I didn’t get the early start that I wanted to today but I still had a decent days writing, albeit it a slow day’s writing. I went out for a few hours with my folks, which involved a good forty-five minutes to an hour in a car both ways. So I managed to get about 800 words done then. Once I was home I flaked out for a little while and then wrote a blog post looking at my NaNoWriMo which you can find here. I should have written it sooner but my heads not been in it recently and I wouldn’t have done it justice.
Back to the words though. I did crack on slowly while watching some movies in the background and ended the day with 1218 words total on PE3. Today is the first day this month I’ve hit my 1200 word (per day) target. I am thinking I’ve got a slight NaNo hangover, but a few life events have popped up that haven’t helped. But hopefully this has helped get back in the rhythm of what I want to do with this story. I can see the path I need to take and I just need to sit down and get stuck into the journey to the end of this novel.
One thing I need to do is get better at the self promotion stuff. I was invited to contribute to the Ginger Nuts of Horror look at the works of the legend that is Alice Cooper. I was quick to nab the album Trash, you can read the post here. I was really excited to write this post. Trash is the album that made me fall in love with Alice Cooper’s work and I had a lot of fun writing this post and felt very honoured to be including in this look back at Alice Cooper. So please check it out, and the other posts in Alice In Summerland.
I was also interview by The Bold Mom website and boy was it fun to actually be interviewed. After it went live I realised that I hadn’t really done an interview like this before and Mar Garcia did an amazing job putting this interview together. You can read it here. I’ve just read through the interview again and it really is a beautifully put together piece. I know I’m a touch biased but Mar really does go above and beyond with what she does with authors and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.
Please do check out those links. Both were a lot of fun to do. I’m gonna call it a night now and watch a movie.
