Every Friday is Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain and L.G. Keltner.
The rules are blog about something good in your life. It can be something little or something big, but the goal is to find the positive in life and celebrate it. Then hop around the linky list on Lexa's blog and see what others are celebrating.
This week I'm celebrating progress. I finished the notes my editor made for The Incubus and The Asexual, and even formatted it for ebook. The paperback formatting is about halfway done. Teaser graphics and guest posts have been made and written as well. I'm on schedule for release. Oh, I also picked a release day. July 24th. (If you want to help out, you can sign up here.) I must admit, I'm getting a little suspicious of how well things are going, but I'm trying to enjoy the moment.
I've also been getting a lot of painting done and found a way to remove paint from a canvas I want to reuse for a different project.
I also tried a flourless cookie recipe and they turned out really delicious and rich. I wasn't sure how the recipe works, but they have a good texture that is like a regular cookie.
What are you celebrating this week?
The first Wednesday of every month is the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Posts go up the 1st Wednesday of every month. Check it out here and join if you need support with your writing. Don't forget to stop by and say hi to the co-hosts: Beverly Stowe McClure, Tyrean Martinson, and Ellen @ The Cynical Sailor!
Yeah, I'm pretty insecure. After all, I got notes back from my editor and there's some work to be done. None of it looks too painful, but I definitely cringed when reading her notes. I'm confident I can get them done by July for release day (I have still yet to pick an exact date, but you can sign up to host me, here.)
It's also shaping up to being an emotional month. As I said in my Write Motivation post, it's my brother's funeral this month, so I'm not putting a lot of pressure on myself to be productive with writing. I'm already a bit of a mess just thinking about the funeral.
I'd also like some opinions. I read a blog the other day that stated blogs shouldn't use the read more function and make readers click to read the whole post. I thought I'd give that a shot and see if that did increase my reads, but I'm wondering what other people think? Do you have the full post show on the main blog page or do you use read more?
IWSG Day Question: What's harder for you to come up with, book titles or character names?
Hands down book titles. I have finished stories that do not have real title names. Characters usually tell me their names, or I search names and pick one that fits who they are.
I kept my goals for May light since I was worn out by the A to Z Blogging challenge.
I'm not sure how productive June will be for me. The 16th is my brother's funeral, and while there's not much I have to do other than show up that weekend, it's going to be emotional to say the least and that alone will be exhausting. It'll probably be wiser to keep it simple again.
