Weekly writing check-in: Minnesnowta

Because this is Minnesota, and we really can’t help ourselves, I give you pictures from #Blizzard2018.

Before the storm   

After the storm

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.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with all the snow

snow

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.

  • Photoshop tutorials

When life hands you lemons … or an early snowfall

Here’s one thing you can do:

After getting completely soaked, they came inside, drank hot chocolate with extra marshmallows, and played board games. It felt a lot like December instead of October. I’m hoping for a few nice days before Halloween since we haven’t made our annual Halloween movie yet.
