This morning I woke up to frost.

It's a lot of frost this morning.

A post shared by Garth Wright (@gswrite) on

Anyway, here’s the official week 2 accountability post!

WRITING

The Goal: Write Every Day. Hit 2 million words for the year. Write a book a week.

Actual: I wrote 4 out of 7 days. Week Total: 14,421. Daily Average: 2,060. Words per Hour: 2,653. Books Written This Week: 1. O.ne rough draft completed.

January Totals: 31,085 words; Daily Average: 2,391; Words Per Hour: 2,646; Books Written: 3; Books Published: 0

I am still well below averaging high enough for 2 million words for the year, but fortunately, just a little behind for hitting one million. I am still cautiously optimistic for both. As far as writing every day? On those three days, I wasn’t home. As soon as I got off work with the post office, I left again. I did manage to finish something, though.

Spilling Blood episode 14 is complete. I hope to have episode 13 revised this week, and hopefully published by the weekend.

The biggest distractions to writing this week were working for the post office and grinding xp for my Rock Band Crew in the mornings before going to work. I know, I know. I’m playing a game. 😛

I am going to continue and put off adding any other goals until my writing is more stable. This remains the focus.

  • This week I will write something new, I haven’t decided yet.
  • I will complete editing on Spilling Blood 13, get it to my proofreading crew, and get it published.
  • I will up my minimal writing from a minimum of 30 minutes a day to a full hour.

MUSIC

I didn’t get a chance to even touch my guitar last week. I think I will launch my music goal in February. Why because there’s a site called fawm.org. That’s February Album Writing Month. Hell, why not?

OTHER

As far as putting off my other goals, I think I will add back in one. Social Media, and specifically, Instagram. I will post at least one photo a day this week, and more as I can. Please follow me. 🙂

AWtrilogycover

What do you do when pirates kidnap you for a ransom and a mad scientist injects you with a powerful and inevitably fatal concoction of aether?

You get revenge. 
Matilda Katrine Myra is no one special, but her pirate abductors don’t know that. When they boldly kidnap her from an airship and sweep her away into the deadly wasteland of mutants and poisonous radiation, her life becomes a day to day battle to evade death.

And she’s much closer to death than ever. A mad scientist has injected her with toxic condensed aether, the air of the gods, and now she’ll need frequent doses just to survive each day. With a dwindling supply, she’ll have to battle mutants, mad scientists, pirates, and the spirits of the dead.

The tool of her fate, a gauntlet feeding the condensed aether into her veins, is also a potent weapon. It can focus the aether into a death ray. She can also see the dead, women who suffered the fate Matilda is fighting to avoid.

Along with a wasteland traveler and his clockwork dragon as her only allies, and despite the powers gifted to her by the aether, the one thing she doesn’t have is time.

With passion and intrigue, adventure and swashbuckling in an apocalyptic world, Apocalypse Witch is a dystopian steampunk adventure of non-stop excitement. This novel collects the three books of the Apocalypse Witch Trilogy, Apocalypse Witch, Memento Mori, and Shadow Falls.

Jump on over to Amazon and grab your digital copy! The paperback will be out in a few weeks.

Monday Update #4

Avenger Dogs
Went and saw the new Avengers movie this weekend. That has nothing to do with this post. Carry on.

A few weeks ago I decided I’m going to write/publish a book a week for 52 weeks. I can cheat (because I made my own rules) and count bundles toward my publishing total. You know the game, now for the damage:

Week 3: No new books completed. I published Soul Sister. Because most of the writing went to editing SOUL SISTER and getting SPILLING BLOOD SEASON II ready for print, I only wrote 1,732 words last week. For all of April I wrote 34,785 words. I actually released a total of 4 books in April, too. Only three of them count toward the goal, though. 🙂 WEEK 3 of 52: 3 Written/3 Published.

This Week’s Goals:

  1. Finish Apocalypse Witch 3
  2. Get Soul Sister ready for a print edition
  3. Write something else

SOUL-SISTER-COVER

 

 

 

Monday Update #3

52 Books in 52 Weeks – Week 3

tumblr_mpa1vstnbl1rb324eo1_500I am writing/releasing 52 books in 52 weeks. Week two is over. Week 2: 1 book written. I finished Soul Sister on Friday. I’m making a few changes for the second draft. It will go through my proofreaders one more time (hopefully) and it’ll be released (again, hopefully) this week. I’m very excited to share it with you. It’s my favorite story from my muse so far. Words Written Last Week: 11,882. Average: 2,376 a day across 5 days. All of my time went to finishing Soul Sister. Week 2 of 52: 3 written, 2 published.

This Week’s Projects

  1. Get Soul Sister polished and beautiful and released.
  2. Finish Apocalypse Witch Book 3.
  3. Spilling Blood Season 2 needs a paperback edition… STILL!!!

BONUS!

This isn’t really a bonus, but a reminder. Did you know you can still read Death Storm (Hungry Gods Book 1) for FREE? I’m just throwing that out there because you’ll be seeing Book 3 in about two months and that will give you time to read the first two books with very little wait for the conclusion. You can find Death Storm at any of your favorite ebook distributors. It’s everywhere, seriously. cover-teaser
