Writing habits

2 Comments

Yesterday I missed my daily post here on Karavansara. There’s nothing wrong or strange or worrying. I was simply so busy writing, I looked up at the clock and it was past midnight and I had missed my daily appointment.

I try and post at least once per day as a form of discipline. A writing habit, as they call ’em. Being able to write 500/1000 not-too-boring words per day is a way for me to organize myself, and to keep the words coming. Shift gears, change topic, tone, style, and relax.

And I find it interesting that my writing distracted me from my writing habit.

While I was otherwise engaged, Amazon released Sons of the Crow, that you can now buy here for (relatively) cheap.

I was also able to submit another story for an anthology – we’ll see how it goes. We keep exploring.
March has been a lean month for story submissions – too much work to do on other projects, that I am eager to close. I only posted three stories, one of which bounced back, and one that was accepted pending editing and things. Not bad, all things considered.

And also, I reached the enviable record of 25 positive reviews on Goodreads for my first novel, The Ministry of Thunder, with a solid 4.32/5 average. Not bad. Adding these to the 15 5-star reviews on various Amazons (10 only on Amazon.com), it makes quite a nice number of satisfied customers. And I am quite happy with it.

So, I missed a post, but I did a lot of other stuff.
Now, back to writing. Have a nice weekend.
