In terms of exercise this week, I got in three half hour sessions between Monday and Thursday. Weekends are tough for exercise, but I’m sure mopping and sweeping can add to my healthy minutes, right? Check into the Healthy Writers’ Club to see how the others are doing. Join, and stay accountable, if you have a mind.
This week, I managed to turn 1,000 words of a story written ages ago, into a 5,000 –word saga of betrayal. I’m adding that to the word count for the second volume of Don’t Get Mad…Get Even, which I’ve kept free on Amazon. To my surprise, it has copped the number one spot in the free Kindle store several times since April of this year. Haven’t figured out yet how that happened, other than me tweeting randomly now and then. Good thing is, that book hasn’t left the top ten since April and so I’m keeping the same theme for the second cover with brand recognition in mind.
Anyway, the Kicked to the Kerb (Curb for Americans) shorts will be about people who get their walking papers from someone who’s had enough of being abused.
Have you checked lately to find out how many short stories you have lying around that you could be doing something with? As of now, I have enough to do at least two collections. See how a writer’s job is never done?
For those of you who are enterprising, old stories can make money for you (no matter how small) if you put them together in an anthology. Little projects like these help us remember that writing
can be a is a business, depending on how we
treat it and should be treated as such, unless of course we’re writing
solely for the pleasure of it.
We’ve had a lot of rain recently and so I leave you with some shots of what’s blooming outside, here in sunny Jamaica.
