I love to procrastinate and I think I’m pretty good at it, but something went wrong today.
August 1 is a Monday, the first of the month and the first day of the work week, a perfect pairing to start a new habit. But on Saturday I sent Exotic Husbandry, the fourth Dylan Cold book, to my editor which means that today, a Monday, I’m kind of ready to start something new.
So here it is, for readers waiting for the next story and aspiring writers who wonder about others writing process, this is a summary of my plans for the week ahead.
- Word count – 7500 words for the week, on Deceptive Practices Dylan Cold book 5. This is low, but after a few weeks of heavy revisions on Exotic Husbandry, my writing practice is a little off so I need to start building it back up.
- Format and upload The Seamus Chronicles to Kobo, iTunes, and Google. These books are no longer exclusive to Amazon and I need to make sure they are available and looking good on other platforms.
- Document my process for tracking income. With Amazon being my single source of book sales, tracking was pretty straight forward, though getting more involved with every new book. Now that I am selling on other platforms I need to make sure I understand what’s working.
- 2,000 words of flash fiction. There is an indie anthology in the works over on Kboards and I am submitting 2 stories of 1,000 words. The first one is written and getting line edited, the second one is percolating in my brain pan.
