This time of Walter. He died this January. Still miss the old man. And no, I didn't name him. This photo is from this time in 2017, during his prime. And with that, I have posted something every day for two weeks.
Nothing much to say. So instead of saying something, I'm posting guinea pig photos. On the left is Chloe. She loves hay and when she's not hiding, she spends her days rumble strutting and chasing her room mate about. The rascal on the right is Zoey. She's a cuddle-bug until she isn't, which is when … Continue reading guinea pig photos
Just posting to keep this streak alive. The short story challenge of course is off to a slow start. And that's okay. The clock starts ticking when I turn in the first story. If I don't turn one in this week, at least I'll have a science fiction story to submit into the market, and … Continue reading off to a slow start
Weirdly enough, I didn't write any fiction this weekend. So I had a 20 day streak of every day fiction writing. Nothing awful happened. World didn't come to an end. Just had something come up that made being creative difficult. Now I'm back to normal again. Not worried about lost time or anything. So naturally … Continue reading took a weekend off
A problem I will have as I write short stories going forward, is coming up with sales copy for each of them. What I mean by sales copy is the back cover blurb. If I write a short story a week, I'll need a lot of these blurbs. While they're not necessarily hard to write, … Continue reading DIY Journal: Sales Copy Production
Another late start with writing last night. Put in 400 words on "The Ghost, the Vampire, and the Jock." It's about 9,000 words total at the moment and still feels like I'm in the early stages of the book. And really, I can't say much with what the book is about, because I have no … Continue reading the value of critique
This is how streaks go for me. I sucker myself into going for a week. Then if I went for seven days, why not make it an even ten? If I can do a ten day streak of something, why not twenty? And it goes on from there.... I'm not real hung up about having … Continue reading sure why not?
Almost didn't post today. Because, well, screw it. Nobody cares I only added 200 words to "The Ghost, the Vampire, and the Jock" yesterday. I have no nifty insight into the writing craft today. Mostly I just played Sims 4 and read the news today. But I have a streak going on this blog and … Continue reading only for the seven day streak
I tend to write like a leaky faucet. Drip... drip... drip... 200 words here, 400 there, another 300 there. If I'm in blazing hot streak mode, I might bang out 1000 words in one sitting, but that's rare. It's not something I do on purpose, it's just the way I am. What do I do … Continue reading leaky faucet
Pretty normal day yesterday. Went to work, watched some TV, played a video game. Added 1000 words to the novel. That's about half the average I want to be doing, so I'm making progress. I want to build up to 2000 words a day by the end of the week, and then start the short … Continue reading less of a clue where this is going
