Just work

I’m a fairly regular blogger. People come here to learn something interesting, have a laugh, and hang out. There are times when there just isn’t anything all that fun to post about.

Part of being a writer involves a lot of things that aren’t research, or drafting new material. It still has to get done, and that’s what this weekend was all about for me. It isn’t all robot girls and talking yaks around here.

I wrote one more micro-fiction for my Macabre Macaroni event, then assembled and scheduled all five of them. To top it all off, I did an intro post for these stories and scheduled it too. (Six posts.)

I updated this site Friday night, and then there is this post. (Seven posts.)

I also wrote, assembled, and scheduled something for Story Empire on October 1st. (Eight posts.)

I already mentioned scheduling the interview for Thursday, and the idea that Lisa needs guests once more.

On top of that, I managed to write 5000 words of new fiction. I’m a little dubious about this one, because it’s something I’ve never tried before.

It was all work. It wasn’t sexy, but it needed to get done. I’ll probably spend a bit of time looking for some good wallpaper to lead into the next month.

I hope all of you were either productive or had a good time somewhere.

  2. Too bad they can’t all be robot girls, talking yaks, and magical hats.

    The other part of writing: research. Sometimes fun, sometimes not.

    Glad you had a productive weekend! Looking forward to seeing the fruits of your labor.

  6. Glad you had such a productive weekend.

    My weekend sucked. There was the gas issue I know you saw mentioned on Facebook Friday night, and then threats from nasty neighbour and her boyfriend Saturday night that were bad enough we had the police out.

  8. You got a lot accomplished. I’m still struggling with the opening of my WIP. Sigh.

  9. Fantastic, Craig. You made a lot of progress! You are right. A writer’s work isn’t always glamorous or fun, but necessary. I’m enjoying beautiful Sedona Arizona for a week.

  10. Another post, another productive… Wait, I’m starting to think Lisa isn’t the only robot here. Craig?

  11. I always applaud progress Craig, especially when that progress results in more fun stories to read – cuz I’m an addict who, for lack of something worth reading, like someone deprived of air, instinctively would otherwise reach out for the back of a cereal box or junk mail. . . Sad, I know.

  12. Hi Craig! That’s right. Writing isn’t all glamorous. πŸ˜‰ I like to read about what goes on behind the scenes though. I’m working on a synopsis, blurb and back cover copy for my new book, Son of the Serpent. I’m also working on the formatting for the book. Two of the hardest things ever! It’s time like these I wish I had a publisher. Oh well.
    I’m almost ready for an interview with Lisa. I would like to get the synopsis ready first because I think it would help to get things set up. All the best!

  13. Wow! When do you ever sleep? I’m so jealous (in a good way, of course) of the way you manage to get so much done. Very impressive! ❀
