February Word Challenge: Day 12

2017-02-12T18:44:10-06:00February 12th, 2017|February Word Challenge|Comments Off on February Word Challenge: Day 12

Huh. Been a while since I've sat down to do this. I've been battling a medium-sized head cold for the past few days, and work has been a bear. I'm on a team of 3 people. 1 has been out for 3 weeks (he's back Monday!!!), and the other has [...]

What happened to day 7?!?! Wow. It flew right by and I didn't even notice. I worked from home yesterday and barely had time for a snack during the day. I certainly didn't have the 10 minutes it takes to do these writing exercises. Today isn't much different, but I'm [...]

Day 5 flew by (shopping and then the Super Bowl) and right after I got home, I crashed and burned. My wife is sick right now, and I think my body is fighting it off as well. This means my energy reserves are low, so my time slotted for doing [...]

What happened to day 3?!?! Well, the Day Job was SUPER busy, and I had to work on another large project at lunch and during the evening. The next thing I knew, it was the 4th. Things happen. No need to beat myself up for missing a day. On with [...]

I received an email from my publisher, WordFire Press, on October 25th asking for the "current final manuscript" of Griffin's Feather. They'd assigned an editor to the project, and were ready to move forward with the publishing process. Instead of being elated or excited, my main emotion was nerves. Loads [...]
