Wednesday Weekly Roundup

Last week I wrote a 5K story that was done by Thursday, and spent the rest of the week either drawing or pondering the next story. I should write a dystopia, but the current world events are so bleak, that it can only be something with a happy ending! πŸ˜‰ Possibly something that helps me overcome this sense of dread (although I’m in a “lucky” country – think Ukraine, Syria, Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan or any other country affected by war or climate change or Earth trying to shake us off her crust). We’re not doomed to fail! πŸ™‚

So I’ll probably use my Future Earth Chronicles scenario, a little closer to the apocalypse and with no mention to Rainbow Towns, aliens or vampires. Maybe I’ll write a batch and will publish another volume of shorts. At the moment I’m tinkering with two ideas, but I’m sure I can come up with more.

I’m getting back to reading on Kindle, and hopefully I’ll be able to revew what I’m reading from now on! I didn’t have a favorite story in Space Opera Digest 2022: Have Ship, Will Travel but they were all good and helped me with another story/mini-series I’m pondering. So this is definitely the year of reading fiction to improve my fiction skills! πŸ™‚

Also, if you’ve been wondering about taking online classes from WMG (which I do pretty often), here’s someone who breaks them down for you. I have taken only two in the list he mentions, but I’ve taken others, and will take more in the future. And there’s the free class for Kickstarter if you want to try them.

Even though I have the stories I wrote at the end of last year to proofread next week, I’m afraid I won’t publish anything in the first six months of the year. I decided I better concentrate on writing instead, but this means the second half of the year might have plenty of new books for you to enjoy and meanwhile you can catch up with the old stuff (make a Barbathon, like Tori calls them)! πŸ™‚

Know that I’m still tinkering with covers and still thinking of publishing more stuff, but this might be a leap year in publication and I’ll restart again next year – possibly. Because I don’t have full projects in mind yet, but I might start to publish standalone books at the end of this year.

Meanwhile I better go back to reading and writing as much as I can! My yearly worldcount has probably reached 50K by now, and I shall keep trudging forward! Have a great week!

    Might need that delay in you publishing new stuff to get to where I can do that Barbathon I’ve been meaning to do to catch up with last year’s books. LOL!

    On one of the calls I help out with for the ACB community, we come up with a daily question. Today it was my turn. My question was appropriate for your post, I think, so I’ll share it here: “Planet Earth is about to be destroyed, and you have to evacuate. Which planet, or moon, in our solar system would you choose to evacuate to?”


    • LOL!
      As for the answer to that question, if only Kol-ian had taken me away from Earth before the timelines diverged… Or our brothers from space finally showed up to whip us back into shape…
      Meanwhile I shall take refuge in those wondrous worlds of my imagination! 😁
      See you there (in the imaginary worlds of our own creation, I mean. They might not be shared yet, but they’re there for us!)! 😘
