I joined Minds. You can see my posts here. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do with it, aside from reblogging some nice pictures and joining a couple writing groups. I would like to be a bit more active, but frankly I’ve been swamped at work and have had to work through my lunch hour all week just to stay on top of the workload. By the time I get home, I just want to zone out – which means less time for personal stuff (like Minds).
I’m also trying to finish up the NanoWrimo story I started, and it’s going to be about 90k words or so at the pace I’m going. I’m at 74k right now, so getting there…I’m really in a ‘writing mood’ now so I’m pretty focused on this, another reason I haven’t been active on Minds.
As for my main novel, I’m taking a little break before I go through it one last time and then send it off to an editor – which means I’m going to have to screen for editors soon. I’ve looked at them in the past, but I know I’ll have to pick one sooner rather than later. Editors can be busy people with schedules that fill up quickly, so I’ll probably narrow it down by the middle of next month, even if I don’t have the story scheduled to read until summer.
I’ll hopefully be posting an actual ‘writing tip’ blog next time, so wish me luck on having time/energy for that…
