Okay, not really. I’m not even sure if I’ve had a pumpkin spice latte.
I love pumpkin scones, and bread, and muffins, and pie … and… and.
You get the idea.
This week, I wrote two complete flash stories and started a third.
I’ve also been contemplating 2020 and what I might do, writing-wise.
2019 wasn’t my best year for productivity. I’m mulling on that, starting small (see above about the flash fiction stories), and I have some plans for what I might do.
And that’s all I’m going to say at this point. Yeah, I know, vague-blogging. But the other thing I’ve come to realize this year is I’m not one of those writers who can talk projects while working on them.
In the mood for some spooky reading? Grab some free and 99 cent books this weekend and get ready for Halloween.
Quick check-in today. Got another short story written this week, and now I’m tired. (But not because I wrote a short story; possibly, though, the laundry is making me tired.)
So I’m calling it a night and a very short check-in. More next week.
Fill up your e-reader over at the October Book Fair!
More low stakes practice this week. This tutorial was on thriller covers (I think that’s fairly obvious, but just in case …).
This isn’t a real book. Callie Robb isn’t a real author (that I know of–Callie, if you’re out there and would like these covers, let me know). A Cressview Thriller isn’t a thing (again, that I know of). But it’s more fun than going with author name and fake series name.
In writing news, I worked on an exercise and a bit on the Coffee and Ghosts story. And … that’s it for this week.
A fabulous collection of free fantasy and science fiction books to fill your e-reader for October.
Just a quick check-in today. It was a busy week; I didn’t get a ton of writing done, but I started work on a Coffee and Ghosts story, so there’s that.
And it’s October, which means I get to post about ghosts, and coffee, and all things Halloween all month long.
So, if you’re in the mood for something a little bit spooky (but not too spooky), you can always listen to the first episode for free.
