Writer’s Life March 10, 16

Thursday was a good writing day. Though the word count was just okay, I knocked out a short story, edited it, designed a cover, and sent it out into the world. Because I have three short stories with a similar theme, they were all packaged into a bundle, which I will release on a rainy day (like next week). FYI – those are under pen names.

Apocalypse Witch is moving forward. Aside from the writing, the editing is proceeding nicely. I kind of expected to have Spilling Blood 12’s 1st draft completed this week, but I don’t see that happening any sooner than Sunday. Maybe I’ll give it a full hour of writing, today.

That’s something of interest, which is also kind of sad. 🙂 I write for maybe two hours or so a day, and give around 4 projects my attention. That’s usually moving any given project forward by 800 to 1100 words every day. It’s great for the short stories. If I have two going at the same time, I can release a short story every two or three days, targeting, of course, 5000 words. The longer projects, even something as short as 15k, still stretches out. I don’t think the goal is to change the focus of what gets my writing time, instead, I’d rather get in more writing time than just two hours. Frankly, I spend a lot more time working on my books than just 2, but there’s other stuff, such as editing, marketing, and cover design. So yes, more writing time.
