You could have seen this post earlier on my Patreon.
Since I’m signed up for his newsletter, I went ahead and opted into Jeff Goins’ 500 Words Challenge. And so far, I’m doing pretty good! I think the only day I’ve missed was January first since I signed up for the challenge on the second.
I have been focusing on book 4 in the First Brood series since that’s the one I want to finish the most. Don’t worry. I’m still putting around with my other projects but First Brood 4 is what’s really been on my mind.
I know on the blog it says blogging counts but I haven’t been counting it because it’s the stories that will hopefully be providing me with the income I desperately need. Since I’ve built the momentum, I hope I can complete this challenge!
The editing for Lost Brother (the third book in my First Brood series) had gone through its first round! There’s a ton to change around, add, and organize so don’t expect this anytime soon.
In the meantime, I have been catching up on my reviews and have some very interesting projects coming down the pipe. I’ve got at least two other series in development.
Aside for writing, I do have some needlework ready to go up in my shop and my decluttering efforts have been paying off! Over at my Patreon, one of the perks is that I would make videos but I had to clear away the space where I would make the videos. After some very cathartic purging, things are lookin pretty nice! 2017 is shaping up to be ok so far (aside for politics but the time to discuss that will come).
Obviously, since NYCC just wrapped up, I haven’t written in several days. But being around all those awesome cosplayers and amazing books, my muse is psyched and ready to go.
Not much of an update but I managed to get through all four days of NYCC so I’m exhausted, sore, and broke. I gotta say, tho: the cosplay turned out amazing and since I’ve been doing C25K, I am in better shape s0 all that walking and getting jostled around in such a bog crowd – and taking the kiddo with me two of those days. The fact I don’t feel like a giant bruise tells me I’m doing something right.
Anyways, back on track with my writing and book three will have a complete rough draft soon!
When I posted about this before I only had 676 MB left. And with some diligent reading (and the wifi still off) I am now up to 681 MB free!
… And 47 downloads pending when I finally turn it back on.
But hey! It’s a start, right?
Some of these are more prepub books for me to review so they’re a little longer than those little free smutty books I’ve been reviewing. I also got some really interesting spiritual books from my free newsletters but it’s those prepubs that are taking up a lot of the space.
That wasn’t enough space to have the kindle organize books again; it still ignores me when I try to put a book into a collection. I’m gonna have to get through a LOT more books before I can download the books still in the cloud.
I have been terrible about updating but I have been so disgustingly busy. I will be updating on a normal-ish basis this month. ^_^
Winter Boot is done and ready for posting. Book three is coming along at a pace I did NOT expect. 0.0 The words are flying our of the pen. It’s amazing. I am postulating a new story for Fiction Friday (something I’ve already started… No new projects) and slowly but surely my project list is whittling down.
I dunno if you’ve been following my Twitter or Shelfari accounts but I have also been reading like all get out. I seem to be on a horror kick lately, which will have to stop soon because it’s fucking depressing. But I’ll be twice damned if the books aren’t amazing.
I have also posted another book review. Read. Enjoy. Comment. 🙂
Ah, yes. It has been too long since I’ve written an update for you guys so here’s what Lenni has been up to.
It’s still been a short story blitz for me these days with a little editing in between. I have learned that there will be no after camp program for my daughter this summer so after turning my schedule into absolute knots to make sure I can pick her up and drop her off, I am more motivated than ever to try and make more money for my writing. Not just to make more to pay down the mortgage early but to be able to afford to pay for a nanny or a bus service to make sure my daughter is in a safe place so I can work my regular hours.
I don’t know why the school district’s camp thinks other parents work like teachers and are off in the summer. It’s very annoying. T_T
But if I’m making more money with my books, I can afford to take leave without pay if I must to get my daughter to where she needs to be or hire someone to watch her. I dunno if anyone would like to donate to the cause of getting the hell outta debt as soon as humanly possible, links to all my books are here. More will be showing up as I finish them. There’s also merchandise and illustrated chapters of the vampire novel up for purchase. 🙂 If you like, pass it along and leave reviews. Reviews feed the author machine. 😉
As I’m sure you are aware, Fiction Friday was skipped last week. This was because I straight up lost the notebook Winter Boot is in. I found it. ^_^We should be getting back on track now.
