#ROW80 - A Day Late

I had the best of intentions to write this yesterday night. Just ran out of time. So, now I'm sneaking this in during a meeting. Fortunately, the posting area doesn't look all the different from an email. At least to the untrained eye. In any case, I'll want to be brief.
  • Lesson Learned - The best way to counter negative media is with overwhelmingly positive personal witness. Individual experience trumps mass market swill any day of the week. At least in my mind. The lesson for authors here is really a reinforcement of the "write what you know" mantra. Being a real, relate-able human being is often your best marketing tool.
  • WIP Progress - DONE! Editing has been completed. We're hoping to tie up the formatting, etc, this week and have Fates' Motif for sale by Saturday. Happy day!
  • Blogging - Now that I'm out of editing mode, my writing muse has woken back up. I only hit 2/3 on the gaming blog, but I was 4/3 here. I think I'll work on that personal post over the weekend as well.
  • Not A Goal - Since my editing is complete, I can read again! I'll celebrate with Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. Why that book? Because I've decided to take part in a Group Read. It just happens the timing lines up for me (plus I love Sanderson), and I've never really done the group read thing. Seemed like a fun idea. So you'll get to see my thoughts on the book here on Tuesdays.
Day Job isn't getting less busy. Spring evenings are great for doing anything except staying inside the house and trying to write. But I'm still truckin'. Still consuming and creating words and worlds. And, as proof, here's the word count:
  • Since last check in: 2,696
  • New Fiction: 0 - In Between Projects
  • Round 2 Total: 16,644

Sounds like you are rocking Round 2. Great R2 wordcount. Hope the rest of the round goes well!

Thanks. Past rounds I've racked up a lot more words, but it's a lot better an the big 0.
