She is here.
She is here.
So, it went from cold to the middle of winter. On Monday, we ended up with +6 inches of snow. Thursday, we had that odd Minnesota concoction of snow showers with thunder. Then the sky was all orange for a bit.
This week, I was busy with the 2020 project. I have all but two stories scheduled, so I think it’s safe to say I’m in the home stretch. As of right now, the full compilation has 101,000 words. (That’s a lot of words.)
I also had a little fun with a one-off project (more about that on Monday).
In time-sink news, Photoshop has released neural filters and sky replacement. I give you the backyard, Van Gogh style.
I predict many hours wasted.
Because this is Minnesota, and we really can’t help ourselves, I give you pictures from #Blizzard2018.
We’ve been snowed in all weekend. The pizza place where my daughter works called and told her not to come in for either shift this weekend. Her snow-day makeup dance class was canceled because of the snow.
In actual writing news, it was a slow week. I did manage to do some work on an article and some fairy tale reading and research. I sent out a reprint story as well.
And that’s about it. Now, I must leave you and go take some more pictures of the snow.
Because that’s what we do here in Minnesota.
This was the week with all the snow. Well, a foot of snow, anyway. It was a good week for doing some revision.
At first, I didn’t think I did that much work. Then, I added it up.
I revised The Ghost That Got Away, did a content edit/light revision on The Wedding Ghost, and for the sake of story/world building continuity, reread Ghosts of Christmas Past.
Um. Yeah. That’s close to 90,000 words total.
That’s a lot of words. And a lot of ghosts.
This upcoming week I hope to put the final touches on The Ghost That Got Away and unleash it into the world. Stay tuned.
