This Week’s… Hmm…

There’s not much to report on the writing front this week, but it’s the complete inverse of next week.  I’m not sure what to write about save for the fact that methinks I won’t do nearly as many podcasts now.  I’ll still do the beginning-of-the-week thing, but podcasts will be the exception and not the rule.

So.  Writing goals.  I plan on having at least three chapters of “Love! in Bedlam” written by the end of the year.  I have something written on my calendar for this week… but that’s not gonna happen.  It’s not an irrational goal, it’s just that I’m learning that I like the liquid nature of writing.  Of course, knowing that I write a short story a week contradicts that a little, so I should explain.  Keep in mind, this makes perfect sense in my mind… and that’s what counts, ultimately.  I have written on my calendar that I have to write a chapter by Wednesday.  That’s not absurd, especially after writing “Tuesday’s Gone” in a night, basically.  Where things fall apart in my mind is that it feels rushed to me somehow.  Yet, looking at my three-chapters-by-year’s-end goal seems ok.  I feel that I could write more than that, if I trick myself, so we’ll see how that goes.  Why, then, does that chapter-by-Wednesday thing fail in my mind yet the short-story-weekly thing seems right?  Dunno.  Maybe because it’s part of a schedule to me now.

I realized last week that I potentially have three novels to publish next year.  “Love! in Bedlam”, these Monday posts of mine, and a short story collection full of my Friday things.  I also thought about worldwide plans and decided to look into French publishing when the time’s right.  Methinks they’d enjoy “Love! in Bedlam” the most.  Of course, I wouldn’t only look into France, but I’d try very hard to get published there.

I’ve been watching a lot of films lately since Disc Replay’s been good to me.  I thought about doing a year-end list of films, but I always thought those things were just people showing off.  Then, last night, I thought, “Instead of doing a favorites list and jerking yourself off, why not do a list of films you’ve seen this year that you’d like more folk to see?”  So that’s what I’ll do.  Convenient that the end of the year is on a Monday.

  1. Looking forward to that list of films.
    As for the writing, I can’t imagine what being a writer is like, I sometimes can write 3 posts in a day (like today) but then my posts are nothing out of the ordinary, just a little conversation with myself.

    • Writing is doing what you did today, but getting paid for it. Well, that and having fans. One becomes more important than the other the closer you are to starvation, though.

  2. I need to learn to make money doing what I do.

    • Worst-case scenario: you end up accidentally creating a “Lady or Not” dating service and make billions with witty profiles you write. Which leads to you forgetting who you are because you have legions of profiles in your brain-meats. Best-case scenario: everything minus that second sentence.
