It looks like the new posting schedule is a success, and thanks to everyone who stopped by for the first Everyday Romance post. I’ve got more stories like that coming up! This week, the first “He Said/She Said” interview that I think you’ll really enjoy (I know I enjoyed reading it).
I’m glad you all enjoy the Notable Posts so much – thanks for the great comments. I’m trying to pick a good mix of posts for readers, writers, and some just for fun, so hopefully there’s a little something for everyone.
If you’re looking for something to read, check out Samantha Hunter’s new release, Make Your Move – available in both print and ebook from Harlequin. I’ve read it – it’s excellent. Read it with frosted cookies nearby….
This Week on The Variety Pages
Monday: News & Goals
Tuesday: Construction Zone – How Writing is Like Math
Wednesday: Everyday Romance – He Said/She Said, Brooklyn & Damian
Friday: Chapter 17 of Indelibly Inked
Saturday: Notable Posts
As for the goals – those were kind of “iffy” last week. I made decent progress, but hit stumbling blocks with both my serial novel and HPC that slowed me down more than I would have liked. I also realized that trying to do these major revisions on HPC late at night is really not working. Late night, my creativity is pretty high, but that’s not what I need for revising. For revisions, I need logic and analytical thinking – and I’m best at that in the afternoon, unfortunately. I’m going to try to work on my revisions earlier in the day/evening, and see if that will help. I’ll move the draft of Hearts on Trial into the late night “creative” slot for drafting, and see how that works. That’s the thing about working with your own natural “flow” – sometimes it takes awhile to get it right.
– Finish revisions for Ch. 3 & 4 on HPC
– Finish revised outline for Tempest
– Draft 1000 more words for Hearts on Trial
– Ch. 17 of Indelibly Inked
– Start the cucumbers/marigolds for the garden
– Complete & send in interview questions for blog interview
– Write guest post for another blog
– Vacuum (to make room for more dog hair)
– Clean off the dining room table (haven’t seen it in weeks)
– Update Goodreads (I’m behind again)
That’s it for me – what are you up to this week? Read any good books lately?
