2017 #ROW80 Round 1: Update #7

The last couple of days have been hectic. I started writing the guest posts for my February release, and I’m at six out of twenty. Plus, I have been trying to work on my edits and new WIP. What I realized is that the more time I spend promoting, the less I want to work on any new content. Even my reading is down, which I think might be part of the problem.

I hope to be done with the edits by the end of the month, and I really need to start writing my new WIP since it’s a sequel. And as I’m typing this blog post, I think just I found the reason why I haven’t start it. Making it into a series seems forced. I think it wants to be a companion to the already published short story instead of the start of a trilogy. See, this is the reason I love writing these updates, They help me organize my ideas.

Now you would have to wait until Sunday to see what I’m going to do because I don’t know, yet. I have to go and put pen to paper and see what happens.

PS. I changed the post’s title from Bouncing Around & Around to Eureka! after I wrote the post.:-)

So Far:

  • 1 book read
  • 3 regular blog posts written
  • 6 guest blog posts written
  • 1 flash fiction piece
  • Lots of promo work

A Round of Words in 80 days is the writing challenge that knows you have a life.



  1. Lack of reading definitely hurts my urge too write new material (though too much, or any of the ‘wrong type’ trashes the urge too). Maybe you could listen to a book on tape or something?

    Whatever you find to help you along–keep writing. That’s how you have something to market.
