Prolific Is As Prolific Does

You’ve probably noticed that I’m posting more this month than I did through the summer and early autumn.  There are actually a few reasons for this.

Earlier this year I was working on tight deadlines from spring up through September 15.  When I am on deadline, I post to my blog minimally. Not because I don’t love you guys, I do, I just get so wrapped up in writing that blogging is the furthest thing from my mind. Like many of you, I too find it frustrating when my favorite authors don’t post more. I happily keep up with my FM Writer’s Blog Tour and I’m working on bringing you plenty of great content in the months to come, including more guest blogs!

I actually took a three week vacation in September-October. So I was completely away from a computer for those three weeks. Anything you saw post to the blog during the time was pre-scheduled. Post scheduling is a wonderful thing. Vacation was a wonderful thing, too. My husband and I took a very relaxing, meandering trip across the United States (by car) and we had a fantastic time meeting up with friends and family along the way. It was nice not having a computer with us. That just goes to show you how much time I spend in front of this thing, writing.

I have a crap-load of projects in the works. Not just fiction projects, but non-fiction projects, article projects, web-projects. As a matter of fact I have so many writing projects (not blog related) going on at any given time that there are days I can’t see straight. I’m never bored and I don’t suffer from writer’s block unless I’m just outright exhausted. Being prolific, sadly, is about so much more than just sitting in front of the computer writing on my blog.

However, all of that said, right now I’m in a “finishing up” stage. I’m in between big projects and working on finishing up some little projects. This means a few things.

First, you’re likely going to see at least one more NF title from me before the end of the year. This one is, believe it or not, a relatively lengthy tome (for what it is) I’ve been working on for some time now. No more details. You’ll see what it is when it’s released. I think you’ll love it.  This is in addition to Keys of Ocat, mind you!  You will also likely see, in the very least, The Rite. One of the erotic horror shorts I’ve been working on. And finally, I am using Nano next month to try to complete Her Demon Lover, my new erotic romance novel, before the end  of the year.

So while I’m posting a lot now – watch for it to slow down the next few months again.  I am working with some 5PP Authors for more guest blogs. I’ll continue to keep up with the FM Merry Go Round Blog Tour and I’m going to start attempting to do more blog writing prompts with Crit Group Six. I think November the topic is “write a spec flash fiction” piece. Earlier this month it was “write a flash fable”.

Even then, don’t forget I still have a 27-36 hour a week part-time day job, I still do readings twice a week, I have water aerobics twice a week, plus DH and I are doing Thanksgiving this year and we are always slammed from solstice until the New Year.

So this is why posting to the blog goes in spurts.  🙂  Thanks so much for reading!
