#WIP Monday – It’s Been Crazy!!!

Last week was hectic. I found myself split several directions between family, writing, and designing covers. Overall, I got a lot done last week just not much with my writing. These were my goals last week:

  1. Work on Tarzinëa’s Timeline.
  2. Write another chapter for Episode One in The Celestial One season.
  3. Edit my flash fiction tales and get them scheduled up to November.
  4. Write up Karigan and Silvashi’s story for the next installment in the Tales of Ferrês series.
  5. Send out my first newsletter and start thinking about what I will do for my upcoming online events.

Each week I do a post in my Street Team featuring a myth or legend from my world Tarzinëa, last week I did it on the Elven Goddess, Salza. I thought doing these posts would take away from my writing time, however it helps more than I want to admit. These posts give me a reason to write and work on my world building. At least then I know some kind of work is being done.

Last week I struggled with writing. It seemed my brain was more in designer mode. This isn’t that bad since I pushed out six pre-made covers and got a good sale from one. Overall, I wish I spent more time writing but when I am trying to do everything myself it gets complicated.

Been trying to get noticed more in the writing community, so I’ve been signing up for events, newsletter swaps and taking part in groups. Then trying to figure out Instagram is another can of worms. I set my Instagram up for my design business so far, but I plan to set one up eventually for my author platform. Just another social platform to take up more of my time. It will be nice to work towards being able to hire a PA to do this all.

I am changing up my schedule, used to have Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for writing. Then the other days were for designing with the weekends being family time. I realized I have free time more during the weekend so I will switch my days around. Mondays will be my day for social media posting, setting up blog posts, and planning out my newsletters/content for events. Then Tuesdays, Thursdays and anytime on the weekends will be for writing. The other days I will work on designing covers or working them into my schedule when more clients sign up for services.

When it comes for next weeks goals, I think I will stick with the same ones from last week with a few changes. My goals for next we are:

  1. Work on Tarzinëa’s Timeline.
  2. Write another chapter for Episode One in The Celestial One season.
  3. Edit my flash fiction tales and get them scheduled up to November.
  4. Write up Karigan and Silvashi’s story for the next installment in the Tales of Ferrês series.

WHAT’S NEW!

I believe this week I have little new besides getting my first newsletter sent out to my subscribers. If you’re not signed up for my newsletter, you can check it out here. You can sign up here to get my short story, A Father’s Protection free.

There was an update to my FREE PROMOTION’S page. I switched up how I do things with my forms to make it easier for authors to sign-up for my Friday Author Spotlights. You’ll have the choice between four types of spotlight features: Basic Author Spotlight, Guest Post Spotlight, Author Interview and Character Interview. If you are interested, you can check out more details here.

Plan to add a new feature to my site hoping to get myself reading more. The idea is to list my to-read list of books and when I mark them off the list, I will post a review on my blog and several other locations. Right now I am growing my list and have it getting longer. I enjoy fantasy and pretty much any sub-category genre within it. If you want to make suggestions add your suggestions below.

Hopefully, things will go better next week with my writing till next time :). Happy reading and writing ya’ll.
