As January progresses, I find my time is dragging by. I've been able to get some decent work done on Surge and a side story based on another character from the book. I want so much to get short stories out to my newsletter subscribers. What's stopping me? Properly editing them. I can't stand getting a free "book" only to find multiple typos and style issues which keep me from truly enjoying it. So I've been trying to work on two things at once to get at least one short story ready to send out. If you want in on that, scroll to the bottom of any page on my website and you'll find the newsletter sign-up section.
With business out of the way, let's take a look at this week's challenges!
#AuthorFAQChallenge: Days 17 - 23
The prompts were fun this week! Check them out and feel free to share your own answers in the comments. Do we have any in common?
#FantasyWIPJan20: Days 17 - 23
These prompts were also pretty fun. I had to think to answer some of them. What about you? Care to answer any of these in the comments?
#1WordPromptChallenge: Days 17 - 23
Here are the prompts, though I didn't catch them all this past week:
She could barely see him, couldn’t swim. How was she to catch him? “You’re already floating without holding on to me. Come on!” And with that, he sank below the glassy ripples.
Kol could barely see his charge who was frozen in shock and surely near to panicking. “You don’t have to worry. If you follow my instructions, all will be well. Just be calm.” He waited and then added quickly, “And don’t talk back to me, either.”
“What about one of these?” He pointed to a black glashiin medallion embossed with a silvery moon.
#SelfEditing Challenge Week 3
At least, I think this is technically week three of my self-editing challenge. This one is a personal challenge I set for myself. Over the past week, I managed a read-through of The Tale of Outh'n Durr with my oldest daughter. Whew! It's rough and will require some intensive work to make it what it needs to be. Y'all please pray! I'd like to have that story completely finished by the end of March or early April.
So this is how my week went. How about y'all? Any of these prompts strike your fancy? Recall fond memories? Feel free to share in the comments. I'd love to hear what you have to say. :)
