Midweek ROW80 check-in

The big news for this week is that my novelettes The Beltane Kiss and The Faerie Key are now available on Amazon. Besides that, I haven’t managed to get a whole lot of writing done.

I’m trying to get in the habit of going for an evening walk. We’re fortunate enough to live right next to a park full of nature trails, so I’m trying to get out as often as I can and go exploring. It’s good for the body and, I think, for the mind to, just to wander under the trees.

This week’s check-in:

Writing: My writing time this week, so far, has been dedicated to getting my novelettes The Beltane Kiss and The Faerie Key uploaded to Amazon. Now that they’re officially live, I’d like to switch to revising either Spellfire’s Kiss or A Prince in Patience Point. I’d like to have those two books revised by the end of the year. I also have two short stories, Spirits of Embers and Silver’s Stray, that I’d like to finish.

Reading: I’m currently rereading Peter and Wendy, mostly because I’ve been reading darker books and wanted something lighter—although there’s an edge to Peter and Wendy that I didn’t remember, and some comic moments. I especially liked this line:

“Mrs. Darling loved to have everything just so, and Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbors; so, of course, they had a nurse.”

I guess people were keeping up with the Joneses, even then!

  1. I’m reading – well, savoring VERY slowly, so it will last – Hamilton: The Revolution. It’s as brilliant as the musical, and Lin’s lyric notes – love! I can’t get enough of Hamilton, as evidenced by the fact that I started a new Pinterest board for the first time in I don’t know how long. =)

    Getting your novelettes out there is n small matter. Other things can fill in now, while you bask in the accomplishment! =)

      • It really is. I was always fascinated by Alexander Hamilton, but I only knew the surface – so much more than that to learn. And Lin-Manuel Miranda is a musical genius, who found brilliant collaborators and created something that kind of defies adequate description. I’ll eventually be getting the book myself, even though I’ve really stepped down my acquisition of physical books. It’ll be on the par with my Globe Illustrated Shakespeare.
