I feel like I have spurts of activity here, and I don’t mean to disappear. I do keep up with the people I’m following as best as I can, but sometimes I don’t have a lot to report on my writing front, or life in general I guess.
Spring is here so I’m in a de-clutter mode. Plus, when you live in Chicagoland, when the deep freeze is over, people start wanting to do things and come out of hibernation. So, we’ve got more to do now that it’s nice out. I’m loving to get back to walking my dogs in the warm weather.
Writing is going slowly, but I’m still participating in Camp NaNoWriMo and steadily moving along. My short story is called “Petra’s Revenge” and the more that I think it’s only going to be around 7K, it might end up being 10K in word count. Ah, so it goes.
I’m finalizing the cover for Killer Orange. I’ve been slacking on it even though I’m determined this week to get back to editing. Making the cover has given me some inspiration. I will do a cover reveal in May. So, coming soon!
I have such great support for my books. My husband is of course, is my biggest cheerleader and I don’t know what I would do without him. He even went so far to make me a fan art cover for Killer Orange. It’s ridiculous and made in Paint, but it’s just so like him to be wacky like that, to be encouraging and silly.
But it’s cool to see unlikely sources ask about my books and writing; friends of friends, in-laws, and even my boss.
I’m thankful for warm fuzzy feelings.
Well, back to the real world! Good luck with everything, guys.
Yay for short stories! What do you plan on doing with Petra’s Revenge once it’s done?
Drafting a few times, throwing it at an editor and hope for a Summer release. I started the book cover. Then work on story #2. Repeat. 🙂
Yay for progress of any kind and in any form! Can’t wait to see the cover reveal :-).
Good luck with the Camp NaNo progress, and the Killer Orange cover! It’s great you have your husband’s support, too, that’s invaluable 🙂
Warm weather always feels so good! 🙂
It’s gotten cold again here in Chicago. It definitely feels better when it’s warmer. I feel more productive.
Urgh, I hope it gets better then! Yeah, I’m the same, it makes me feel so much more energetic. Lovely feeling 🙂
