If I recall correctly, I was making a post rather similar to this more than a month ago, but here I am, back from another strange, unintended break. The crux of the problem this time was the roommate with the cable bill moving out and canceling it, needing to get a new service, and just a really weird, general ennui about the whole Intrawebz thing. Really, I am my own worst enemy: I wasn’t able to keep up my goals for Heartless, and so I just kept spiraling down, down, down and had absolutely no motivation for anything. But yesterday, I finally broke through the funk, finished transcribing the draft, and now I plan to forge ahead and edit the crap out of it before I seek out some beta readers for June.
There’s definitely plenty to do ahead, too, so at least I won’t have a lack of things to post about. I’m waaaay behind on my reviews (including one for Lauralynn Elliott‘s latest Fire Wizard), I’ve got a few more recipes to share, and a boatload of other stuff intended. I think my biggest downfall has been my process; I’ve realized that if I don’t get my blog post up first thing, then it usually doesn’t get done at all. So blog post first, then I’ll focus on all my lovely writing and editing, and hopefully that leads to a more productive blog again.
Somehow, May sneaked up on me pretty effectively, so I hope to have a new Featured Story from World Unknown Review up soon (so check out Shan Jeniah Burton‘s “A Splash of Red” before it’s gone!), and it’s also time to promote my books to get in my goal of ONE SALE per month. Of course, it’s only ONE SALE, so if anyone hasn’t jumped into a Bowlful of Bunnies yet or want to dive into The Slayer Saga before Book II comes out in August, help me out and do so now! The digital books are only 99 cents and the paperbacks are pretty reasonable, too.
On a separate note entirely, it looks like I’ve accumulated 555 follows, and I have a thing with neat numbers like that, so that’s pretty cool.
How’s everyone else been doing while I’ve been out in la-la land?
