The Two Hundred and Sixty-Ninth Post: The One Where My Writing Philosophy Is Simple…

…”write like a meth-addled badger.” Yeah – that’s going give you a good image to reflect on. The idea is that I have to constantly put out material. I didn’t do much yesterday – but I did do something, more on that later. The sales continue on and I am continuing the outline for Cat, Rabbit and Clover at work. I have to admit, I am getting more headway at work than I am at home. I might end up setting up an ‘office’ in a Starbucks or a Panera so I can use my Chromebook effectively. I doubt that my place of work would be happy to have me open up my laptop and just start typing away. In fact, I think they fired someone for that. Well, there have been a lot of firings and quittings where I work. Hopefully, I will be one of the latter soon.

The outline continues on, and since today is Thursday I should get through the third act. If I can maintain this rate I should be able to get the outline finished before the end of the month (and maintaining my resolution!). I think I’ve come to the end of the chapter in Tyro’s novel, so I might just end it there and start the next one – Chapter 10 where we find the medium sized city and we’ll get another good break from the pace. Perhaps we’ll get treated to another flashback? Who knows? I am starting to diverge a little from the outline I have set-up here, but not enough to have to re-write something. I am delaying the appearance of one of the minor villains to keep the surprise intact. With any luck, I will be able to keep this pace up.

Tomorrow, I need to run out and pick up a printer. One of the things I am going to do is make some cards with the link to the Kindle version and the paperback version of the novel on one side. I am not sure if I want to put a QR code linking to the blog. Yes, I have the links to the books here on the left, but a lot of the earlier blog posts here are somewhat personal (this was put up before I thought to use this as a vehicle to sell stuff) and I am unsure if I want to leave them up for the public, or maybe seal them off somehow. I’ll have to make a decision soon, since I am going to set up a website and have it running (we hope) by the end of the third quarter. That also reminds me, I need to look at web hosting and getting some prices. Any suggestions?

Oh – I have to share this. I found this in my inbox. Check out the first book offered:

I can’t blame them for not selling my book.

Well, I should go wrap up the chapter and get started on the next one. I hope y’all have a good day and always feel free to leave a comment (and buy a book from the finely crafted links to the right).
