This week was just blah. I had major focus issues this week, but I did manage to get some things done, but not one monumental, big thing. I wanted to write a whole bunch on my Christmas short story and barely managed 1K words. I did manage to get some proofing edits done on Private Charter, and I did manage to get ARCs out. I also did some research for my Christmas story, and I did get some amazing feedback on my Roman-era story that I very briefly started to unpack.
But I wanted to get more written on my WIP and I know that productivity doesn’t equate to word counts only. But it’s just disappointing when I don’t meet my own goals.
I also had two sick kids at home with me this week, which didn’t help. Fingers crossed I have some decent alone time this week and can punch through some words. It also doesn’t help that I’m trying to write a Christmas story when I’m not a fan of Christmas, at all. But that’s beside the point, I tell myself. I’m a professional writer. I need to sit my ass at my desk and do my damn job. LOL Which is what I fully intend on doing this week.
As I mentioned, ARCs for Private Charter went out and the first few reviews have been AMAZING!! It seems people need a little sunshine, sailing and sex in their lives right now! 😉
I’ll share an excerpt or two in a few days and maybe some pics that inspired my characters. Be warned, there is a lot of skin, white Speedos and tequila 🙂 Like this one, though Stuart doesn’t have a beard, he sure does like to show off his best assets 😉
(I don’t own this pic. I found it on the internet. If you are the rightful owner and would like it removed, I’ll happily remove it. kudos, btw, for such a great photo.)
Don’t forget, I have some books out of Kindle Unlimited!
It’s also the 13th, which means it’s exactly two months before I leave for America. GRL is coming up so fast. It was forever away, and we’re now down to weeks! I’ve been working on some FABULOUS swag which I can’t wait to share pics of very soon! I’m so excited to be going back, and I can’t wait to catch up with old friends and meet new ones!
It will be my last trip to America for the next few years at least – GRL is in October and that time of year is when Aussie kids sit their senior exams. Our exams here run every day for 2-3 weeks at the end of October, and my kids will be sitting them over the next three years (after this year) so I need to be here for that.
I’m going to try and get to EuroCon next June but that is a huge if right now. I can’t commit to a definite yes – I need some planets to align first (and possibly lotto if anyone knows how LOL).
Okay, that’s it for this week! Keep your fingers crossed I can get some writing done this next week! Until then!
