Weekly Writing Check-In: And We're Off

Well not really. I'm not going anywhere. Nobody's coming here. It's not even a really good figurative title. The only thing going "off" is my alarm clock every day at noon. But! As of yesterday evening I finished the pre-beta edits for my upcoming novella and have sent it off to beta. Wow. I must have no life. In less than a month I wrote a 45k novella, rewrote it, edited it, rewrote it again, and then finally edited it one last time and then sent it off to beta. This is my life. Every day.

Needless to say, my evenings are so consumed with writing/editing that I had NO IDEA what to do with myself later on. I just sat here, after doing my cleaning and blogging, going, "Now what?!" I had idle hands. You'd think I'd take a break, right? Give my brain the night off? Nah. I WENT STRAIGHT INTO THE FIRST DRAFT OF THE NEXT ONE~ Wrote two pages before finally going to sleep. Writing 3k every day is so infused in me now that I don't know how to function otherwise. I mean I got nothing else to do with my time...

So while I wait to hear back from betas on this novella, I've started the next. I plan on releasing both by the end of the year (more details to come, but basically, a couple months apart) so might as well get as much done now as I can before my brain becomes consumed with more editing, Camp, formatting, and marketing! Oh goodness. The life I've signed up for.

That was my week! Huh, for once I actually had something to talk about. As for the cleaning? Taking a break from it tonight. I have a million CDs to put away and I just don't want to. Ha!


  1. I'm kind of jealous! Writing 3K a day is amazing! I'm hoping I can do that at Nano, but who knows, right? Guess I'll find out in a few days.

    Congrats on getting all that done. And cleaning is best done in short spurts. :) I hate cleaning, but it's a necessary evil.

    1. Oh, in my family, cleaning is done ALL AT ONCE in ONE DAY and it's a great travesty of shame if it's not done in that day! So it's hard to shake, ha! But when you have 300 CDs needing to go into 300 CD cases, it can only be done in pieces. Even while watching a great movie, it will cause the brain to break after a while!

  2. You are a MACHINE! *Grins* Nice work!

  3. That's awesome you've been able to get so much accomplished!
