First of all, I published a book: Charms of the Feykin!
I’ll wait why you go buy a copy. *whistles the He-Man theme*
The only way to properly explain this week to the 3’s of people that wander over here during the weekend is giving you a day by day. Buckle in and you’ll see why I might be in a padded room by the time this post goes live.
Got my son off to school, did my biking, and got 3 chapter sections done. Made Zesty Chicken & Potatoes for dinner. This was a good day. I should have known this was a bad sign.
A day with no errands or appointments? Toss that kid on the bus, shower, and dive right back into Book 14. Got a section done with a little trouble from a character that went from ‘no name’ to joining the main plot. I’ll fix that while I eat a simple lunch of . . . where did half of my tooth go? Yup. I spent most of the day at the dentist getting a temporary crown on the tooth and I go back in two weeks for the permanent one. It was almost time for my son to come home by the time I got back and I hadn’t eaten. Rest of day was food shopping and finally getting some food. Vaguely remember a second chapter section that night, but I could be wrong since my brain was shot.
I published a book! Legends of Windemere: Charms of the Feykin was set up and I spent the morning doing all the promo prep. Took longer than expected, so my biking and shower didn’t happen until around noon. Still, I had the afternoon to . . . an electrician is coming to fix something? Guess I have to clear out of my office/room. Oh, the thing wasn’t even broken to begin with. Guess I’ll go back and . . . I just remember that I have to call the school about my son’s Epi-pen. Everything has expired? Guess I’m off to the pharmacy to get the refills and hurry back to . . . At least, I only have a morning errand and meeting tomorrow. No writing today.
The big announcement of Legends of Windemere: Charms of the Feykin going live! The morning meeting is earlier? Great. Just rush over to the school, drop off the meds, and come back for the home meeting. My son threw up on the bus? I have to come and get him when I was just at the school? Meeting cancelled, Darth Vader backpack no longer usable, and kid shows no sign of disease. He had motion sickness, so I spent the morning hunting for a new backpack. Spider-Man was out since he wanted Star Wars, but then he didn’t want to get anything another store because he wanted superheroes. One clearance rack talking, light up BB-8 backpack and McDonald’s Happy meal later, we’re home to watch the LEGO MOVIE. Managed to keep up with tweets and other stuff, but not much in the way of promotion beyond that. Frustrated and tired, I could only crawl into bed by the end of the night. The kid could have at least pretended to be sick and not asked me several times for his trampoline. He apparently didn’t understand the phrase, “No because daddy would like to weaken the idea that he got tricked’.
Biking and shower, but trying hard to avoid getting into stuff until I’m sure the kid isn’t going to need a pick up. Eased into writing a scene that is totally different from what I had outlined. I blame the new character who is fun to write, but making me feel like she’s my punishment for being mean to Kira so many times. Got only 2 sections done, but hoping to get a little further over the weekend.
That was my week and here’s what I’m planning next week:
- Continue pushing to promote Charms of the Feykin.
- Continue writing against all odds.
- Other stuff.
