Progress Friday

Hey beautiful people

Okay - get your wet noodles ready; I deserve the thrashing I'm about to get... for, you see, I don't have much progress to show on the WIP.

Worse - I switched WIPs...

I did get some brush-off-the-dust moments on Against The Odds, my romantic comedy that revolves around the heroine's breast cancer diagnosis; however, no new words added to it.

That being said, I do have my priorities sorted - my focus isn't more on producing completed works now, but ensuring that the world out there knows I have books out & coming out this year (aka Marketing & Promotion!). And like I always maintain - no one wants to be nice to a cow... so the first rule of marketing & promo? Don't behave like a cow!

Which implies slowly but surely building relationships & friendships with people, esp readers (as fellow Noble Romance author, the best-selling Margie Church, has told me). So I've been a little bit more involved on Goodreads this week. Dunno the results of this effort, or if it's even borne fruit... but I can tell you I am enjoying meeting readers from all walks of life and discovering new people and their likes & dislikes.

In another way, I am once again learning how to juggle and adjust my routine - next week, I should have it smoothed out, whereby I can get some 'real' writing done too. Got a few freelance projects to settle this weekend, but next week, I hope to get back on the ball.

What are ye all up to this weekend?

Hope you have a nice Friday/Saturday/Sunday!

From Mauritius with love,

No wet noodle thrashings Zee unless I get them too! ;) I'm still trying to play catch up after being sick for a week and a half so I'm behind on everything.

Here's to both of us having a more productive week next week! Have a fabulous weekend Zee :)

We’ve been having great weather but this week end snow cold etc. We’ve been spoiled. Got my hair done today so it’s VERY red lol and took girl friend for lunch for her birthday. On the writing front hope to finish my Rowling paper. Not sure can call it writing but it’s how I work. Piecework. Due to a query I made to a friend I now know how one of my six characters meets his wife. Put it together overnight and up very early to write the notes so don’t forget. At the beauty parlor I figured more of it out so may start to write. I guess I work like a jigsaw puzzle and get the pieces and then stitch them together for the story. I’m glad I figured out how he meets her as it had me concerned. Don’t forget to check me out on Sunday :D

That's awesome, Sue! WTG on the writing process. Lol, I know what you mean - I piece together bits & pieces of a story over a few months and then sit down to write it, patch it together as you say.

We're actually under the influence of a strong cyclone here - so I might not have power and/or Internet tomorrow. But will do my best to post SSS and drive by yours.
