My Goal: Finish revising my friggin’ book already!
The road to my goal: 250-500 words on workdays and 500-1000 on my days off.
The sometimes detour when I get stuck: Plot the next book.
Progress. Not big, but still, forward movement. Sunday I didn’t write except some upcoming blog posts. Monday I wrote 300 and something and Tuesday another 250. So, I met my goals and finished up a particularly difficult chapter. To be honest, I’m still not in love with it, but I’m not going to stress. Probably something for crit partners to help with. That’s all folks!
And now . . . Mandatory Reads! Everything I
demand recommend you read this week.
Seems heroines were on the mind of a few bloggers last week. You simply must check out Thoughts on YA ParaRom and a bit of Wicked Lovely by Susan Bischoff, A Different Kind of Strength In Supernatural Hero/ines by Kait Nolan and Mythic Monday: The Heroine by Amy Rose Davis. Strong ladies, telling it like it is when it comes to strong heroines.
Next is a great post by Bob Mayer called What Does It Take To Succeed in Self-Publishing. As someone who’s worked both sides of the publishing fence and knows what it takes to succeed, you should do yourself a favor and take his advice.
Like fun? I have your next destination. Jen Kirchner has started an ongoing fantasy story, The Relic. At the the end of each installment, (new ones every Friday) YOU get to decide what happens next. Voting is over for part one, but if you get in now, you’ll be ready for part two. Anne-Mhairi Simpson has a similar choose your own adventure fantasy on her blog. The Elemental Races. New installments go up every Tuesday. I
STRONGLY recommend you check them BOTH out.
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.
Did you miss my guest post on Jennifer Joseph’s blog? It was about the Avengers and JLA movies and which one I think will be better. If I can give my horn a light toot, I think it was FINE piece.
