The summer is flying by. School here starts in mid August, which might mean more writing time for me. Unfortunately, it also means I’ll be doing a lot more chauffeuring around as my kids and hubby have odd schedules.
This won’t be easy.
This week’s writing update will sound much like the previous ones…much time spent on writing-related stuff, but not as much time spent actually writing. I wanted to write 5-6 days a week, but it’s more like 3-4. I gave up on Camp NaNoWriMo, which doesn’t bother me too much… I do want to finish that story, but there is no deadline for it, so it doesn’t matter how long I put it off. My energy needs to be on The Cities of Luna for now.
As for those writing-related things, I’m having SO much fun with interviews! Since we’ve moved, I have a plethora of local writers to network with. I’m usually able to meet with them in person, and do a little mini one-question video interview. Here’s one I did today with Shannon Lawrence, whose interview will go up this Friday.
I have all the back stories in The Cities of Luna up under my own name now. I’m looking forward to putting them together in a collection late this fall, and having that available in paperback as well as e-format.
I have a lot of work ahead of me.
If you’re anything like me, the summer just flew by. The Cities of Luna sounds fascinating. Are those short stories? Fantasy? Sci-fi? I love the title of the series.
Good luck with your writing, AmyBeth!
Short (5k) SciFi about life on the moon!
Having a lot to do is both a boon and a curse. Hopefully you will be seeing the boon side of things sooner than later…
That said… loved the interview, and loved your hair done that way too! 🙂
Thanks! Whenever I’m out and about in my author persona, I try to make a point to have my hair “up with something silvery.” It makes me more recognizable, like when I’m meeting an interviewee in a crowded venue, or when someone can’t remember my name but they can say “You know… the writer with her hair up in braids with the stuff…”
Sounds like a good plan!
“Hair up in braids with the stuff” sounds like something someone might have ordered in my waitressing days…
Love the interview, and the perspective.
I have a couple of your Luna stories, but haven’t yet had the time to actually read them….maybe I’ll make it MY goal to do that before your collection comes out, so I can be suitably excited! =)
And, as far as aliens, I like mine with green blood and pointed ears…just sayin’!
