Fly-By: two novels, finish my blueprint, begin my beguine

nowhere man typing

Yeah, I know, I used that subject line about this time last year.  I have a good reason, though — I’ve been quite busy this past weekend, attempting to get In My Blue World revised, create the freebie postcards for it (and get them ordered), and also go see Yellow Submarine at the Castro Theater!  I couldn’t pass up seeing one of my favorite movies from my childhood at a local theater I’ve been wanting to go to for ages.

On the plus side, I’m still relatively on schedule with this novel, which makes me happy.

Oh — and I may be making some pre-writing notes for a future Mendaihu Universe story that I will most likely start writing later in the year.  As if I don’t have enough to do right now…

See you on Friday!  🙂

Fly-By: Taking the Week Off

Hey all!  I’m not exactly up-to-my-neck busy and (I hope) the Day Job won’t be too stressful the next few days, but I thought I’d take a week off from blogging just to get my ducks in a row, Christmas presents ordered, novels written, errands done, book covers created, etc.   I’m also in the midst of switching priority levels on my writing projects and want a clear head for that.  You know how it is.

See you next Monday!

Fly-By: One Last Con Day

I’d completely forgotten today is Monday.  This is what happens when you have a four-day weekend full of fun plans:  you completely forget what day it is.  Which means I’d completely forgotten to write up an entry for today.

D’OH.

Oh well, that’s okay.  I have a few things in mind that I’d like to post about, though we’ll be heading out to San Mateo pretty soon for the last day of BayCon (in which I’m featuring on two panels).  I’ll either post something later today or I’ll have something in the next day or so.

Hope your weekend’s been relaxing! 🙂

Fly-By: All’s Well So Far

Hi all!

Just a fly-by today…nothing much to report other than that all is well.  I’ve been hitting an average of 500 to 1000 words a day for Meet the Lidwells (woohoo!), and it’s been running quite smoothly.  Funny how that happens when you outline beforehand, no?

Also: started the daily 750 Words back up again.  A lot of it is just riffing right now, but that’s just fine.  It’s practice words, and that’s what counts.

Other than that, going to have a much-needed relaxing weekend!

Fly-by: finishing off a project

Heya! I’m taking a few weeks off from blogging so I can get The Balance of Light completed and ready for self-publication!

I’m extremely excited to be within spitting distance of one of my biggest goals, to see my trilogy out in the wild like this.  It took a hell of a lot of learning, hard work, and stubborn dedication to get to this point, and it was totally worth every minute.

I’ll post once more when the book is ready to drop, and then we’ll be back to our regular blogging schedule.

See you soon!

 

Fly-by: On break for a few weeks

spirited-away

Hey gang!  Sorry to let you down, but both blogs are going on a brief vacation for a few weeks.  This next week is probably going to busy, between Day Job stuff and preparing for an actual trip (we’re heading back to New England to visit friends and family).

We’ll be back fresh and ready to go in November!  Until then, don’t eat too much Halloween candy!

See you soon!
