I’ve been slacking lately. November has always been the worst month to get anything done. Erika and I both have birthdays this month, Turkey day is around the corner, and my sister-in-law always visits the first week of November.
Of course November 2015 is even more crazy with the Kindle Scout campaign, the audiobook stuff, the novelette submission to TOR, and three different collaborative projects! I did manage to get 1,200 words written this morning.
Today was a good day for writing. I managed about 1700 words or so before work, and added another 450 after work for a daily count of 2140.
I’ve been marginal in designing my own covers. I’m good enough to do some basic stuff, but smart enough to know when I can’t hack it. I’ve been helping Linn Fergus with some cover concepts and reference covers.

I’m sure that after this first draft is done, I’ll need to tear this thing apart, and decide what to do with it.
When I started out writing for (Not) NaNoWriMo, I intended on finally writing the sequel to Body Rentals. Since I’m a pantser, the story is unfolding in a way that just might not be Body Rentals-esque. Today’s 2,000 words gets me over the 10k mark, and a nifty badge over at nanowrimo.org.
Today I had to push through to 2040 words. I’m not really sure where this story is going…
2130 words today, took way too long (4 hours.) The apathy is already setting in…
