Goal Post: Hooked a Little to the Left

Well, Legends of Windemere: Path of the Traitors is in the bag as far as first drafts go.  My confidence has been shaky lately, so I’m looking forward to an editing run next year to get things cleaned up.  One of the hard parts is that the focus character is rather unflappable, but I have to try and get under her skin.  This book will be the late summer release, which gives me plenty of time.  Means I can focus on:

Legends of Windemere: Warlord of the Forgotten Realm
Legends of Windemere: Warlord of the Forgotten Age
Legends of Windemere: The Forgotten Warlord

Really hoping one of these titles works.

Not much else to say about the week.  I worked hard on the writing and getting some other things in order.  Got a set of blurbs done for the December release and prepped all the big posts for November and December.  It looks like I might actually get all of the small projects done before November, which means I can tackle the final book with little else on my mind.  Might even get to editing Chasing Bedlam before the new year.

This weekend is going to be a little chaotic due to a personal thing that I don’t have permission to talk about.  All I can say is that I’m solo parent until Monday and my son seems determined to take advantage of this.  Good thing next week is low key because things could get messy here.  Keeping up with Twitter and the blog might be a big juggling act.  Wait, this reminds me of one ‘big’ thing that happened.

My old phone (an iPhone 4) became unreliable last week.  Me, my wife, and little Superman had gone to the zoo for their Halloween stuff.  The phone went from 70% battery to 6% in a matter of minutes.  Drove me a little nuts because my phone is how I tell time thanks to a running gag of losing watches or simply not remembering them. Got back to the car and it woke up at 51%.  It’s also been refusing to accept that the house was Wifi for the last two months.  I took care of this on Monday by trading in for an iPhone 6S that I’m still figuring out.  Got all my social media on there including a return to the WordPress app that has already crashed on me 2 times.  Only using it to check notifications, which isn’t so bad.  I’ve also learned that I don’t like Siri’s attitude and figure she can go to sleep for a while.  Seriously, I can’t imagine having my wife, my son, Siri, and the GPS talking during car trips.  Anyway, that’s the pricey adventure of the week.

Sorry if this isn’t much to report.  Life has been either boring or unable to be reported due to the personal nature.  I have been watching a few episodes of ‘Arrow’, but I haven’t caught the first episode.  The reruns are all over the place and I keep catching parts of season 4 or episode 5 of season 1.  Yes, I know Netflix or something similar might have it, but the TV doesn’t do streaming.  Can’t use the computer because then I wouldn’t be able to write.  Need to rent the DVD’s from the library when the wife and I have a clear path to watching them.

What’s the plan for the week?

  1. Parenting
  2. Return to biking after a month off.  The tooth problem made it difficult to focus, but it’s mostly healed now.
  3. Fix outline for Legends of Windemere: Insert Title Here.
  4. Blurbs for Chasing Bedlam.
  5. Maybe play some Symphony of the Night.
  6. Prepare for Halloween.
  7. Whatever I’m forgetting.

  1. I have a new 6ES which is the smaller version of the 6S. I really like it.

  2. I was going to go with a smaller phone this time, but the plus has a bit better processor. I don’t want to buy another one for a long time, so I wanted to start at the top of the curve.

    Hope you made through the week end!
    We’re chaotic here, as well. The home maintenance, rounding the final curve with my friend’s cancer treatments – 5 weeks of radiology every day…getting ready to hunker down for late fall and all of winter.
    Here’s to a not-so-horrible week for both of us, Charles.
    Cheers!
