Progress Report: June 03-09, 2018

Last week, I got moving on the words, but I also had to line up an edit for this week’s release. You won’t have seen a lot of me on the net. Of course, this week was the week, I had two shocking night’s sleep, a bout of depression, and then came down with the flu. I dealt with the source of the depression, but it still ate one day to deal, and then made the next two slow going. When I’m down, I’ve discovered that the only way up is by finding a way forward, otherwise it all piles up on me… and being sick doesn’t help. I’d shaken most of that, if not the flu, by the end of the week.
On the writing front, I got to over half way on the next novel in the Mack ‘n’ Me ‘n’ Odyssey series and two thirds of the way through the first Long Hair rewrite. As you can see by the blanks below, I have a busy week ahead. I have to get Mack ‘n’ Me: Arach out the door, and set The Depredides Dance up for pre-order. I’d also like to finish Mack ‘n’ Me: The Transporter’s Favour, although that one is more likely to take until the 20th. Still, it can’t hurt to try, right?
Anyway, this is what was done, this week:

Progress Report—May 27-June 02, 2018

This week I found a break between publishing tasks and sorted a few things out. I was also very happy to get kicking with the words, again. Mind you, the words were easy, given I had strict orders for two days’ rest after having a skin lesion removed from my leg, and then restricted movement for a bit of time after that. My much better half took over much of the daily household tasks for a few days, and I had no excuse not to write. All in all, I produced, in the last few days, just over half what my total was for the entirety of May.

This week also saw updates to my following social media sites:
And I continued to upload my backlist to the Kobo store as well as to Draft2Digital for distribution.

May 2018 – Writing Round-Up

There was not a lot of writing progress, during May, but that is my own fault, as I allowed the publishing pile to build up, and also did some work on my on-line presence. Last week's progress was as follows:

 

Progress: May, 2018


In addition to all this, I also created:


I also updated


All of that took a bit of time, but it should make my work a bit easier to find, and explains what happened to the words in May. Here's looking to June being more with the story, and less with the updating of things. Have a great month, all!
