Greetings! I hope this Monday morning--or whatever time or day you read this--finds you well. Today is more or less random musings and updates, nothing especially well-organized.
-First, I created a 'Publications' page. It feels a little funny, doing this, but hey, I've got published works, I suppose I need to plug them! I hope to add more to it, though I'm not actively shopping short stories at the moment, focusing primarily on revisions.
-Revisions are going pretty well, though I suppose the proof will come further down the road. I got in some very good work Friday night and yesterday morning, so I'm pretty happy with my progress.
-Our writers' circle anthology is nearly sold out. We had a relatively small print run (100 copies) to start, but now we're down to...hmm, not entirely certain, likely in the teens. One of the group members is taking a bunch down to a big arts event this coming weekend, so we should make some sales there. Reprint? Maybe. Volume 2 next year? We'll see....
-Two weeks ago tomorrow (say what?) we did another reading at another arts group. I did not 'nail it' this time. I read too fast. I'll blame the heat--it was hell hot in the room, and part of me wanted to get done before all the sweat fell off my face and soaked my pages. A woman in the front row looked to be sleeping. I'd prefer to think she was visualizing.
-At our circle yesterday, we had a member from another writers' group in attendance. We do a prompt and write for 30-45 minutes. His group will use prompt words and write in ten minute bursts. They do 3 or so rounds per session. It's nice to have a new voice in the group. I'd consider going down to sit in with them but it's a half hour drive on Monday evenings. I might have to skip my regular group one week and visit the other--it's good to experiment.
That's about it for me. How was your weekend?
