Blast, it’s Sunday once again. Here are the numbers:
How to Sex Your Snake, June Nash 1:
Genre – Mystery
New this week – 1078 words
Total Count – 14,589 words
Release date: Late Spring 2015 – still on track
This is an editing week, so I’m not too concerned with word count. The book is about halfway done.
Goals from Last Week:
Finish the edit from ch 5 – I’m close. Oh so close. Ch 5 is a doozy currently at 5600 words. My editor might break this into smaller chs. We’ll see.
Put 6 into first draft shape. This poor baby is still in tatters. I didn’t even open the file.
Updates to my published script, Finley Wade:
Genre – Non fiction and Script
New this Week – 302 words
Total Count 24,154 words
Re-Release: March 31, 2015 – probably will be delayed
Again, I’m working edits. It looks like she’ll be delayed because I still haven’t mentioned this project to my editor. Woops. Scheduling could cause a delay. The cover for Finley wasn’t a goal, but I did talk to my artist. She did the first mockup and I realized my idea was just too busy. Going to re-think what I want and get back to her.
Goals from last week:
I worked on several of the essays in section one but I’m not happy with any of them. I’m coming across as too much of a stick in the mud and that’s not my intention. There’s lots of good stuff here, I’ve done seminars on a lot of it, so I know the audience responds. I need to look up my lecture notes and try to work some of that humor back in.
I did not watch a single Marvel movie. I’m in withdrawals.
Goals for next week:
How to Sex Your Snake – send chs 4-6 to my editor for a first look. Ch4 is the only one ready to go. I cannot take a single day off. ( I only wrote 3 days this past week)
Finley Wade – If I get done with my work on Snake, I’ll attack the first two essays.
Check out some drawing programs for the ipad so I can play around with an idea I have for the Finley cover.
Finish the non writing blog post I started three days ago. Gracious. I need an app that yells at me when I get distracted.
I think that’s all for now.
