June Writing Updates:
Consistent at being Inconsistent
So, it has come to that point where I once again update you on what is going on with my writing and other projects. It’s been a long fought rode this month, especially since May went by so quickly and I only managed to push out one short story.
Here’s a list of things going on for the ongoing future.
-My story ‘Carter Hates Coming Home” is now available in Scary Snippets Family Edition and ‘No More’ is available in Scary Snippets Sibling Edition. Both can be found on Amazon and links are in my publication page.
-My short story for Coffin Blossoms was rejected. Which is fine. I’ll find another space for the fun loving elephant Georgie and his murderous ways.
Still have a short story to write for Blood and Ash. Not one hundred that I’m going to get this one in like I originally wanted.
And also need to write a short for It Comes From the Sea. Or I could just revise Stratton Hold to work with this submission. We will see what can be done. Crossing fingers here But that isn’t due until Oct. Which I just know is going to creep up on me.
The two final calls for Scary Snippets. Camp fire Edition and Virtual Edition that are due later this year. I’m going to try and get a head start for both of them in the coming months. If you are a horror writer and wish to submit head on over to the Scary Snippets FB page for further information.
Doing another around on my novella that is now named Beneath The Tracks. It’s only the tenth name change since first writing it. It’s fine. But its going through another round of editing and revisions. A final change and then hopefully off to an editor. Crossing my fingers here that I can actually talk the hubby into paying for one.
Stop The Raven is officially off the submission list and back into editing and revisions. After a year of rejections and some recent feedback that informed me there was more showing then telling I’m going to go through this story with a fine tooth comb and edit and revise where necessary. I’ll send updates when anything has changed on this story.
Finally finished The Shining by Stephen King and have decided to take a break from horror and thriller drama to enjoy something a bit more light-hearted.
Which is why I’m reading Opposite of Always by Justin A Reynolds.
Here’s the blurb:
When Jack and Kate meet at a party, he knows he’s falling – hard. Soon she’s meeting his best friends and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack.
But then Kate dies. And their story should end there.
Yet Kate’s death sends Jack back to the beginning, the moment they first meet, and Kate’s there again. Healthy, happy, and charming as ever. Jack isn’t sure if he’s losing his mind.
Still, if he has a chance to prevent Kate’s death, he’ll take it. Even if that means believing in time travel. However, Jack will learn that his actions are not without consequences. And when one choice turns deadly for someone else close to him, he has to figure out what he’s willing to do to save the people he loves.
I said this was light-hearted, right?
I might need to double check the meaning of those words. Lol I’m 50 pages in already and I’m squealing at the cuteness even though I know the waterworks are well on their way.
Current TBW (To be watched):
Ready or Not…the movie about the bride being hunted by the grooms family in a game of hide and seek. (I know I said no more horror but movies don’t count and this looks like so much fun.)
Scooby Doo…because it’s Scooby and what else am I going to watch?
Continue watching X-Files…I am on season 2 and while I love the series I find myself stopping and going because of all the other projects that I have going on at the moment.
So, anyways. There is everything that I have going on for the month of June even though we are half way through it already.
I hope you all are having a wonderful week. Stay safe! And until next time!
