Writing Challenge Day 12

It’s been a couple of crazy days, as evidenced by the lack of my posting.

I had to force myself to take a full day off.  I can’t speak for anyone else, but for me I write just about everyday.  However, the family asked me to do a few other things, so I tried to go 24 hours without writing.  I made it, but I will say I was jonesing this morning when I got to my desk!

I did manage to read a few books over the weekend.  I finished Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s Discoverability book and Dean Wesley Smith’s Think Like a Publisher.  If you haven’t read either and are planning to do anything remotely close to self-publishing, then I’m going to highly recommend these books.

I’ve been planning for a while how I was going to set my publishing company up. In fact, I started the process nearly three years ago.  And somewhere along the lines, I forgot a few of the important concepts.  Reading those books reminded me of of few major actions that I had put off, saying that I would get to them when I was ready.  Well, I realized that I’d met the goals I’d set and I was now ready.  I’ll do a post at some point that will explain what I’m doing with the publishing company.

Today, I spent the majority of the day working on finishing up the electronic versions of Misappropriated Means and getting it out for reviewers to have a go at it.  I’m hoping to have several reviews on release day.  It’s the first time that I’ve tried this approach, so it will be interesting to see if I get any market traction on it at all.

I spent about two hours after dinner working on the manuscript for Dealer’s Choice.  The story is fluctuating on me.  At one point, it’s really taking off and then it almost seems to stall on me.  It’s been a bit frustrating, but, hey, that’s the writing life.  All I can do is to keep putting the words down.  All in all, it was a fairly productive day.
