Virus update. We’ve reached 3,744 known cases and 273 dead, according to updates posted yesterday. This means since last week we’ve had 227 new cases and 4 new deaths. I don’t have the updates for Sunday, so I’ll include them next week.
Book news. I have a week left of writing to finish the third book for Ellyville. I’ve written 5,440 words to it this week. I overwrote my count by 440. Also, I’ve started a 5k free short story for my mailing list. It’s set in my Bastet’s Daughters setting. I plan to expand this setting more over the coming years, having finished most of the Dyalessia Games/Friends books. I plan to write three more, but after this I’m moving on from them. Later tonight I’m republishing Samantha’s short story for Bastet’s Daughters and Ellyville’s second book. Both have been sent to a paid editor and improved.
Tenses and redundant passages. Those are my bane. Every story needs tenses fixed. I’m trying to learn how to fix them during my self edits, but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. Sigh. Still, if this is what the editor needs to fix, it’s not a huge undertaking. Grins. The redundant passages are something I’ve improved on, according to my current editor. She’s seen my older stories and my new ones and commented on how different they are.
I uploaded my twenty-fourth video on my Youtube channel. As usual, I talk about the same things I do here but maybe more. I’ve also been uploading gaming clips. Most are ten to twenty minutes long.
Gaming news. Diablo 3 until Sword Art comes out this week. The dragon puzzle is closer to being completed. I need to take new pictures and post them on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
