Another slow day of writing. Not sure what is up with that. I typically write 1000 to 2000 words a day normally. Why should NaNoWriMo be so difficult for me this year? So far, I have put up eleven poems. Three for Unlined & Undertakers and eight for Ink & Ice. Almost a third of the way through each book. While I am pleased with this progress, I find myself extremely frustration by the lack of communication coming from the characters in Reaper’s Moon. It is challenging to write their story when I’m getting cold shouldered.
Write-Ins are not going as well as usual. Seating is uncomfortable. Coffee was very bitter at the new coffee shops the local group has been trying out. I accidentally consumed something I’m allergic to at the early afternoon write-in, making the evening write-in very uncomfortable. All in all, not a good day. This morning, the laptop refused to work. First the car then the laptop. I was violent toward technology for a little while but, thankfully, I got the laptop back to working order. Although, I came prepared to do write-ins with pen, paper, and iPod if things boiled down to it. I do prefer to write with pen and paper but not the most practical during NaNoWriMo. I’m still trying to get the forty-one pieces I found in October typed up, I don’t need more typing work out of NaNoWriMo.
The free promotion on my books seems to be going well. A lot of folks have downloaded copies. Smoke & Spirit and The Heart of Autumn are the most popular downloads. If you’ve downloaded a copy of any book, please read and leave a review. I would love to know what you thought of it.
