ROW80-1 - 02/23 - Done with Editing
ROW80-1 - 03/26 - One bite at a time

ROW80-1 - 03/08 - Back in Balance

It's been a while, but here I am again, hopefully a little more balanced. I got my second novel back from my beta-reader, with much praise and some suggested tweaks. I've had a bit of a break to watch Netflix and read and socialize here and there, so feel energized again and ready to "get at 'er".  Winter seems to be on its way out too finally, with the temperature NOT dropping to the frigid numbers of just a week or so ago.

  • Publishing/marketing - Sales are still mostly local, one or two at a time, but that still counts. Always a good idea to carry a copy of your book. 
  • Editing - starting again. I'll need that Pomodoro thing again I think.  
  • Writing - none, but I hope to break past that barrier again and start doing some quick and dirty Flash. 
  • Learning
    • I've a Sci-fi/Fantasy critique group tomorrow, so have reviewed two short stories for members, Nothing from me, but this is one way to learn.
    • My writer group had Trevor Ferguson in to talk about the Art of Writing. He talked about creating tension, finding the hero's epiphany, dialogue style, and character development via action and reaction. Action Becomes Character Development - ABCD.
  • Reading
    • I finished Winter Garden for my book club and drafted my review. It was a good story, especially in the second half. 
    • I got a copy of The Book With No Pictures from the library. My oldeest grandson (7) loved it. 
  • Other
    • War Games: Red Dragon - I've played several times with my son. He's quite patient with me. 
    • I had a great night at the pub last week, then basically lost the next day. Pint glasses of draft go down way too easy; I do better with bottles. Getting older means you can still drink - you just can't bounce back as easily.
