Day 21

Well hello, dear reader,

Well, I have had an interesting couple of days at my day job. I don’t know if it is the impending full moon on Friday or the anticipation of the Thanksgiving holiday, but things just seem to be extra crazy around here.

And yes, there is a full moon on Black Friday, so if you are one of those adrenaline junkies that like to shop on Black Friday, be extra careful. To be honest you will not catch me so much as driving past a retail store this coming weekend. I’m taking advantage of the shopping madness to go to a few museums and write. I am counting on the fact that the museums will be empty while the stores are full.

Personally, I like to shop small and local. I support other small business the way I hope someone will support my business of self-publishing my books.

If you are in the U.S. and celebrating Thanksgiving I wish you all the best and safe travels. I will likely not be writing tomorrow or if I do it will be very late so probably not in time to give you a county for Day 22. The good news is that today is Day 21 and I have 2,096 words so far today. So I’ve met my goal even if I do not write anymore. Hopefully, I will have time to add some words to the story. Things have taken a bad turn and Malone and the crew of the Star Venture is stuck on Titan with an injured Victoria “Six” Collingwood. They need a way to get her home quickly.

There are some exciting things coming up in the next few months, so if you haven’t already make sure you sign up for my newsletter so you can see “it” before anyone else.  I have several fun things lined up for you guys. Not to mention the usual mayhem and madness that goes along with being an indie.

So until Friday. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Day 19

Dear Reader,

I can’t even begin to describe how insane my day was a work today. A continuation of the problem that developed last week that resulted in my having to work this weekend and all the email and phone call I received. I didn’t take a lunch break today so consequently, I didn’t get any writing done until tonight around 10pm. But, I did get 1126 words in before I started to feel the effects of a long day.  I didn’t make it to the 25000-word milestone and earned my badge. So all in all not so bad.

Have you heard about all the interesting things happening with authors Amazon accounts? If not jog on over and listen to the Creative Penn podcast with Joanna Penn. I enjoyed her take on the situation and possible solutions.

We are only a couple of days away from the Thanksgiving holiday and long weekend. It can’t get here soon enough. I’m looking forward to it.

What are your plans for the holiday? drop me a line or send me a picture of your holiday get together.
