To-Do Progress

At the start of the month I made myself a To-Do List, and I wanted to check in now as the month is coming to an end to see how I’ve managed.

  • Research Kindle self-publishing ongoing
  • Write the next Spellbound novella (probably Silk & Steel) ongoing (Damask & Deception)
  • Edit Bowstrings & Velvet
  • Edit Shadows & Lace
  • Edit and publish on Wattpad (later Kindle) A Midsummer Night’s Kiss ongoing
  • Work out the details of a few more Spellbound ideas (find a story for Baudwin) ongoing (D&D is Baudwin’s story)
  • Write the sequel to A White Rose
  • Re-make covers into Kindle sizing (maybe change cover images?) Complete!
  • Research marketing of self-published books ongoing

I’ve just started putting the latest Spellbound novella on Wattpad, titled Damask & Deception. I also changed the colour scheme of the series to a black bar at the bottom, with a golden ampersand in the titles and golden author name. Bowstrings & Velvet also got a new cover image.

A lot of the To-Do list items will be on an ongoing basis. There’s a lot of research to figure out the best strategy for a Kindle release. I do need to get started on the editing of the novellas though, or I’ll never have anything to put on Kindle!

So much to do, so little time!

July To Do List

I’m trying to get (somewhat) organised, so I thought I might make myself a list of what I need to do this month to hopefully help. The chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sometimes makes it difficult to focus on things, and remember things, so having it in list form sometimes helps.

  • Revise as many chapters as possible.
  • Sort through Shutterstock account and buy stock photos.
  • Buy paint and paint brushes.
  • Paint living room.
  • Arrange Wattpad account.
  • Edit Wattpad story for publishing in July or August.
  • Prepare guest room for family visit on 20-28 July.
  • Participate in #WIPJoy on Twitter.

What do you have to get done during July?
