Top Priorities for the Coming Week
Work on compiling/editing/adding to a client’s ebook
Make suggestions to improve the book a second client is writing
Complete a final read-through of a third client’s compilation of devotionals
Complete a devotional and a children’s script for possible inclusion on a new Internet radio station (I’ll have lots more to share in the future as I’m getting in on the ground floor of this project.)
Prep for vendor display at a fundraiser I’m participating in next Saturday
Come up with at least one idea per day for a children’s picture book (I’m participating in PiBoIdMo for the third consecutive year. Yay!)
Morning Pages . . . Monday-Friday (three pages of unblocking my creativity as close to first thing in the morning as possible)
– still hit and miss but had one especially great session this past week
As a participant in in OctPoWriMo, I will be writing 31 poems this month. I missed the kick-off, so I best get at it. (What a great way to get back into the habit of posting here!) Done!
I have begun compiling a file of my writing prompts and hope to make it available as an ebook.
I probably won’t have much – if any – time to work on this in the coming week.
I am also working on a book of devotionals based on the gospel of John. It’s going to take quite awhile to get it together, but I hope to make significant headway before the end of the year.
My added motivation for this project is that these devotionals may be included on the radio station I mentioned above.
I also have my ongoing projects of writing four seniors’ living articles per month and at least six guest blog posts. On target
I am bumping back my goal to compile and publish Life Through the Lens to 2015, which is just around the corner as you well know.
I plan to submit 6-12 picture book manuscripts by the end of Round 4.
I would love to have my ebook of writing prompts available by the end of the year. Since this will be my first foray into ebook publication, we’ll see how it goes.
I’m thinking this, too, will have to wait.
So, here are the novels I have on the go right now . . .
Laura Jackson’s Worth the Wait
Done … just have to write review
Rachel Phifer’s The Language of Sparrows
I’ve read a little more this past week.
Janet Sketchley’s Secrets and Lies
Puttering along (It’s a good book; I most definitely recommend it.)
Rachel Starr Thomson’s Exile
On hold for now
Cathy West’s Yesterday’s Tomorrow (rev.)
I’m making good headway.
. . . and the nonfiction books . . .
Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way
Also on hold
Kathy Ide’s Proofreading Secrets of Best-Selling Authors
I’m going to read more, really I am.
Erin MacPherson’s The Christian Mama’s Guide to Having a Baby
Sleep? Who needs sleep?
Larry and Kathy Miller’s Never Ever Be the Same
I am going to leave it on this list so I don’t forget it – not that I actually would.
I will get back to you.
Say goodbye to this category.
