I have a headache from video-game withdrawal

Sometimes things just don’t work out the way you intended. I thought I would be done with the first draft of Witch Blood by time I went on vacation last week, but I was only about 3/4 of the way done. I told myself I would write every day while my son was napping and after he went to sleep at night. But somehow that didn’t happen and instead I read or took a nap of my own. In fact, on the entire vacation, I got just over 1,000 words written! But I was so disappointed in myself that the day I came back I immediately wrote over 3,000 words in one day, which for me is pretty good. Another thing that’s helping is I have told myself that I’m not allowed to play any video games until I’m done. Sadly, this is probably my biggest motivator!

One productive thing I did do while on vacation was plan and outline the rest of the Vampire in the City series! I don’t want to give away any titles just yet, but it looks like it’s going to be six books. S0me other things of moderate productiveness include a guest blog of mine on ParaYourNormal about getting the right beta readers for your novel. Also, I sold my soul to KDP, so Prime members can now borrow my books for free.

Finally, in personal news, I became vegan a few months ago, and have many options on vegan food that I can’t keep to myself.
