And the next project is....
I have started the rewrite and edit of Tales from Grey Station 9. The first 10k went very well. The next portion has slowed me down. I see the problem. I can fix it as soon as I find the right key.
And talking to myself helped. I have someone who needs a little more time in the spotlight.
Edmond has a bad cold. He's sneezing and coughing like mad. We'll have to get him some meds next week, I suspect, unless he pulls himself out of this. I feel sorry for the poor little guy, but at least he's not so sick he turns away from kitty treats.
Russ has been in New York for the last few days. He'll be home late today. Yay! It's been a long week. There was so much I wanted to get done, but I ended up wasting most of the time. I'm annoyed about that part, but overall it was not too bad. Until Edmond started sneezing.
I am once again trying to figure out how to make marketing work for me. This is an on-going circle of try this, try that -- and wondering just how to make it all come together so that I do more than jab at people now and then. I see people do cover reveals and launch parties -- and I just can't seem to do those sorts of things. I am not a good marketing person at all. Live things -- not going to happen, I fear. The mere idea -- well, I don't need another heart attack. Online stuff is nearly as bad. I don't do well with the presentation part of things. Write, edit, publish -- yeah, nice things I do all by myself and just sort of wave at people in passing to let them know what I'm doing. Beyond that? It just is not happening.
So there is my huge weakness as an author. No way around it.
I guess I'll go write some more now while I wait for Russ to get home.
