This structure of reporting twice each week keeps me focused on writing -- and on some of those other goals, like marketing, that I tend to overlook.
MARKETING PLUNGE. As a thank you to readers and perhaps a way to reach out to new readers, I'm running a 99c promotion for all three of my books just today (May 20) and tomorrow (May 21). I'll report back next week and let you know how this went.
WRITING UPDATE. So far, I'm still writing 750 words a day since May 1. I'm feeling a bit scattered, so I'm experimenting with writing on several different projects (and counting those words!).
---Revisions and drafting for Rivers of Stone.
---Preliminary work on a novella that tells the story of Moira and Dylan (research just beginning).
---Editing a chapter a week for Mothers Don't Die (serial killer thriller).
---Prep for that June workshop on memoir. As someone once said, "I want to live forever. So far, so good."
AND PENDING: All else from Sunday's post. But I will persevere. The outlook for my friend's husband is not good at all. The cancer is a particularly aggressive one with many challenges ahead. I am grateful for the communities of support that sustain us all.
May your week go well. Check out what other ROW80 writers are doing HERE.
