This is not good – a day late on my first check in:( head hung in shame – truth be told, I kind of forgot what day it was. It’s becoming a common fault as my days lose their structure – ‘tis just as well I’m climbing back on the swing of things again – too long a break!
This first week occurred on one of my reading weeks, so very little writing stuff done this week. I have reading weeks when my social engagements take up too much of the week, or their are trips to the hairdressers,dentist, doctors or clinic I decided last year that rather than duck out of social life I would not try and beat my self inflicted deadlines on writing but relax and enjoy myself,(I cannot yet socialize and still have the energy to write the same day).
It works well, I sit and read, fiddle and tweak my way through files, networks etc., maybe draft some blogs. It was this regime that allowed me to read 122 books for the Goodreads challenge last year.
I have finished four books (I like more than one on the go at the time)
Heaven and Hell by Jon Kalman Stefansson for my books in translation challenge
Of Mists and Bees by Erick Setiawan for chunky challenge
Started Early Took my Dog by Kate Atkinson a re-read for book group but also for chunky challenge
Wendy Wont Go by Amanda M Lyons (a novella which I received for review).
I also read for review Jo Linsdell’s book on arranging Virtual Book Tours. Jo will be on the Red Carpet later this week with the book. It is excellent.
Blogs: Have drafted introductory posts for the reading challenges. I had thought I had settled on – too many – but then the other night I found a few more! For goodness sake:)
I posted a book review and a post on my dancing life – not a graceful story:(and drafted six more for Sefuty, kiss a frog and alberta reads for the future weeks.
Networking: Still exploring Goodreads, have decided to go there, facebook, twitter each day as well as post the triberr tweets. And leave the other sites too once or maybe twice a week.
Next Week(actually it is this week now)
Is a writing week so will be editing The Children’s Tale – I intend to aim for three hours minimum at least 5 days. I hope by the end of the week I will have pages printed out – as I can edit better on the page. This week I am just removing obvious repeated words and checking spelling.
As I mentioned before I will be hosting Jo Linsdell’s book on the Red Carpet on Thursday.
Continuing with getting a store of blogs drafted, I would hope to begin the A-Z ones next week – fingers crossed.
Others: Am still collected images for Jack’s Tale book trailer also must start planning for a trailer of the Patchwork of Perspectives short stories.
Reading: have just started Attention all Shipping by Charlie Connelly andRough Music by Patrick Gale
I hope everyone has had a good start to the round:)
