Well, then! Weekends are fun, but apparently, I haven’t done a great job of wrangling my tool out of the hands of my adorable children. That’s okay. They had fun, I got things done.
Yesterday is what I’m here for.
Even though I didn’t write a lot of words (328 fiction words, 575 total words, .5 hours on publication), they felt really, really good. I like where this new story is going, though I don’t have any particular title in mind or even a target for where I’m going. Currently, I have one grumpy adult male, one perky, lonely 8-year-old girl, one out of place butler, and one very perky elementary school principal. The girl causes trouble, the butler is trouble, the principal is trying to prevent trouble, and the grump…well, I’m not sure about him. He’d rather be left alone, I think.
Well, anyway. I like it. I’m going back for more tonight.
Yesterday I also tried to get the ebooks for Space Cats all set up so when I get the print proof and approve it, things can go up for sale relatively at the same time. It worked well with Amazon, not so well with Smashwords. It didn’t take long, so I’ll just do that once I have the print copy ready to go.
Today I didn’t have any particular publishing goal in mind, but I need to work on getting 002 checked, and A Brief History ready for publication, too. And I wanted to have all three books up by the 15th so I could start concentrating on 004 and get it done by the end of the month. Still a possible goal, since I’m only seven days in. I just need to focus.
That’s what the rest of tonight is for, since I’m all caught up with regular chores.
Wish me luck!
