Step Away for Your Writing

I can do that.

P.S. I’m out of town and probably won’t be online.  So, I’ll do the Day 31 challenge when I get back, maybe Monday or Tuesday.

Count Down Day 3: Project “DDD” Publication

Well, I’m not getting started until 9pm tonight.  It was a long work day, and a slightly crazy after work day as well.

Going to attempt to finish the read-aloud in the midst of packing for my weekend trip.  We’ll see how this goes!

9:00–read-aloud chapters 20-24.

10:45–calling it quits.  Ugh.  I wanted to keep going, to make it all the way through, but my voice is shot and my eyes are troubled at the thought of staying open.

I’ll try to squeeze some more in, in the morning before work.  We’ll see how that goes.

Join Goodreads

And…already done.  A friend asked me at some point last year why she’d never seen me on Goodreads, so I joined.  I built my page there, and added my novel as well as the other books and scripts under my legal name.  I have not yet explored this social platform.  The guy on the Writer’s Digest blog didn’t have any tips, but he linked to another writer’s tips, so I’ll read that and see if there’s anything I can do this morning before work.  Otherwise, I may add some tasks to my calendar for November.  We’ll see!

Make a Task List

Ooh, continuing on in the challenge past the month!  I get to create a list for the month of November, with tasks for platform building to continue.  Then, in there, include a day to create the plan for December…  I’m creating this in calendar form and putting here.

Count Down Day 15: Project “DDD” Publication

Today is the day that the intensity hits as I finish up editing/revising Drop Dead Daisy at last! I’ve got 15 days left in which to do it.  Here we go!

Today’s assignment: write and insert remaining missing scenes, including necessary transitions

Success? Yes!  I created the remaining “notable” missing scenes (ie, those that can clearly be identified.  Other scenes are still missing, but can only be added once the next revision stage begins).

And, since I finished that so early today, I’ll take a short break and forge ahead into the next assignment and see how far I can get before the gallery tonight.

And done with that.  Realized that I needed to do some re-organizing as the next actual step, so I did that.  And done!  Off to the gallery now!

Include an Image in Blog Post

Well, I do this as a normal part of my blogging habits.  But, I don’t optimize the photos as well as I should.  So, I’ll look at his tips and go from there.  Hmm…So, here’s today’s photo.
