March Write-Day: The New Routine is Up and Running

We have reached another month, and that means that, on this first Friday, it’s time for a writing update.

Notice the new title card? I kind of like the idea of switching up the photo each month, as a sort of thematic gesture. Continue reading March Write-Day: The New Routine is Up and Running

Marketing Your Novel: 2019 Goals

I know we’re already a month a and a half into the year, but I haven’t yet laid out my book marketing plans. I needed some time to mull over what my real goals were and how I can actually reach them.

Answering the first question is easy: Sell. More. Books. As for the second question, well, let’s discuss. Continue reading Marketing Your Novel: 2019 Goals

February Write-Day: Now We’re Doing This Monthly

In my last Friday Write-Day post two weeks ago, I mentioned how I might change up the format of this once-weekly post to both challenge myself and provide some more unique content on RSPC.

I thought about a bi-weekly update for about a minute, until I realized that nothing outside of paychecks are scheduled fortnightly, and scheduling my blog in that manner would be ridiculous.

So now it’s monthly. On the first Friday of each month, I’ll update ya’ll on my writing progress from the previous month and talk about my goals for the new month. I’ll have a new title card for this monthly series next month. Continue reading February Write-Day: Now We’re Doing This Monthly

2018 Numberbrag and 2019 Plans

In case there’s anyone who has yet to notice, 2018 is over, and that means 2019 is full of hope and promise… or maybe cynicism, depending on your outlook.

Before I get into my own plans for 2019, I’d like to stick to my now-annual tradition of looking back at our stats here on RSPC for 2018.

Time for some humble number bragging, a.k.a. the Numberbrag! Continue reading 2018 Numberbrag and 2019 Plans

Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!

Stay-at-home parenting is hard. Well, it’s not difficult, but it is time-consuming and frustrating.

It’s also fulfilling. These last two weeks have flown by. Things that happened a week ago already feel distant, because my days have been non-stop. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Vacation is almost Over!

Friday Write-Day: Trying to be Patient

This has been a strange week in terms of my writing and publishing goals. While stay-at-home dad-ing, I’ve had little to no time to actually write much, but that’s not really the issue.

I find myself growing increasingly impatient with my writing and publishing progress. Consider this post my attempt to reset myself. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Trying to be Patient

Friday Write-Day: Gearing Up to Slow Down

Man, my two-week stay-at-home-dad-cation cannot come fast enough.

Between work, the usual holiday stresses, and… mostly work, I’m really looking forward to just sitting at home with Nugget. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: Gearing Up to Slow Down

Friday Write-Day: NaNo Came and Went

Welp, November is over. National Novel Writing Month sped by me, but that’s been true of every month since my son was born.

I had a lofty goal of writing 20,000 words on Dad-Life Time, but NaNoWriMo goals are always lofty, right?

Anyway, it’s time I rethink how I approach my writing schedule and goals. Continue reading Friday Write-Day: NaNo Came and Went

Friday Write-Day: Movement

Happy Friday. Have a YouTube:

You’re welcome. It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard new Hozier music, but maybe it’s time for a sequel to my review of his first album. That was way back in December 2014… nearly four years ago!

Aaahh, memories. Onto the writing!
