Go For Launch #4: (WO)MAN ON FIRE

The Good News: I already got some feedback and ideas from a lovely and talented member of my writing group which is appropriately named with a NYC + “Book” pun that isn’t the sordid “Booklyn”.

To be fair, the “joke” basically writes itself.

The Bad News: My already shall-we-say’interesting’ job has me editing and formatting a 100+ page document that’s a hugely massive deal for the capital-P Project.

So for the past week, I have barely had time to breathe, think, decide what to have for lunch, or think about my writing and the next week isn’t looking much saner.

Actually, that’s not true, I’ve been thinking a little about the second series now that the first is all the way written out.

This is what I wrote this week:

“You- you really brought a gun on our date?” he squeaked.
She nodded, “Yes, now hush, or you’ll give away our position.”

dun-Dunn-DUNNN! What does it mean? Stay tuned!

The Good News (but for you this time): At the end of the month, I’m opening up a Discord Server for my beta readers – there’s still time to sign up!

Read the story early, have a say in the story, maybe free stuff if I ever get rich and famous at the same time!

Interested? Leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail at November O’Malley (at) gmail (dot) com!

Where did this week go?

Common answers include “fell down a wormhole”, “lost in the Twilight Zone, and “the entire plot of The Cursed Child happened”

I feel like I fell asleep at my keyboard (again) in the wee hours of Sunday morning, satisfied that I had somehow slogged through another chapter of editing with the promise of energy drinks and dread to meet me in the morning only to awake in the depths of a Thursday I desperately wished was a Friday.

I don’t remember the last time I looked at inter_linked, only that it was definitely yesterday and also a week ago.

So there isn’t much to talk about this week.

I worked a little on my marketing plan, but I took a mini-vacation from the book.

You know, whether I wanted to or not.
