Weekly writing check-in: Keeping Time in the New Year

I’m going to switch things up a bit for the New Year. When I started my weekly check-in, I was spending the year doing a write one/sub one with short stories. That was a great year. It got me back into writing on a regular basis and reminded me why I love writing to begin with.

But I’m not writing as many short stories as I did that first year. Or rather, I tend to binge-write them. Also, this year, I hope to focus on longer, series work. (Now that I’ve stated that, just watch. I’ll end up on some sort of short story tear.)

So I’m going to change my check-in a bit, just covering what I did the previous week. I’ll still log submissions made, stories sold and published, but the format will be more free form.

Without further ado, I give you my week:

This week

Writing: ~3,500 words, plus outlining and structure work. I can see the end from here, but I’m not quite in the home stretch. Almost though. And I may be closer than I suspect.

Published: Keeping Time is in audio over at The Centropic Oracle. They’ve done a fabulous job with the production, and the narrator is marvelous. She brings so much to my little story. If you have seven minutes to spare, go give it a listen.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the museum overnight

OwlA short update today, since I’m in recovery mode from my daughter’s Girl Scout troop overnight at the (scouting) museum last night.

Was it fun? Yes. Yes, it was. Did any of us get to bed before 2:00 a.m.? No. No we did not.

But where else can you have an indoor campfire, visit with owls, and eat s’mores after midnight?

I did come home to a nice surprise. The Secret Life of Sleeping Beauty is now in audio over at Cast of Wonders. It’s in  episode 121, and I love the narrator they selected for the story.

Writing Work:

  • The Time After ~5,266 words
