Pulp Writing Speed Day 55 – September Results; Plans for October; What the Heck do I Want to Write This Week?!


September is over!  What happened? Let’s take a look!

September started strong as I attempted to write a novel in a week. After getting a little over 20k into it, I didn’t like where it was going, so I set it aside. The rest of the month went to editing Died for You, which pretty much took all month.

September also saw the end of my first writing streak as I took a two-day vacation. When I came back, I missed a few more days.

September was my third best month for writing, behind April and August.

I did, however, just finish editing Died for You. I’m just getting my notes back from my editing/proofreading team, which brings me to October.


  • Died for You will release this week digitally, and a week later in paperback.
  • Indie Author Day is October 14th. I’ll be at the Buhl Public Library selling books, and hopefully, Died for You.
  • I’m setting a goal to write three shorter works in the first three weeks of October.
  • I will write a full-length novel in a month.
  • I will edit Hungry Gods 3. Because I should stop ignoring it.

With all of that said, I have no idea what I’m going to commit to writing in October. I guess it should be horror.

I started a short story yesterday, which I’ll try to finish this week, but it’s a side project. I just needed something to work on yesterday. It’s also under a pen name, so nothing fancy.


So today I need to decide what I’m going to write. I’ll go through my list of ideas and figure out for sure what to start. I only have Sunday, Wednesday, and Thursday available for a decent word count.

I need to commit to a short book for the week, and a novel for the month. I’ll let you know tomorrow.
