A WRITER’S SOUL: My Weekly Goals & Such

Eyes of the Universe, abstract environmental backgrounds

It’s July! Time is flying by. Before you know kids will be heading back to school and we’ll be planning for Christmas.

It took a lot of effort but I managed to get some work done during the week. Let’s see how I met my goals:


1) LAST WEEK’S GOALS:

*Start prepping for Once Upon A Book signing! I need to look at things to order, plane ticket, etc. Work in progress.

*Prepare HTML for Blessed Hearts Release Day. Done.

*Upload final copy of Blessed Hearts to CreateSpace and KDP. Done! The paperback will be available soon through CreateSpace.

*Work on draft for Delivering Sin. Goal is to finish it! Done.

2) THIS WEEK’S GOALS:

This month I’m working on a project for Camp NaNoWriMo. That means the entire month is devoted to completing the draft for Worth the Fight (Another Falls Creek Romance Novel, #1):

 

Worth the Fight

What do you think of the temporary cover?

I’ll also be promoting Blessed Hearts (comes out July 10) and Cursed Hearts this week.

3) A FAVORITE LINE OR PASSAGE FROM MY STORY THAT SUMS UP WHAT I WROTE/REVISED:

I started Worth the Fight on Saturday. How about an unedited sneak peek?

This female is gonna be the death of me. I’m not used to vulnerability. Sheila was as strong as a fucking piece of granite. Edwina comes off tough but she’s soft, too damned soft, deep down. My beast wants to protect her, hurting anyone threatening her. I swear if I ever cross paths with Cash I’m gonna beat the ever loving shit out of him. He broke a vampire. How the hell does that happen?

I’m enjoying learning about Hank, a being with complicated layers. He’s the first shifter I’ve written about. It’s a fun project. I’m also enjoying digging deeper into Edwina. If you’ve read Cursed Hearts, you may have formed your opinion about the vampire hybrid. Hold off judgment until after you’ve read Blessed Hearts. There’s so much more to this female. I’ve only touched the surface.

4) THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE I FACED LAST WEEK:

Getting back into the flow. Life’s different after being around a ton of other creatives for a few days. It’s like massive withdrawal going back to working by myself. I struggled through it, though. Instead of closing my office door and putting on headsets, I left the door open and turned up the music. I needed interaction even if it was just music and my family sticking their heads in the door.

5) SOMETHING I LOVE ABOUT MY WIP:

I love being able to continue writing in the world of Falls Creek. I especially enjoy writing my first shifter story.


How I’m feeding my soul this week…

I’m finishing up Victoria Schwab’s Our Dark Duet and will be starting Elise Kova’s The Alchemists of Loom.

That’s all for now.
