Happy Sunday! I hope everyone enjoyed the Cinco de Mayo celebration yesterday and/or the Kentucky Derby! I didn't do much celebrating as I spend the day writing. Gasp! I actually sat my behind and did some work!
I can't say that I got an overwhelming amount of writing done since my last post, but it's enough that I don't feel I wasted the last few days. I got somewhere around 2k on PARADIGM. I have been focused on getting my horror anthology out soon (in time for a festival I am attending in June), so that's been top priority this past week. While I have the collection pretty much done (since they are previously published), I did want to add one new story to the mix and so far I've gotten close to 2k down. I hope to finish it up by tomorrow.
Since I don't have any specific word counts as part of my ROW80 goal, I am keeping up with my goal to just write everyday. I only hope it's enough to get me on track will all my deadlines!
Yesterday, I worked on the cover for my anthology. I'm trying to keep my overhead low, so I decided to tackle the cover myself for this project. Let me know what you guys think! If you can't make out the tagline, it reads, "a collection of stories in the tradition of southern gothic horror." I decided it needed to be a southern gothic theme, since all my main characters are women and each story takes place in the south. I have no idea how all the shorts I've written these last couple of years end up with a southern backdrop, but it is what it is...
Gotta get back to writing! Hope you have a great writing week fellow ROW80'ers and y'all come back now, ya hear!
