Someone asked me what a writer’s week is like. Usually they ask about our days, so I figured I’d keep a running log to show what a writer does over the course of a week.
Posted on IG. Smudge did not want to get off my lap so I could get to work this morning.
Eventually I got to work:
Communicated with Virtual Assistant (also known as She Who Keeps Me Relatively Sane — SWKMRS) about changes/corrections to website, updating back matter of books, what’s on tap for the next couple of months.
Felt swamped by overwhelm about how much I have to accomplish over the next couple of months. Considered curling into a ball and pulling the blankets over my head. Thanked SWKMRS for the acknowledgement and mini pep talk. I CAN DO THIS.
Dealt with a cover artist about a couple of things. (Cool things but can’t reveal them yet.)
Checked out a new marketing resource recommended by a reader. (Put it on my running To Do list to get to eventually.)
Wrote until I reached my word count goal for my secret project. (I’ll tell you about that next month.)
Reread the letter from my story editor regarding The Hitwoman Owes a Favor. (It’s 10.5 pages long.)
Worked on story edits for Favor through Chapter 15. (This is my 3rd pass on story edits after receiving the letter and editor’s manuscript comments.)
Sent VA a quick email about Favor marketing.
Paid cover artist. Downloaded art.
Had a small nervous breakdown about Dropbox.
Emailed VA re: covers
Wrote a couple pages of Hitwoman 26
A whole flurry of emails to VA. (Some business, some just friendly (often these revolve around food, lol).
Wrote a couple more pages of Hitwoman 26. (Only wrote 1031 words total, not the 1500 I’d planned for.)
Wrote a page of my passion project. (This is different than my secret project.)
Sketched out what I need to write for Hitwoman 26 tomorrow.
Wrote out tomorrow’s To Do list.
Posted this blog, lol.
