Wednesday Weekly Roundup


Soooo… already back to the old template, LOL! Last week I wrote almost 12K, which brought the yearly total to almost 60K – so 440K to go for my yearly goal! ๐Ÿ˜€ I wrote two short stories and started on a third that I will finished on Monday. Next week I have Mighty Editor booked, so she’s getting some work! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have two more shorts I’d like to write before going back to the Novel That Had Been Shelved (that was put in a drawer for the past couple of weeks because… deadlines on short stories).ย  Hopefully in March I’ll get back to it, which is good, since it’s happening now, LOL!

I took it easy during the weekend (again, between projects procrastination…) and watched a couple of movies. Birds of Prey was mostly funny and not bad. I probably prefer watching villains than super heroes with super problems, haha! I might not have girls’ nights (especially since lockdown, but even before that I was a grumpy old spinster), but I liked the dynamics of the unwilling team.

And then there was Mine, directed by two Italians but shot in English (except the DVD was dubbed, sigh). Considering that I don’t like war or soldier movies, I was kind of intrigued and amused by this one. They guy had anger issues, but listening to the extras and the directors explaining how it’s a metaphor of his life, I guess it’s not bad at all.

So, enjoying a movie about a guy stuck on a mine is really interesting! I had both on my ToWatch list for months, and I’m glad I finally got to see them! Now, if I could get to those Roman movies… but the Roman vampire is temporarily shelved, so I might as well wait another year or three (those two movies have been on the ToWatch pile for years, not months)! ๐Ÿ˜€

If you follow me on Bookbub, you’ll have seen I recommended Space 1975, now available everywhere – I mean, besides the Kickstarter. Can’t publish each and every Amazon link, so I guess I’ll put the Goodreads link. Sigh.

If you’re looking for pre-made covers, Juan Padrรฒn is having a sale until the end of the month. He does mostly horror or thriller covers, but there are a few fantasy and sci-fi covers. If I didn’t have my plate full, I’d buy a couple just to write the story based on the cover, LOL! Make sure to check the pre-mades on page 1, page 2 and page 3! Only 55$ each, highly recommended! ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess that’s all for today! Have a great week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Nice word count so far this year.

    Glad you were able to get to a couple of the movies you’ve been meaning to watch for a while. My to watch list is almost as long as my to read list, so there’s a LOT I keep meaning to get to watching. Oh well, I’ll read and watch what I can when I can, and just hope I enjoy more than I don’t. That’s about the best I can do.

    • Same here! I’m still trudging on the old Kindle, but also printing out PDFs (I have the mobi file for the new Kindle) so I don’t see the end of the use of KK, LOL! But he’s 10 in August, I want it to last until then at least! ๐Ÿ˜€
      I’m also rewatching movies for inspiration – last night it was Streets of Fire, I still have the soundtrack on TAPE! Yeah, it’s that old (1984)! ๐Ÿ˜€
