Wednesday Weekly Roundup


Last chance to get this awesome bundle! It ends soon, so get it right now! And if you don’t have enough, there’s also The 2021 Adventure SF Bundle, curated by bestselling author Kevin J. Anderson as well as The Many Worlds of Weird Fiction Bundle, curated by Robert Jeschonek. And if you’re a writer, there’s still time for The 2021 NaNoWriMo Writing Tools Bundle, curated by Kevin J. Anderson – all of these make also for great gifts for your loved ones who read a lot (or if you have a loved one who is a writer)! šŸ˜€

Last week I wrote more thatn 13K on the latest project. I hope to finish a first draft this week, so I can go through it next week, when I won’t be writing much because I’ll be traveling. I’m bringing the writing computer and hope to write to related short stories, but we’ll see. Meanwhile Mighty Editor will be busy working for me so you can get that last title for the Holidays – another Themed Collection.

This new project will probably be finished by the end of the year, so hopefully it will see publication at the beginning of 2022 – February at the latest. I still have to book the Mighty Editor for next year and she might already be full in January.

Last week I had 24hours in which I hoped to get rid of DayJob by February 2022, but unfortunately the hope vanished quickly. I’m still hoping to be able to get rid of it by 2023, and I know time will fly even if it seems to crawl on. Like, we’re already at the end of November, tomorrow it’s Thanksgiving for my American friends, where did this year go?

I’m glad it’s almost over, though. I may have mentioned it was worse than last year for me, so I’m glad it’s behind. Next week I’m off through Northern Italy to relax in a hotel for a few days. I miss traveling, but at the same time, seeing all those videos of people with or without masks getting kicked off planes and so on, as well as having to wear a mask on the train… sheesh!

Also, the travel agent in my suburb closed after Covid. So we’ll see. I can book a flight or a hotel from home, but I wanted to explore more of Europe with tour groups, so we’ll see. Maybe I’ll have to stay put until 2023 anyway, LOL! Have a great week!

    Sorry you missed the chance to get rid of dayjob a bit early. But, hey, 2023 will be here before you know it. Like you said, it’s already almost the end of 2021. I’ll be kind of glad to see the back of this year myself to be honest, since 2021 has so far not delivered on its promises of being a better year.

    Hope you enjoy your trip next week, despite the current situation. Be careful out there.

    I managed to write two 500 word stories, organize a new narrator for the poetry collection where the original narrator for it disappeared, start working on getting a narrator organized for the story I published last month, and – as you already know, since you sorted the cover for it for me (thanks for that, by the way) – format the manuscript for the story I plan to publish early next month. A very productive week, I think.

    • I know, two years will fly, but I was a little bummed at first! It was a pleasure working on your cover, a lot less fun working on another project, but hopefully I’ll be done with it tonight and tomorrow I can concentrate on packing and do the last things before taking that train. I need to send stuff to Mighty Editor and prepare the newsletter, since I’ll be back when it’s already sent – although I’ll bring the writing computer and could do it on hotel Wi-Fi, but well… I’d rather be writing instead, LOL!

    I can see why you would be. Hang in there though… We get closer to that date each day.

    Glad you enjoyed working on the cover. I agree: get what you can done ahead of time, and then you can just enjoy your trip and some writing time while you’re away. Have fun, and stay safe.
