June was a rough one in so many ways. But since this post is about writing, let’s stick to that, shall we?
I was not nearly as productive as I’d hoped to be. Lately, I never am. I had planned out six Rerun Junkie posts I wanted to write and I managed to get three of them done. I can’t speak to the quality of them, but I know at least one of them is kind of garbage and will need some work if I’ll ever let it see the light of day.
I’d also hoped to get ahead on Book ’em, Danno, get at least one episode done. That didn’t happen either. Oh, I got some podcasting done, just not this particular podcast.
I’m once again looking to change gears, trying to find one that I can groove on. I’ve been thinking a lot about an idea for a story that I’ve had for a while called Early Snow. Yes, I know it’s summer, but a blizzard tale is on my mind. It’s one of those ideas that I jotted down ages ago and have just added bits and pieces to as its rolled around in my brain, occasionally resurfacing. I think there’s enough meat to it now that I can put it on paper and since I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately, I’d say the time is right.
I think I’m going to do it as at least a page a day. That keeps the pressure low and the progress constant. I just want to be writing something. I don’t know if it will be a novella or a novel, but I think I can be done with it before NaNo.
Famous last words.
Speaking of lasts, the penultimate episode of Murderville: The Coldest Case goes live on July 14th. But just because it’s almost over doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy it. $1 an episode lets you read. $2 an episode gets you a swell bonus every other month. So become a patron and catch up on the case.
Book ’em, Danno returns from hiatus at the end of the month. Season one is done, season two is about to begin. How many times will Steve say those blessed words? Well, the only way to find out is to watch the show. Or listen to my podcast and I’ll eventually tell you.
