The Clock is Ticking

Bone_Tree_AC_4x6Since the beginning of January, I’ve felt like my life’s clock has done nothing but inexorably chip more and more time away between me and my looming publishing deadlines—which, of course, it has. Somehow though, this passage of time seems like more of a chaotic mess than an orderly procession.

Perhaps the feeling exists because I still have a little bit of an organizational hangover from the Christmas and New Year’s holiday schedules. Perhaps it’s there because I have several different people all begging me to become more active in whatever volunteer activity they think is important. Perhaps it’s there because I put way too much pressure on myself to make good on my promises, in general. (I’m very old-fashioned in that I view reneging on my promises as tantamount to lying and lying as synonymous with the ultimate dishonor toward myself and others. Therefore I don’t make promises lightly.) Whatever the reason or reasons, I feel squeezed in several different directions right now.

I finished 2014 strong, but I also know that I have lots to do before all of the writing and other creative projects that I’ve been doing for so long finally come to completion. I think you’ll see what I mean when you look at my updates.

Since the last full update in October, I have:

Writing and Publishing:

  • Participated in November’s NaNoWriMo. If you haven’t seen my blog post and my progress meter for the event, please read them.
  • Finished writing Thorn and Thistle novella rough draft. The manuscript is almost 40,000 words long, so I may end up releasing it as a short book later this year. We’ll see. Regardless, beta reading won’t happen until March or April.
  • Continued writing The Dryad’s Sacrifice novella rough draft. I have about 23,000 words written on this story with more to come. I want the rough draft finished by February 1 with beta reading to follow in mid-February. The cover art is, oddly enough, finished.
  • Finished writing “Paper Castles” short story. This story has already been through the ringer of multiple drafts, beta reads, edits, and formatting. February 27, 2015 is its official publication date. The cover art is the only thing holding up pre-orders right now.
  • Finished writing “Hero’s Moment” short story. This story has also seen multiple drafts, beta reads, and edits. It’s going through proof-reading and formatting right now and cover art creation is scheduled to happen next month. May 22, 2015 is its official publication date.
  • Finished writing “When the Medium Shatters” short story. This was originally a piece of flash fiction written for a writer’s workshop challenge. It has undergone multiple drafts, beta reads, edits, and formatting, but has no cover art yet. Official publication date is set for August 21, 2015.
  • Published “The Twirling Ballerina” short story in November. I have had really good response to this sad-but-sweet short story and I look forward to more people enjoying it.

Photography and Graphic Design:

  • Photographed a wedding and several properties for clients.
  • Created a LAUNDRY ROOM sign out of my “letter photography” for a loved one.
  • Uploaded several art photographs (“Union Pacific Yellow, No. 1”, “Scrub Brush Sunrise”, “Ash Bloom”, “Three Does”, and “Bone Tree”) to my photography website.
  • Redesigned the book cover art for The Dryad’s Sacrifice. The font looks so much better now!
  • Created cover art for “The Twirling Ballerina” short story. It’s probably not my best cover ever, but it fits the story very well.
  • Began creating cover art for “Paper Castles” short story. My first attempt at this cover was terrible, so I reworked it. It looks much better now, but I still need to tweak it a bit before it’s ready for its public debut.
  • Began creating cover art for Thorn and Thistle novella. This cover is still in its rough stages, but perfecting it will have to wait until some of my other projects are done.

Reading:

  • Continued reading the Bible. I finished Romans, II Corinthians, I Thessalonians, II Thessalonians, Galatians, and Ephesians.
  • Continued reading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King. Sadly I haven’t read much further on the book, but what I have read has been very informative.
  • Read Four: A Divergent Collection by Veronica Roth. Since I love the Divergent series, this was a fun read which added a little more depth to the world. Even so, I wouldn’t call it essential reading for Divergent fans.
  • Read The Hum and the Shiver by Alex Bledsoe. This book, with its beautiful descriptions and vivid characters, was a wonderful journey into a place where songs are magic and the tick of time is almost lost between the notes. I enjoyed the read, although I will say that the juxtaposition of the flowing songs and prose against the coarse jokes and speech of the characters set my teeth on edge at times.
  • Read Wild Card novella by Lisa Shearin. Shearin’s snarky humor and dry wit is downright charming. I’ve enjoyed reading her Rain Benares series for many years and this book was a short, fun addition to the collection.
  • Began reading The Republic of Pirates by Colin Woodard. This book is a spectacular read for anyone interested in the real history behind the lore of Caribbean pirates. Often the truth about these buccaneers is even more fantastic than the legends! I plan to put much of this fascinating information to good use in my Tempest Maiden series.
  • Began reading A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis. This has been a difficult book to read because it hits close to home in so many ways. No, I haven’t lost a spouse (thank God), but I have dealt with the living death of my best friend as well as the deaths of close family members and friends. Grief is a weird beast to tame. Every time you think you have it cornered and crushed, it slithers past your guard and strikes you anew.
  • Began reading My Lucky Life in and out of Show Business by Dick Van Dyke. This is an interesting book from one of the favorite actors of my childhood.
  • Began reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I’ve known about this book for a few years and finally purchased it. We’ll see how it reads.

Gaming:

  • Played Jumbline.
  • Played Dragon Gem.
  • Played Minecraft. Lately my husband and I have been building a fortress on our own private Minecraft Realms server. We also found a massive cave system with loads of goodies to mine and baddies to fight. Too fun!
  • Played Munin.
  • Played Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights.

Other:

  • Helped my church put together and run our Harvest Festival for the community on Halloween.
  • Attended several volunteer organization functions including a couple of Christmas parties.
  • Created a few Christmas tree ornaments for family and friends. I did not make all of the ornaments that I wanted to because I ran out of time.
  • Created and mailed Christmas cards to people. It’s always hard work, but it’s also a lot of fun.
  • Made lots of updates to my three websites. I’ve upload new photos, creating new book webpages, updating existing content, updated widgets, and posted new blog articles all in hope that my readers get the most out of my websites.
  • Saw The Penguins of Madascar, Interstellar, Mockingjay, Part 1, and The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. Since we live in a rural area of Texas, making it to the movie theater requires a 180 mile round trip. Consequently it’s a big deal for me to see this many movies in a two-month timespan. Hurray for my husband and me!

My goals for the next few weeks are to:

  • Finish writing The Dryad’s Sacrifice rough draft by February 1, 2015 and finish beta-reading and pre-editing tweaks by March 1, 2015.
  • Finish pre-editing tweaks on Skinshifter by March 1, 2015.
  • Finish the cover art for “Paper Castles” and publish the short story on February 27, 2015.
  • Create “Hero’s Moment” cover art by March 1, 2015.
  • Finish reading the book of Revelation in the Bible.
  • Continued reading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King.
  • Finish reading The Republic of Pirates by Colin Woodard.
  • Finish reading A Grief Observed by C.S. Lewis.
  • Finish reading My Lucky Life in and out of Show Business by Dick Van Dyke.
  • Finish reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better!

Showers, Flowers, and Keyboard Head-Banging

Along_Tracks_AC4x6As I mentioned in last week’s newsletter, fall is here and I am excited. I love this time of year for many reasons, but one of the major ones today is that autumn usually brings rain to West Texas. After a sizzling summer, the cooler temperatures and more frequent showers create a wonderful recipe for last-minute eruptions of wildflowers to color the landscape before the bleak, brown vision of winter descends upon the desert.

Consequently I was shooting Black-Eyed Susans and doing happy dances most of last weekend. It was heavenly. I don’t know what it is about wildflowers that make me so deliriously joyful, but they do. Of course, the last few weeks haven’t all been sunshine and flowers. I’ve also been hard at work on other projects as well. Some of these projects have gone very well and some have caused me to bash my head against my keyboard more than once.

Since the last full update in August, I have:

Writing:

Wrote, edited, and published “The Cleaning” short story. This fiction piece is a much darker tale dealing with the problems of corruption and censorship.

Finished writing “The Twirling Ballerina” short story. This story is short and bittersweet at about 2800 words. It’s making the beta reading rounds right now it seems to be jerking tearful smiles from just about everyone who reads it. We’ll see what my editor says, but I’m really hoping to release this story around December 1 as an early Christmas present for everyone.

Wrote “A Hero’s Moment” short story. This is a 6500-word tale that won’t hit eBook screens until 2015, but I think the wait will be well worth it. This was a fun writing-romp and I think it will just enjoyable of a read…once I get it polished, of course.

Continued writing Thorn and Thistle. The story has been inexplicably frustrating for the past month with one bout of writer’s block after another. Since the first 25,000 words came so easily, I wondered when the other shoe would drop and it finally did at 28,000 words and 10 chapters into the tale. Since then, it seems that I have trekked uphill in the freezing snow to capture every single new word. I finally had to reread the story from the beginning so that I could double-check plot inconsistencies and momentum problems before moving forward. That has helped matters, but it is still a long slog. Time for more research!
 
Photography and Graphic Design:

Photographed pieces of real estate, industrial equipment, and a historical building for clients.

Photographed wildlife including birds and dragonflies near Weslaco, Texas. Several of my blog photos during September were taken during this shoot.

Photographed wildflowers near Monahans, Texas. Today’s photo is from that shoot.

Posted new art photography on my website: “Along the Tracks”, “Gossamer Beauty”, “Orb Cloud”, “Three Beauties and a Beast”, and “Water Bug Ripples”.
 
Reading:

Continued reading the Bible. I finished Acts, Philippians, Colossians. I began reading Romans and 1 Corinthians.

Finished reading The Naked Truth About Self-Publishing. This book is a great source of knowledge for indie authors. I took notes while I read it, which saved me the hassle of trying to remember all of the tips and tricks tucked into this little volume. Last month, I began implementing some of the authors’ advice with good results.

Read Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas by Edward Klein. A fascinating and sometimes unsettling look at these key players in the Democratic Party. The book read like a fast-paced soap opera. If the real-life people are anything close to Klein’s portrayal of them, I pity them.

Read “The Wild Swans” by Hans Christian Anderson. While I enjoyed the premise of the story, I forgot how dry some of the author’s tales can be.

Read The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. I finally read this classic story! It’s a truly beautiful and thought-provoking tale.

Read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This was an interesting, but sometimes frustrating story to read. I found it a bit of a mixed bag with characters that I alternately enjoyed and disliked. It was real and, at times, very gritty in its portrayal of life and death. All in all, it pulled no punches as a cancer book.

Read Broken Aro by Jen Wylie. This book had great potential, but ultimately flopped on delivery. I liked the characters, but the plot was horribly cliché. The writing needed serious editing, especially in regard to punctuation. All in all, this story lacked substance and refinement from beginning to end.

Read Divergent by Veronica Roth. Wow, this story was incredible. I loved the characters. The plot was fast-paced and engaging. The vivid writing grabbed and drug me kicking and screaming straight into Tris’s world. I loved the Dauntless culture and yet I plainly saw its flaws.

Read Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I was so sad to leave the Dauntless culture behind, but the larger cultural world of the factions and their political affiliations was very thought-provoking. As usual the tension of the plot me and the vibrant characters kept me reading well into the night.

Read Allegiant by Veronica Roth. This book was a much slower read for me than its predecessors. The plot was neither as strong or as well-paced as Divergent or Insurgent for me. The writing, while good, lacked the same strong flow due to the split narrative. All this being said, though, I loved the book’s conclusion. I know other people who were less than enthusiastic about it, but I found the ending quite powerful and moving.

Continued reading of Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. I’m stalled on this book, not because it isn’t good, but because my pirate research for Thorn and Thistle has taken me elsewhere. I hope to finish Crichton’s book soon.

Began Real Pirates by Barry Clifford and Kenneth J. Kinkor. I had picked this book up a few years ago at The Denver Museum of Nature & Science and now I’m finally getting the chance to put its information to good writing use. Yeah!

Began reading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King. While I am not a huge fan of King’s books, he is a master storyteller. His book, so far, is interesting from a biographical point-of-view. It’s laced with stories from the author’s life as well as his opinions on what makes quality writing. Like me, King adores Strunk and White’s book The Elements of Style and makes regular references to it in his own book. We’ll see how it turns out.

Read a few Wall Street Journal articles.

Read a few Writer’s Digest articles.
 
Gaming:

Played Jumbline.

Played Mahjong.

Played Minecraft.

Played Munin.

Played Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights.
 
Other:

Finished writing my 2015 business plan including a complete publishing schedule for 2015.

Created an “Authors Goals” poster detailing my business dreams and aspirations to hang on my office wall.

Attended the Laredo Comic Con. This was a tiny convention with a few panels and booths available. It was fun, but not a con that I’ll likely attend again anytime soon.

Began a workout regimen alternating between Karate and bike-riding. I studied Karate during and after college, so I’m excited to train in it again. Hopefully it and the biking will give me more energy and keep me healthier.

Taught Children’s Church while my husband was gone on business trips.

Purchased a new phone since mine was no longer holding a proper charge.

Purchased a new, more comfortable office chair.

Replaced the kitchen faucet.

Repaired both my husband’s and my cars.
 
My goals for the next six weeks are to:

Create e-book cover art for “The Twirling Ballerina” short story.

Publish “The Twirling Ballerina” short story.

Finish cleaning up “A Hero’s Moment” short story and send it to my beta readers.

Write “Space Junkers” short story rough draft.

Finish the rough draft of Thorn and Thistle.

Participate in National Novel Writing Month. I know that writing 50,000 words in a month on a story unrelated to any of the work mentioned above probably won’t happen, but I enjoy trying to kiss the wind.

Continue my workout program.

Prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better!

The Flights of August

Green_Sea_Flock-4x6ACAugust is going well so far. My intrepid forays into flights of fancy have resulted in my working on three very different writing projects at once. I’m having a thoroughly fun time putting each of the stories together as well as doing several other good things.

Since the last full update in July, I have:

Writing:

Continued writing Thorn and Thistle. As of yesterday, I’ve completed 23,800 words on the project. The story has taken a couple of interesting twist that I’ll have to resolve very soon so progress is a hair slower than I expected, but taking the extra time is proving valuable. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Began writing “The Ballerina” short story. I’m not very far along on this story. Right now it is little more than a single scene. I expect this story to be a bit of tear-jerker when I get finished with it, but we’ll see.

Wrote “The Cleaning” short story. This is a short story that topped out around 1800 words. What it lacks in length, it makes up for in pure power. It still needs a decent round of edits, but I can’t wait to publish this!

Received a rejection letter about Skinshifter from a publisher. The company cannot take on new authors at this time, but the editor did ask me to resubmit in six months, so I’m quite pleased about that.

Photography and Graphic Design:

Photographed pieces of real estate for several clients.

Posted new art photography on my website: “Rivulets in Gray” and “Green Sea Flock”.

Drew and inked a new design called “Frond Droplets”.

Reading:

Continued reading the Bible. I finished the Gospel of Luke and am now reading Acts.

Began reading The Naked Truth About Self Publishing. This particular book is an excellent resource for writers who are trying the independent or hybrid publishing routes. One word of caution: the book was written by several bestselling romance authors so, while the advice is great, the chapter titles are pretty raunchy.

Began reading Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton for fun and research. I’m enjoying the read so far.

Read a few Writer’s Digest articles. I love this magazine! Its articles have definitely helped me improve my writing skills over the years.

Gaming:

Played Jumbline.

Played Munin.

Played Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights.

Played Minecraft.

Other:

Updated my 2014 company business plan and began writing my 2015 business plan.

Culled and filled office papers in my filing cabinets.

Completed writing, editing, and sent author interview to BookReview.Ninja.com.

Created a Musings book giveaway on Goodreads. By the way, there are only 11 more days to enter the contest!

Organized the books and decorations in the library.

Taught Children’s Church while my husband was gone on business trips

Had repairs done on a kitchen cabinet.

My goals for the next four weeks are to:

Finish the rough draft of Thorn and Thistle.

Finish the rough draft of “The Ballerina”.

Finish editing “The Cleaning”.

Create e-book cover art for the three stories.

Continue marketing Musings in places online.

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better!

How Life Has Changed Since Publication Day

Palm_Fans-4x6ACSince the Musings Publication Day on June 20, I have given my first interview and spent much of my time trying to wrap my head around this whole crazy thing called marketing. For someone like me, who quite prefers a life lived behind the curtain rather than in the spotlight, the idea of giving interviews, autographs, speeches, etc. is horribly daunting. I am beyond flattered when people ask me to sign copies of their books, but there is also a severe amount of shock that washes over me when I see someone holding my work in their hands. Even after all of my hard labor, it’s still difficult to believe that my writing is finally public. Because my writing is so personal, the bizarreness of that fact hasn’t worn off yet.

It also seems that publishing a book is, in many ways, the real beginning of the work’s true existence. Now that its packaged and made public, I have to find ways of getting Musings into the hands of more readers and making those readers excited enough to talk about the work themselves. Readers often get excited about a book because they hear how awesome it is from someone else. That means that I need reviews and press coverage, which means I need lots of people to read the book, which means I need to entice readers to read the book without any reviews already given. For a new author, this circular marketing circus is quite overwhelming.

So what have I done in response to this challenge? Well, two of the things I do best: research and writing. I’ve written over 10,000 words in new fiction material in the past four weeks, which is completely unrelated to Musings. That being said, I have also researched as many review outlets as I could, so that I know where best to spend my marketing budget. I’ve done small amounts of marketing already. Now, however, I plan to throw some serious money and time into the game in the next couple of weeks to help spread word of mouth and drive up book sales. Thanks to a few readers, a couple of reviews have already started to trickle in, but I still need many more. If you’ve read the book, please post a short review on Amazon, GoodReads, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Smashwords, or another great book seller. I will be forever grateful! Thank you!

In the meantime, here is what else I’ve been doing to occupy my time.

Since the last full update in June, I have:

Writing:

Continued writing Thorn and Thistle. My original assumption that this story would be a novelette was completely wrong. As of yesterday, I’ve jumped into novella territory with 17,700 words written and still going strong. I’m working steadily toward the story’s climax, but have yet to reach that final act. The tension keeps building with every scene. I’m actually on the edge of my seat as I write because I desperately want to know what happens next even though I already have the story’s ending in mind. Writing is so much fun!

Sent a query letter about Skinshifter to a publisher. I’m still waiting for a reply.

Photography and Graphic Design:

Posted new art photography on my website: “Marbled Patterns”, “Palacio del Rio in Christmas Colors”, and “Palm Fans”.

Photographed pieces of real estate for several clients.

Photographed plants and wildlife while in South Texas. The “Palm Fans” photo at the beginning of this post is from the South Texas shoot.

Finished my graphic design project for the West of the Pecos Rodeo. Despite the fact that we had to go back to black and white ads this year, the program turned out great!

Reading:

Continued reading Jesus Today by Sarah Young.

Continued reading the Bible. I am almost finished reading the Gospel of Luke. I love Jesus’ advice in this particular book. He is so straight-forward and to-the-point with his examples, parables, and explanations.

Continued reading Duty by former Secretary of Defense Dr. Robert M. Gates. I seem to be stalled on this book. I read voraciously for a few minutes and then get distracted by some project that must be done. I fault myself far more than Gates for this since political memoirs are not my usual choice of reading material. I’ll keep working on it.

Finished reading the From the Indie Side anthology. It is a very entertaining and well-written collection of short stories boasting a wide range of voices, styles, and themes. Anyone who thinks that self-published authors can’t write as well as traditionally-published authors will be pleasantly proven wrong by this book. 4 out 5 stars.

Finished reading On Stranger Tides by Tim Powers. On the whole, I found this pirate book to be a mixed bag. Its unique blend of historical figures and places in combination with fictional characters and magic was certainly interesting and well-developed. Powers’ action scenes are also great. Overall, though, the book’s pacing and character continuity just felt off. Several action scenes of serious swashbuckling proportion are followed by lots and lots of drinking and lazing about on the beach. Our protagonist is gung-ho about righting the wrongs in his life and protecting the damsel in distress and then he isn’t until once again he is. The main character’s mercurial attitude and wishy-washy motivations confused me. I found myself relating better to the book’s villains (who were absolutely horrible people) more than the hero because I at least understood their motivations and could clearly see those motivations inspire their actions. I also wish that the voodoo magic system had been a little more spelled out in terms of the loa and how they interacted directly with the characters and the world. We find that one loa in particular favors the main character, but we’re never really told why. This book was well-written in terms of grammar, spelling, imagery, and world-building, but it felt like the story needed more developmental editing to tie all of the sub-plots together better and clarify some of the characters actions. I give the book 3 out of 5 stars.

Read all of Getting Life by Michael Morton. This was one of those rare nonfiction books that I devoured over a single weekend. Morton’s account of his wrongful conviction for the murder of his wife and then his subsequent 25-year incarceration in some of Texas’ scariest prisons is riveting and, seemingly, quite accurate. Throughout the work Morton’s dry humor helps to propel the story forward and defuse some of the angst in his account. I found his writing style both honest and well-balanced. 5 out of 5 stars.

Gaming:

Played Jumbline.

Played Munin. This is a puzzle game that is based on Norse mythology. The puzzles are challenging, but not stupidly so. So far, I’m really enjoying this game.

Played Peggle Deluxe. Peggle Deluxe and Peggle Nights are goof-off games in the best sense of the phrase. They are somewhat similar to a pinball game. The main objective is to hit and destroy all of the orange pegs on a particular level of the game before you run out of balls to shoot. Sometimes this can prove quite easy; many other times, it’s the most frustrating thing in the world. I love it!

Other:

Enjoyed the MUSINGS Release Day on June 20 with my friends and family.

Took the full weekend of June 21-22 off to help celebrate Musings publication.

Accidentally glued my eye shut while trying to repair a car headliner. Don’t worry, after four days of warm water compresses, my left eye was thankfully back to normal with no damage done. There are still traces of superglue in my eyelashes though. Next time, I absolutely will wear safety gear!

Talked with my husband on the phone a lot while he was his three-week-long business trip.

Volunteered during the West of the Pecos Rodeo.

Took a short road trip to South Texas to visit family.

Had to repair my broken car door window. Thanks to the West Texas heat (110+ degrees F in summer), the rear passenger door window motor quit working. Consequently I had a local auto repair man work on my vehicle this morning. Not only did he fix the window for a reasonable price, but he also restored my headlights. My car looks almost brand new!

My goals for the next four weeks are to:

Continue work on the rough draft of Thorn and Thistle. I would love to see this story finished by the end of August, but that depends on the story’s final length. At this point, I have given up on word count estimates. I assume that the story is a novella (a story that is somewhere between 17,501-40,000 words in length), but that is all I’m willing to assume.

Find out more about how to set up book readings and signings for Musings around my local area.

Begin marketing Musings in places online.

Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better!
