to lie about that. Seems studying and the stress of that exam kinda chilled my mojo /o\ I’m slowly getting back into the groove.
Keeping that in mind, I’m going to keep the goals reasonable. 1K a day along with some editing. With the thought process of increasing it to 1.5K a day next week and 2K the week after that (which would put me back up to speed).
My top priority right now is the GoodReads Love Is An Open Road – which reminds me OMG I have to have a title by April 1st O__O titles are ALWAYS super hard for me to come up with and usually the LAST thing I do. Great, something else to stress over LOL. I’m just over 5K and the two most crucial scenes are written, along with 1.5 more. So I need to get on it and get it done.
Second priority is my planned submission for the Torquere’s First Timer’s Anthology.
Editing priorities – the sequel to A Watched Demon and my NaNo from 2008.
And that’s what I’m working on 😀
Hope you all have a good week.
Hi everyone! *waves*
And wow, it feels good!!! First things first, obviously, I passed my certification exam so that is a HUGE load off my shoulders / WOOOO HOOOOOO
Second, I sent off “Life Happens” a short story for the Torquere Family Time Anthology *fingers crossed* they accept it.
So what am I working on? HA HA HA HA HA My plate is so full /o\ I signed up for the GoodReads Love Is An Open Road Event – you can find the prompt I chose here: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/2236841-dear-author-ruthie#comment_form Obviously, it is top priority right now seeing as how the deadline is May 1, 2015 O__O
Next up is a submission for the Torquere First Times Anthology – still very much a work in progress.
Still continuing to edit my Navy NP/Ortho Doc novel from NaNo way back when. Also editing, A Pinch Of Salt – the sequel to A Watched Demon Always Boils. When those two finish I’m thinking about pulling out the NaNo I did AFTER the Navy NP/Ortho Doc and edit it and see about subbing it someplace.
Then along with all of that, I’m contemplating something for the Torquere Exchange of Power Anthology, the Sleigh Ride Dreamspinner Advent Calendar, and the Torquere Love in Uniform Anthology.
I’m still working on a sequel to Cast The First Stone and I’m starting to have thoughts about a sequel to Fixing The Hole. And yes, that het novel is still poking at me…
So there you have it, all that I’m working on O__O. If you have anything you’d like to see in either the sequel to Cast The First Stone or Fixing The Hole – drop me a comment, I cannot make ANY guarantees, but it’s always nice to hear what people want.
Until Wednesday, have a great couple of days!
Hello Monday…we meet again. *sigh*
The kid finally went back to school / – not as much complaining as I thought there would be. I’m going to attempt to be productive today, but DAMN my workout on Friday kicked my ASS and I was still feeling it a little bit this morning when I went to workout – so I expect a nap will be happening sometime this afternoon.
Not much got done last week, almost zero editing and only 2.5K – because the kid had not one, not two but FOUR snow days. So the kid has not been in school for TEN DAYS in a row O__O. Needless to say, what little free time I had, I had to use to focus on studying. So there you go.
With that in mind, my exam is in one week, so I’m dialing everything down except for studying. I’m dropping my writing goal to 10K by Friday 6 March. My editing goal (to do a little bit each day) will remain the same. I won’t be posting anymore until after the exam either, so my next post will not be until Friday 6 March. Then you’ll get a Fun Friday 😀
Hope everyone has a great two weeks!
