#ROW80 Update Plus a Reading Recommendation

My Goal: 1 hour, but minimum 30min of writing fiction during workdays and 2 hours any day I’m not working.

My writing hasn’t been plentiful, but neither has my time.  That’s okay.  I’ve made progress and kept my head in my story, so whenever I go back to it, I’ll do more writing and less staring at my page.  I’m excited because I’m about to drop a metaphoric bomb in my vampire’s lap.  He won’t be happy, conflict will ensue, Andrew smiles.

Besides that, I’d like to mention an anthology just released featuring ROW80 founder Kait Nolan and fellow Row80er and sponsor, Susan Bischoff.  Their stories are excellent, which I’m not saying because they’re my friends or they asked.  I really think any paranormal fans who read these stories are in for a good time.

The anthology is called Kiss Me, Kill Me and includes seven other indie authors besides Kait and Susan.  Zoe Winters, H.P. Mallory, and another fellow ROW80er and sponsor, Stacey Wallace Benefiel to name a few.  The whole book costs 99 cents and proceeds go to charity.  It’s a great deal in my opinion.  Kait’s post from yesterday will give you a good description of all the stories featured.  And Susan also mentioned there’s DRM protection on the Kindle and probably Nook versions of the book.  If this is important to you, the link at the beginning of this paragraph takes you to smashwords for a DRM free copy.

Sound good?  Hope so.  I’ve already gotten some cool reading recommendations from ROW80 peeps, what’s everyone reading now?

Info stuff- Follow my ROW80 progress every Wednesday and Sunday and be here Tuesdays and Thursdays for new posts on me, writing, superheroes, monsters, comics and any other geeky stuff on my mind.

  1. Poor little vampire. At least you’re keeping your head in the game when you don’t have the time to get stuff down on paper. I’m trying to get into that frame of mind myself.

  2. I think that’s one of the most important things, staying engaged with your story even if you’re not actively working on it. If there’s one thing I hate, it’s the fact that ideas/inspiration always comes to me when I don’t have time to write 😦 lol

    • Yeah, it’s so weird how ideas come to us when we have nowhere to put them. I actually try to occupy my mind so it doesn’t have a chance to think up that stuff when I’m not ready.

  3. Any progress is good progress. 🙂

    Good idea about keeping your head in your story (or is that “story in your head”?) so there’s less page-staring when you should be writing. I call it “mind-writing.” I’m getting back into that method, now that it’s the home stretch.

    • When I did NaNo, I was pretty good about jumping back in where I left off and that was because I was writing everyday. Just have to keep telling myself to do that for this challenge.

  4. I loves me some vampires! I’m beta reading a novel and also reading Richelle Mead’s Succubus Blues. My “to be read” stack is so tall (metaphorically speaking since many are in digital format) it’s embarrassing.

    Keeping your head in the story is definitely forward momentum. I always find that’s time well spent.

  5. I know exactly what you mean by keeping the story in your head. Isn’t it great to be able to leap back into the story when writing time is available. Rather like having one’s own playground.

  6. Keeping your head in the story is important even when you’re not actually writing. It makes it easier to write when the time comes.

    You asked what we are reading. Funny that you should mention Kiss Me, Kill Me…that’s what I’m reading. LOL
