After I write this post, I'm signing off. I'll be back on Monday, and will write yet another blog post, but this weekend is the hard-core write fest. I have to reach a goal of at least 7,000 words to stay on track for the 21st release date. How will I do this?
I have already recorded and planned out each chapter for my goal in Scrivener, and have written synopses of every chapter in the notes column. If I spend some of tonight, then most of the day on Saturday and Sunday working, I should be able to reach my goal.
So the weekend marathon begins.
Before I sign off, though, I thought I'd provide some articles I read this week that keep me inspired:
1. Writing on the iPad - Jason Snell writes about why he is writing using the iPad. I suppose I might if I had an iPad.
3. Why I Self Publish - Melissa Leong or "Wynne Channing" sold her teen vampire novel through self-publishing it first. Read her story.
4. Self Publish? - Emily Kaiser gives us five benefits and three drawbacks to self-publishing a novel.
5. Psychology of Self Publishing - Douglas Eby writes about his self publishing experience, especially the psychological side of it.
