It’s funny how when you take steps to try to simplify your life somewhat, that it seems like everyone and everything around you just works that much harder to try and make it more complicated.
Did I say “funny”? I meant “frustrating“!
Adjusting to change can often be a challenge, but sometimes it gets just downright ridiculous. We finally got all moved into our new place, but had a hell of a time trying to sublease our old one! That major obstacle has finally been taken care of, but it seemed like a dozen other ‘little’ obstacles had to float up to the surface to try to take its place. Various family situations, juggling things financially, and not to mention I’m such a wuss when it comes to cold weather, has all made it a little difficult to focus on being good little smut-writing perverts.
I have actually been getting a fair amount of writing done. Progress on book 6 of Angel Falls is coming along rather splendidly, thanks in large part to my handy dandy tablet increasing the flexibility of when and where I write. (In fact, writing dirty stories in public surrounded by a bunch of people can actually be quite the thrill all on it own.)
Keeping up with things like promotion and social media however, which is more conducive to do on a laptop other than a tablet, has been pretty much non-existent. My apologies to the folks at Boruma Publishing and Carnaltopia for not contributing yet to their brand new WordPress sites, but as you can see it’s sometimes weeks before I’m even sitting down and contributing to my own sites, let alone taking the time to contribute to others. I do keep up with them though, and link to some of the posts when I have a few moments. (I will work on writing up an author intro to submit soon, I promise!)
One thing I’ve discovered recently is that having more time and opportunity to write doesn’t necessarily result in me getting books out any faster, it usually just allows me to get more detailed in them. As a result, book 6 of Angel Falls is rather quickly reaching novella-length status. I just can’t seem to write “short” stories anymore! Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen, I guess. 🙂 In any event, I hope to have the time to put together some promotional posts for it soon.
Hopefully February will be a little less… complicated.
