Through the Looking Glass: July

ThroughTheLookingGlass

Hi All!

So. My blog has been quiet for the last few days. It’s been a very busy month and it’s only getting busier. So I am asking for your forgiveness and asking you to bare with me until the end of July. I promise I’ll get back to my regular schedule once I’ve caught up to all the deadlines:

Reading:

I haven’t forgotten my review. I finished the book, the review is in drafts I just need to complete it. And then there is a backlog of book reviews I still need to do as well:

Stephen King – Doctor Sleep: Done

Michael Smorenburg – Life Games: To Read

Xane Fisher – BoyzNite: To Read (Blog Tour on the 27th)

JT Lawrence- Sticky Fingers: To Read

Mary Ann D’Alto – He Counts Their Tears: To Read

Willow Palecek – City of Wolves: To Read

Melissa F. Olson – Nightshades: To Read

Jennifer Withers – The War Between: Communicating with author

Writing:

As you know, it’s camp NaNo right now, 15 days in and another 16 to go (if my math is correct).  I’ve had a slow start to the week, but I managed to push through to 25,000 words and hopefully to 30,000 by this weekend. So I won’t have a Friday Fiction today.

Number of Days: Word count:
Day 1: 0
Day 2: 3590
Day 3: 535
Day 4: 4612
Day 5: 189
Day 6: 5476
Day 7: 1807
Day 8: 0
Day 9: 0
Day 10: 2522
Day 11: 1437
Day 12: 1086
Day 13: 4282
Day 14: 0
Day 15: Today=0
Total: 25,536

 

Patreon:

As you all know (now you will), I joined Patreon and got my first official Patreon. I have to submit a short story between 1000-3000 words with the theme: Last Robot on Earth. I have so many ideas I want to implement, including videos and artwork and and and. But… gee time is running out. Squeezing everything into one month is quite a challenge, especially considering I still have to go to work, work for my designated 9 hours, drive back, and do what I have to. I haven’t even played my Xbox in a long time, and I”ve cut down on my Hearthstone and League of Legends because… well I ain’t got time for that!

I’m supposed to say “No” to any more work, right? But:

Pledge $1 or more per Per story

  • A Patreon-only short story (between 1000 and 3000 words) of your making. You tell me what you want and I will give it to you
  • Insight into the making of the story, including sources, first drafts, revisions etc.

If you would like to pledge and get your own Patreon-only short story (I will not publish or sell it anywhere – unless you want me to or something.), then please feel free to do so:
