Weekly writing check-in: the one with another deep freeze

 

You guys, it’s so cold here I’m not stepping out on the deck to take a picture. It’s making those horrible cracking sounds that have you think the whole thing is going to splinter beneath your feet.

It’s been another quiet week. I was really busy at work, so I’m pleased with the word count and tutorials I did manage. I should probably check to see if I have any reprints to send out. Or just wait. I’m bound to get some of the eight stories I have on submission back very soon.

Stay warm, everyone!

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the deep freeze

wintercoldIt’s one of those mornings where it’s so bright outside you’re convinced it must be warm as well.

You would be wrong.

It’s a balmy negative eleven at the moment.

It’s a good day to stay inside and write or read or really do anything that doesn’t involve opening the door to the outside.

A quiet week this week–I think everyone is hibernating. No rejections and I didn’t send anything out, either. I did manage brand new words after finishing up the brainstorming and outlining of episode 3.

And that’s about it for this cold, cold day.

None, but if you haven’t listened to Ghost in the Coffee Machine over at The Drabblecast, you really should. I’m still so excited about what a wonderful production they put together.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the cold

Xmas CatA quiet week with a bit of a cold snap–and a cold for me.

Even so, I got some writing work in. I’m working on a short story, did some design reading, and spent a wonderful few hours writing at the coffee shop yesterday while my daughter was at a holiday party.

One rejection, a fast one (I don’t mind those, plus it was a very nice personal one). I’ll have to search out another market this week.

And that’s about it. It’s kind of nice to have a quiet week after the flurry of activity of two releases within two weeks of each other. (Yeah. That was kind of crazy.)

Cold

Not really the weather, since it’s a balmy 31 degrees according to my weather widget–and sunny. But me, and Miss B. We. Have. Colds. Or coughs. (Or cough-es, as she used to say, because that’s more than one cough.)

I’m wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt, plus I have my old school, velour-lined hoodie on the back of my writing chair–just in case.

However, the house is filled with restorative things:

  • The Republic of Tea’s Kiwi Pear Green Tea–with honey.
  • Pecan pie (recipe here–so good).
  • Pumpkin pie (you wouldn’t want to neglect a pie–it might hurt its feelings)
  • Being on page 321 of 343 of the edit for The Fine Art of Holding Your Breath
  • Having a good excuse to hibernate and finish it.
