Projects, a New Job, and Hassles

September just started and I am going crazy with trying to keep up with everything. To help make things even worse, I start a part-time job yesterday. The job is pretty easy to do, but the training is so boring. I wanted to kill myself yesterday—the clock just moved so slow. Either than that it was nice to get away from the screaming kids for a few hours. I plan to only work short hours during the week and every other weekend. Still that takes a lot of time away from design projects and my writing.

Things have been going slowly on the writing front. I started writing the final story in my Tales of Ferrês series. I got about 1k into it then found myself stuck for over two weeks. Nothing I did made me want to finish it. So, the day before yesterday I decided to re-write the entire story from scratch. This seemed to do the trick because I could make some headway into it finally. I am hoping if time permits I will complete half of it tomorrow since I have the day off. But, that depends on if the boys let me work on the computer or not. They have been getting pretty naughty lately, so that leaves that up in the air.

If I don’t get the story to where I want it tomorrow I gave myself two weeks to write it. Then will come the fun part—editing. Right now my editor is in her busy time with her other job. So, it will be a work in process to get this one done on time. I am thinking of having it release at the end of October. Then release the bundle book in November. I will be glad when this project is done and out of the way. I am excited about getting started on my other books for next year.

**Cough…Cough** Changing the subject, I have been working on a 30 step process to writing a novel, created by Renee Scattergood. It is taking longer than I thought to get through all the steps so I can get to the writing part. I did this process with my WIP, ‘Gargoyle Sighted’. This is the book I have been releasing by the chapter each month to my Dragon Ryder VIP Members. Since this process is changing a lot, this month I will miss the deadline and double up in November. I plan to write this entire series before I start on my next book series. Hoping this process works to kick out series faster.

If you can’t tell my month will be busy with the addition of having a normal day job. So wish me luck and hopefully next month I will have good news for everyone on my writing projects.

Till next time.
