For the first time since week one, I’m doing this on time.  I feel slightly accomplished.

It’s been a pretty good week for productivity.  Let’s take a look:


Since the last post, I’ve only gotten three writing sessions in, but I managed to meet my goal of writing 2,000 words, for a total of 2,331. I’d like to get some more writing done tonight, but there is a lot going on, so we’ll see if that happens.  I feel like I’m closing in on the end of the novella I’m working on, but the story keeps spooling out in unexpected directions.  After edits, I’m not sure how long it’s going to be yet.

The other writing goal I met for this week was putting a short story through the Smashwords Meat grinder!  I tested the system using “Moving Mountains,” the story I had published this spring on the “Every Photo Tells” Podcast.  You can still listen to the story for free on their site, or at the archive on  The story is available as a pay-what-you-want download HERE.  I know I need to fix some things, but I’d love to get some feedback on my mistakes so far.


This week I recorded the story reading for the next episode, and an interview to be aired in November, during the great NaNoWriMo crunch.  I have a lot left to do to get the episode up, though, and it might show up on Saturday instead of Friday.  I’m very proud of the interview in this one, so I’m going to get back to work on it.

Next Week:

I’m helping out with a wedding this weekend, so that’ll be taking up a lot of my time, plus finishing the episode.  But I’ll get that episode out, and churn out another 2,000 words of rough draft.

Or will I?  Come back next week!
