A Really Fun Day…
I did my first two webinars today, about three hours total between them. I had fun and I hope they were interesting for others listening in and asking questions. One was on selling short fiction and the other on writing space opera.
Got up around nine-thirty because I had to be live on camera at 11 a.m. Webinars lasted until 2:15 and then the session of the coast workshop started at 2:30.
By 4:30 I had lunch and I was home and packing boxes and such. Then a nap and back to the office for the evening workshop session at 7 p.m. Home after buying dinner at the store to do email.
Then Kris and I did some planning on this workshop to make it work better, then I finally got to writing around 1 a.m. Interesting to me was that I didn’t want to go over and sit down. I was tired and grumpy. But I did it anyway and as soon as my butt hit the chair, I was fine.
I grabbed my half-title sheets to look for half-titles to trigger me. Found a half-title that was “… Old Guard.”
I figured that was enough, typed it in, and started with the first line of Marble Grant staring at a homeless man. And I was off.
Went back and put in “A Marble Grant Story” under the title and went back to typing.
I decided that if I stopped on this one and got out of the chair, I might not return, so I just kept on typing. No break, which is very unusual for me. But I didn’t want to take a chance.
So at 2:30 a.m. I was done with 2,700 words.
I changed the title to “Old Memories” which fit a ton better.
