9th of December 2018

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.

NaNoWriMo 2018- Day Ten

After A slow start I hit the word count and rolled past it to 2074 for a total of 22680 words  for NaNo.

I didn’t get much else done today. I finished up about 2pm sort of time and then did some gaming (I wrapped up Gears Of War: Judgement). I do want to get stuck into PE3 again, but that can wait for December if need be.

It has been somewhat of a lowkey day if I’m honest. I am happy I passed 2k again. I’m still three days ahead which I think will start dropping off once I’m back at work next week. I’d really like a 3k day tomorrow to up that buffer a bit more but I’ll see how that goes. I am hosting a Write-In tomorrow which should push those numbers up a little.

I forgot to mention yesterday but I had an article published on The Gingernuts of Horror website as part of their Alice In Summerland series. This series looks at the works of Alice Cooper and my contribution focuses on his album, Trash. Please go over and check it, and the rest of the series out.

June 1st 2018

I’ve not done any writing today. I wasn’t planning on doing too much to be honest but I did do a little pimping for the announcement of The Ginger Nuts of Horror summer series, Alice in Summerland.

This series looks at the career of the one and only Alice Cooper, and I am one of the contributors. I am very much looking forward to reading this look at one of the iconic musicians of the last few decades.

Please click the link and have a look at what you’re in line for. The line up of contributors for Alice In Summerland is pretty epic! I’m proud to be part of that line up.
