August 25th…

I’m a day late on posting my weekly writing status because I’ve been playing way to much of the new Fire Emblem game on the Switch.

This week I didn’t hit my goals for my word count but I planned for this. Having a massage on Tuesday meant I didn’t feel like writing anything.

Heather’s and Sasha’s book is coming along. I have about four weeks left on reaching my 50k to 60k word goal. I’ve added 4,570 words to it this week and I’ve hit 34,000 words. So, I’ll be close to 40k by the end of this coming week.

Book two of Elly of Ellyville is coming along. The superhero and the archvillain have someone new to fight against. I didn’t reach my 2,500 words I wanted to write this week but still, I’m happy with 1,700. My current total for this story is at 6k words added.

I also worked on another project I want to write, which is another reason why I didn’t add much to the second superhero book. I’m not sure what my word count on these stories will be, but I’m thinking around 10k like my other short stories.

All right, back to work/writing tomorrow. I’ll have a new update next weekend.

August 17th…

Another weekend, another writing update.

I finished the last round of edits for Cleo’s and Petra’s second short story, so I plan on publishing it tomorrow (Sunday). I have to write the blurb/summary, which I think I’m going to do after I finish this update.

Heather’s and Sasha’s story is coming along. I added 5,100 words to it this week. So far, this story is at 29,000 words of the 50,000+ I’d like it to have.

Elly of Ellyville book two is also coming along. I skipped working on it on Friday because I was drained, but I didn’t mind because I was only 90 words off from my goal of adding 2,500 words. So far, I’ve hit 4,600 words done in this book.

The prequel book is still waiting for a slot with the editor, which won’t happen until September.

Okay. I believe this is everything for the week. I’ll return next week with another update.

August 11th…

Time for another writing status update.

I wrote 2,200 words for book two of Elly of Ellyville. I wanted to hit 2,500 but by Friday, I was done so I skipped adding my 500 words. Still, I’m happy with 2,200. Besides, this book doesn’t need to be finish right away because I have two other 50k to 60k books finished or half finished, plus a short story.

However, I didn’t neglect my five days of writing for my main book. So, I added 5,300 words to Heather’s and Sasha’s story. I’m on target to reach my goal of finishing this in September, I believe.

Cleo & Petra’s second short story is in the finishing touches of editing. We’re giving it round three to see if there’s any remaining fixes. I should have this returned to me tomorrow (Monday.)

The cover for Heather’s and Sasha’s story is being created, and I think I can see what it looks like soon.

All right, this is everything I wanted to share for this week.

 

Hello August…

It’s August third, and the weekend, which means I need to write a new post on where I am in my writing.

This week wasn’t a good week. I had a scare which I thought might be a kidney stone. I spent two trips in the hospital emergency rooms until a doctor answered what was happening. Turns out my massage on Tuesday caused muscle spasms. So, I’ve been dealing with the pain since Wednesday.

Cleo & Petra’s second short story has been put through one round of edits. The editor can’t look at this story again until the seventh of August. I also sent the editor the finished story for The Event, but it won’t be looked at until September.

Heather’s and Sasha’s book is moving along. I only did 4,300 words this week because of the health problems. Still, this story is at 19,000 words of the 50,000 to 60,000 I’d like it to have.

I plan on Monday to returning to doing my 1k and 500 word counts. I’m going to start book two of Elly of Ellyville as the new 500 words a day story.

The last bit of news I have is I’ve uploaded the revised covers or the new covers to Pinterest and Facebook. I did this on my web page a while ago.

All right, this is a long post, so I’m done. I’ll have more to say next week!
