Virus update. We’ve reached 2,648 known cases and 194 dead, according to updates posted today. . This means since last week we’ve had 466 new cases and 22 new deaths.
Book news. I’m almost done with the third short story for Crimson Rose. I’ve written 5,740 words in Crimson Rose this week. I have about 4k to 5k left to work with to reach my goal of the 20,000 to 21,000. I’ve been working on the third story for Ellyville. I reached 4,942 words into the 40,000 to 50,000 I’d like it to have. As I mentioned earlier, I plan to slot it into my 1k words schedule once I finish Crimson Rose. I wanted to add 2,500 words to Ellyville, but I took a break in the middle of the week. Still, I wrote 2,300 words for it. So, I’m not upset with skipping one day of writing.
Cover artist news. I have the cover for Cleo’s and Petra’s next story. However, much like this year, she gave me bad news. We talked, and I should have the remaining covers for my other stories before she has to handle her health issues. I worry about her, hearing about what she’s dealing with. I mentioned this more in my YouTube video without revealing specifics.
I uploaded my eighteenth video on my Youtube channel. As usual, I talk about the same things I do here but maybe more.
Gaming news. I spent a lot of time playing Warcraft this week. I’m still leveling an Alliance character doing the quests. I’ve moved to Burning Crusade and cleared three zones. Woot. Grins. This week I needed a break from being online, so I’ve been playing a lot of Sims 4 on my Xbox. I’ve been working on my new dragon puzzle. Pictures have been posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.
