    This has been my issue also.

    But definitely every word counts. So I just keep moving forwards. At a far slower pace than I'd like but forwards all the same.


    I wish I had a short story due to an editor. I'm just sitting on a wealth of shorts and flash fiction.

    Brechin - Or bundle them together and sell them. I have one such bundle called In Flames. It's supposed to be an introduction to my work. I have it actually for free, and I've gotten a good number of downloads.


    So my bosses are seeing their bookkeeper on Thursday about dissolving the business. I do believe this is happening.

    Well done, everyone! And Saoirse. Hang in there.

    Wrote 3,111 words today, which would be more impressive if it didn't involve a rewrite of a chapter I did a couple of days ago. But I'm back on track, and I'm actually quite fond of the MS today. That'll pass, of course.
    May goals:

    - WIP #1: Get the draft to 45K - 28,266/45,000
    - WIP #2: Probably nothing for May



    THE COLD BETWEEN - Out now

    REMNANTS OF TRUST - Out now

    That's a good idea! I've been thinking about that for a little while. I'm definitely going to be sending some out, but I very much would like to put them together eventually.

    Sorry about your job. That really sucks.

    YAY! Here's to liking you MS. (At least for today. )

    Good luck with the sub, Brechin, when you decide to send your work out.

    I've been working hard on a few scenes, firming them up, and checking timing - they're close to the end of the book so I have to make sure the timing is spot on. Not sure how many words I've added, or taken away, but progress has been made.

    2,018 today. I'm at one of those moments where I know where the story is going, but I'm still feeling out the next scene. This one has a lot of threads, and it's tricky keeping the right ones in the foreground without losing the rest.

    Thanks, guys.

    No news.

    I need to start writing again. I've been depressed and unproductive. Need to change that.

    muse - That happens with every book I write. I'm convinced it's because I subconsciously don't want to revise.


    I am writing again, yay! It's nonfiction. I'm not ready to discuss it yet, but it's a cool idea. 2k in two days!

    Congrats on writing again, and the word count.

    329 words today, but many more red-penned into oblivion.
