Word and more words

Hello everyone, I trust you are all doing well!

This week has been a strange one so far, every morning I wake up thinking I’m a day ahead, this morning I thought it was Thursday, tomorrow morning I will extremely disappointed when I realise its not Friday!! Ha!

I am so proud of myself, I have been writing non-stop for a whole week now and getting that Evernote app for my ipad needs to get some credit for it, it really has made a huge difference to be using my commute to write as it has been immensely productive!

Needless to say, my novel is going ok, the beginning is being really full of surprises, even for me. This is because the story is completely different than what I make it out to be in the beginning, I am excited to put the twist in soon!! πŸ™‚

How are your projects coming along? I have to say, it is great to be back here with all of you!! πŸ™‚

  1. It is good you are writing every day, it is the only way to become a master at the craft. Darn hard work. I have finished my manuscript for my picture book. Playing around with illustrations and will start writing my next picture book soon. Keep writing and enjoying what you do.

    • I know, everyday I face a different challenge but it is so much fun to learn how to overcome them! :).

      I am so glad to hear you have finished your manuscript, when do you think you’ll have it published? πŸ™‚

      • If I listen to the experts it will take a long time, I have sent it to a publisher and I don’t expect to hear back. I move on to next story and keep my eye out for openings. Some big publisher’s have submission days for unsolicited manuscripts. I don’t have the energy to self publish so I guess I keep going until I hit gold.

      • Well, like I said a few days ago, you have to keep trying, trying is what keeps everything fun and interesting and I am 100% sure you will hit gold soon!! And now that I know publishers have submission days I shall try to hit gold too!! Ha! :). I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, it has been great to be so consistent with my work and im hoping to keep it going for long now! Why did you lose a whole month? Im sure you will get back onto it fine πŸ™‚

      • Oh right, it is always difficult to do anything when the kids are off school, luckily they’re back to school now so you’ll be able to catch up. Have you thought about using Hootsuite to schedule messages so you can free up some of your time of promotion? It helps me a great deal!! πŸ™‚ and plus it is free!! πŸ™‚

      • I’ve been using it when things get really chaotic. The tweets and facebook postings are actually the least time-consuming, so I haven’t worried too much. It was finding guest blogs and interviews that suffered a bit.

      • Well, I am thinking of scheduling some blog posts soon for when I go on holidays and things because then it will be much easier to reply to comments than to actually compose the article itself as I found last time. Last time I went away I had no internet or phone signal so couldnt even tweet and it was horrible!! I also had the guest blogging thing going but I found it is much more useful when I actually have the time to honour it, I did it once and it was great but its unpredictable how many times you can actually do it.

      • I schedule my blog posts in advance now. There’s no way to schedule the FB posts on promo sites. I guess the fortunate thing is that I can’t afford to go away, so I don’t have to worry about it now. By the time I can afford a vacation, I’ll have enough books out that I can take a small break from promotional work.

  2. Oh, glad you found an app for your train writing! My wip has been going well (although slowly). I’ve made myself get up an extra 1/2 hour early in order to work on my writing because I’m so tired by the time I get home and don’t usually get around to it by then. Ah well. We do what we must.

    • Tell me about it, I usually write on the way home too but find it to be a lot harder than in the morning. Unfortunately for me I cant wake up any earlier or I wont get any sleep! haha!
