Virus update. We’ve reached 5,786 known cases and 299 dead. This means since last week we’ve had 117 new cases and two new deaths. This includes the totals from today.
Book news. I’m 16,000 words into the 40k to 50k I’d prefer Isabella’s, Cassidy’s, and David’s werewolf story for Bastet’s Daughters and Kira’s litRPG story. I have twenty-nine pages left to work through this second round of self-editing of the second story in Bastet’s Daughters. I plan to send this to the editor next Sunday, which means I set a personal deadline of finishing it by mid-week. I’ve trimmed about six thousand words from it. I know when I wrote it, I didn’t know half of what I’ve learned since. I’ve tried to remember, but I don’t think I had access to Grammarly nor ProWritingAid. I’ve run the chapters through Pro, which helped fix errors I didn’t notice. I should receive Crimson Rose’s fourth short story by the end of the week. The first story for Dyalessia Games and Bastet’s Daughters was included in the order, so I’ll go through those and fix them. I’ve posted the cover for Crimson Rose’s fourth short story on my web page.
If you want a free short story set in Bastet’s Daughters where Felia meets Bastet, I offer it if you join my mailing list.
I uploaded my thirty-seventh writing video on my YouTube channel. As usual, I talk about the same things I do here but maybe more. I forgot to upload a gaming clip this week. I’m not sure if I’ll upload another this week. I’ll see what happens. There’s a lot going on.
Gaming news. I finished playing Kingdoms of Amalur. Back to doing Diablo 3 runs. I was eager to play Warcraft’s new expansion although it wasn’t planned until later this month, but it’s been delayed until later this year/next year. Sigh. Every game I wanted this year has been delayed. However, the level squish and other features are being released next week.
I haven’t worked on the dragon puzzle. Will see if I can fit it in this week once I finish my self editing.
Reading for the week. The cover images are posted on Pinterest.
