Wednesday Weekly Roundup

Last week I wrote less than 7K, but I sorta kinda wrapped up the project and then I had to go through it, so no time to write anything else. And I decided that a short story should be incorporated in one of the novels, so I’m finishing this week.

Since I’m already at 26K this year, I’m not worried. I’m worldbuilding, so I need to go back and check I didn’t contraddict myself! 🙂 I hope to finish this week, and then I have a couple of shorts for anthologies that I’m itching to write before starting the next project (that I already started in short form, but it’s clearly the start of a novel, haha!).

I gave up the idea of a paperback of SKYBAND, because my computer crashes midway. When one must prepare a 330+ pages PDF with JPGs at 300dpi, one probably needs a younger computer or some other formatting program, LOL!

So, maybe in a few years. Meanwhile I ordered all my latest paperbacks, so I can post them here and brag a little. A friend of mine puts them in a pile and shows how tall it is next to him, so I might end up doing that – if someone bothers to come over and take the picture, that is.

Oh, wait, I have a digital camera, and it has the timer… I can probably do it on my own! 😉 I’ll decide when I get the last books. The pile of 11 years of paperbacks should be almost as tall as me (and I’m 1,79m or 5’8”) – almost! 🙂

I keep seeing videos of people thrown out of airplanes because they don’t want to wear masks, and I dread the moment I’ll have to take one again. I couldn’t catch Matrix Resurrections in English in Rome, so I thought “Maybe I should fly to London for a weekend”, like I do for Da Muse since his movies don’t come out in Italy, but then I saw the umpteenth crazy woman thrown out of a flight and went “Meh… maybe not. I’ll get the DVD.”

Eventually. Considering that I ordered one back in October, it was lost in the mail and resent at the beginning of December and I’m still waiting for it… sigh! Anyhow, I guess that’s all for today… have a great week!

    Great news about the book progress. Sorry about the DVD frustrations though… Hope that missing one shows up. Don’t blame you for being reluctant to deal with how things are with flying right now.

    I managed to get that article written that I needed to work on, but between craft projects, having a third dog for about 24 hours (puppy-sitting for my Mam) and not feeling 100%, I didn’t get to any more writing-related stuff than that.


    • I got the paperbacks, but still no DVD. I guess I’ll have to buy it again at some point…
      Still pondering about trips abroad. I’m kind of sick to spend my paid leave at home! 😉
      Good job on everything non-writerly. Yes, we’re writers, but that’s not the only thing we do!

        I can understand your reluctance to spend your paid leave at home again this year. I hope that doesn’t have to happen. It’s a tricky thing though… Good luck deciding between the rock and the hard place, if you know what I mean.

        Yes, there are other things that we want or need to do besides writing, including other creative things. Sometimes one thing has to happen a bit less to make room for the other things. In theory it all balances out in the end though.
