I’m Back — For Now

I know it’s been months since I’ve written anything. There’s a reason for that, but it’s not really good excuse. With the lower quality headset that came with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, I had serious problems adapting to using dictation to write. After nearly three decades of typing, getting used to the slow pace and errors that Dragon gave me frustrated me …

Awesome news! Desperate Upload is now available on both Nook and Apple’s iBookstore. Unfortunately, I can’t link to the latter as I do not know how to access iTunes Store on the web. Just search for it, though, and you should be able to find it.

Million Dollar Outlines

Just finished David Farland‘s book ‘Million Dollar Outlines‘. I learned so much, I feel a little overwhelmed. I’ll likely have to go back and reread sections. (Some areas confuse me, for example at one point it seems he’s saying to start a story with a detailed setting, and then in the very next section said never to start with a setting. …

Desperate Upload has received its first review on Amazon.com! I know, not the news I’m supposed to be’s posting about in the weekly update. I just had to share, however.

Sorry, I’m a day late this week. Hopefully, this won’t happen too often. This was another great week. Well, at least half the week was. I beat my daily writing records twice. First, on the 12th, I wrote 802 words. The next day, even better, I did 986. Unfortunately, except for a little bit the next day, that’s all I …

Good news! I hit my goal! In total, I wrote 1396 words this week. I managed this even though I had trouble finding a consistent time to write, which cost me a couple of days. I’ve also set myself up to be able to sell e-books through Kindle, Kobo, and Smashwords. I hope to have my first one ready by …

Goals

Despite my best intentions, last year didn’t go so well for my writing goals. I completed two stories, and part of a novel, and that’s it. Due to my disability, typing became painful, and there was less and less inclined to type. Until now, that is meant that I’ve gotten little in the way of writing done for the last …
