Weekly writing check-in: Y-A-W-N

Oddly enough, I’m not that tired this morning (although, ask me tomorrow how I feel …). I’ve realized I’m at the age where any time change throws me off my stride.

Spring forward? Fall back? Meh. It’s all the same to me.

I worked on a nonfiction query/article this week and did a little bit of story work. My biggest accomplishment was pulling the taxes together (I want to add “like a boss” to the end of that). Off they go to the accountant this week.

I’m also doing a bit of pre-planning for a possible Season Four of Coffee and Ghosts. We’ll see how that goes, but so far, I’m feeling optimistic.

Also? It’s going to be 60 degrees here today! In March! In Minnesota! I’m scheduling at least one walk.

Weekly writing check-in: quick check in

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.

Weekly writing check-in: fun with cover practice

Not a lot of writing this week. I’m playing around with an idea for Coffee and Ghosts. Not so much a sequel, but a look at what happens near the end of the series from Malcolm’s point of view (which is about all I can say without spoilers). I wouldn’t publish this but instead, offer it up as a newsletter bonus.

I am also thinking seriously about Coffee and Dragons, or as seriously as someone can think about Coffee and Dragons. The idea is starting to grow on me. I’m not sure how I’d pull it off, but I am considering the challenge.

I did take some time to have some fun with covers. If these were real covers, I’d spend a lot more time refining the edges around the masks on the cover models, maybe reconsider my font choices, and so on.

This effort was a practice go since I don’t write contemporary romance. Low stakes, just for fun.

Knight here is very Broody McBroody. Or maybe he’s mourning his unfortunate choice in footwear.

Mr. Prince here does look worried about being the prodigal son, no? Or maybe the oven timer’s gone off, and he’s concerned the crust on his par-baked pizza is going to burn.

This guy? This guy is what’s known in Romancelandia as an alpha-hole. You can just tell. Either that, or he really doesn’t like the new engineered hardwood floors.

And that’s it for this last full week of September.
