Weekly writing check-in: the one with the mice

Did you know that when mice chew up your internet cable, you lose connectivity? I know. Crazy. Also, the new construction down the road didn’t help matters either.

I got my writing in this week, but didn’t send anything out. This is the last week of my InDesign classes, so all my spare time was spent working on the final assignments. Challenging but fun.

Next week, I hope to get a few more things out. On the plus side, everything I have out is still out there. No rejections this week either.

And … you may have noticed, I’m changing things up a bit. I am writing–a lot. And I will return to short stories (possibly next month), but I haven’t truly been doing the Write 1/Sub 1 challenge this year. I love doing the check in (it keeps me honest).

So, new name, pretty much the same content.

Writing Work:

  • The Time After ~5,000 words

Submissions:

  • None this week

Rejections:

  • None

  • None

Ghost in the Coffee Machine_finalWell, would you look at that. Ghost in the Coffee Machine is its own thing now. A thing you can buy at many fine e-retailers, too.

Not only that, you can buy it for less than a cup of coffee. How often can you say that these days?

For the curious and thirsty, pour yourself a cup of coffee and then download a cup full of ghosts from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, or Smashwords.

Write 1/Sub 1 check in: the one with the mad scientist

W1S1 2014 - Monthly ChallengeA little less writing this week since I’m still doing class work for the Adobe InDesign classes I’m taking. Still, I’m not complaining about +5,000 words.

This is also the reason I haven’t sent any submissions back out. But it’s spring break this week and I hope to get a few more things submitted, a few more words written, and my classwork completed.

We’ll see if I can make this happen.

Writing Work:

  • The Time After ~5,833 words

Write 1/Sub 1 check in: the one with a long winter

W1S1 2014 - Monthly ChallengeSo … I wrote a lot this week (but I’m not sure how much, I haven’t counted the words yet) and I’m this close to finishing my story. I still think I might not be writing as much as I could be. But then, I always think that. I could write an entire novel in a single week, and still think that. So. Yeah. 

I did do some revising work on another story and I hope to send that out in a day or two. 

I also spent a lot of time working through InDesign tutorials. I really love this program and I’m enjoying myself so much, but there’s a lot to learn as well.

In other news, I think we’re all officially sick of winter. You know things are bad when the kids are upset about missing school.

Writing Work:

  • Lawn Mower Serenade ~ still in progress

Submissions:

  • The Girl with the Piccolo (audio market)
  • The Life Expectancy of Fireflies
