Yesterday was Monday, which is a full 14-hour day for me (Day Job #1 from 8a-4p, then Day Job #2 from 4-10p), and today was a bit of a Cat Day (more because I felt like crap than because I was being deliberately lazy), so I haven't had the best start to the week.
But I have off from Day Job #2 on Wednesdays, and I *might* even have only a half a day at Day Job #1 tomorrow, so I can get some words written in the new WIP tomorrow.
Long time, no write here. I have no excuse. Moving on.
Spent a good chunk of yesterday and today prepping for and then emailing the 800ish people who signed up for the Other Worlds giveaway. So far, it looks like about a quarter of the people actually opened the email I sent them, and half of those actually clicked my links to get the free full copy of White Stone I was offering them (since the Other Worlds excerpt was only "A Sin" and "Day 1"). So, I think this might actually work out, at least a little bit. I've got plans for continuing to warm up that traffic, so hopefully I'll have an email list that breaks double digits by the end of this experiment. :)
I got a desk yesterday. It's pretty small, just one of those cheap Amazon prefabbed things that took me about 40 minutes to assemble last night, but it holds my computer and fits nicely in this weird little corner I have in my house, and I spent a goodly amount of my birthday gift card on this nice faux-leather office chair and a bit of tech to give me some standing desk options, so I finally have, like, an office space, and I'm kind of ridiculously proud about that. Makes me feel all legit.
The new office corner, currently still sans standing desk accessories, but those are on their way, too.
I want to make a living with my writing. I want the office corner to be where I work. I want it so much it actually hurts when I think about it.
Yeesh. Moving on.
I can't spend more than a minute of quiet before I start thinking about the worldbuilding workshop I'm going to in July. I'm so freakin' excited about it, I can't stand it! (I'm sure it'll take up at least a week or two of the diary as it comes, happens, and finishes, so you'll be hearing plenty about it in the future.)
And the Wild Tides cover reveal will be happening next Tuesday on my Twitter and Facebook page, and it's another of those awesome covers by Yana Yakubchik, so stay tuned!
