This was technically a seven-day writing week, though it didn’t feel like I did an awful lot – either of paid work or my own projects. Must resurrect a decent work ethic next week, as I suddenly have quite a lot on!
I wrote a review of a book I finished over the weekend.
After a complete failure to launch yesterday, I finally got myself in gear and started going through Dave’s comments on Darkness and adding notes to my revision plan.
I also did some marketing research for my freelance editing and looked into joining some editing associations.
The Revision Club session was – AMAZING – everyone was really lovely and gave me tons of great positive comments about the opening of Darkness, as well as some brilliant criticism and ideas for changes/improvement. The session ended with me feeling much more enthused about the revision process and much more confident that the story is worth working on.
I completed comments on the opening of a memoir for a new client.
Then I prepped for recording the next podcast episode.
Dave and I looked at each other’s responses to the latest Writing Club prompts, discussed our reactions, and then I came up with the next set of prompts.
I wrote a review of a book I finished the night before.
I also continued editing the next few chapters of the women’s fiction book project I started a couple of weeks ago because the author had the next section ready.
I finished editing the women’s fiction chapters and sent them back to the author for review and approval.
I also went through the Revision Club feedback on the Darkness scenes I submitted to the group last week.
Dave and I looked at a couple of the stories in the Nothing Much Happens book to analyse the descriptive writing.
Later, Dave and I recorded the next podcast episode.
I finally got around to recording all Stanley’s Instagram videos for November, in the nick of time as the next one was due to be posted today.
I also signed off on the book cover for Meditations, which was exciting!
Later, I tracked through all my open submissions and ticked off all the newly unsuccessful ones.
I wrote a review of an audiobook I finished.
