Celebrate The Small Things - 8 May #CTST

It's Friday and time to Celebrate The Small Things (or big things) that happened this week.

On the Altar is finally out (Amazon US). My goal this year is to put out five new titles. So that's one down. I'm almost done proofing Blood and Beauty and Other Weird Tales, a collection of previously published stories that I plan to release next week. That will be two titles done. Now I have to get busy and write the other three.

For my current work in progress I'm trying a new outlining technique that I learned from Libbie Hawker's Take Off Your Pants. I think it will help me avoid getting stuck, which is what usually trips me up. So far the writing is chugging along. Haven't been blogging much lately. Sorry. I've been too busy writing.

Keep writing and keep hoping. What are you celebrating this week?

Want to join in the fun that is Celebrate The Small Things, sign up here. Thanks to the very talented Lexa Cain for hosting this hop.


  1. Congratulations! And another one on the way. You are productive.
    Missed you IWSG Wednesday, but I guess you were busy writing.

  2. Good luck with your goal! I purchased Take Off Your Pants recently and plan to read it soon.

  3. Congrats on getting On the Altar out. I know how much writing can cut into the blogging time. Have a good weekend.

  4. Congrats on your progress. I'm celebrating being a semi-finalist in a very big contest.
    As to outlining ... when I discovered DRAMATICA (the software and the theory, which is encompassed in a 300 page book; software is on sale currently for $111.00) three years ago, I truly felt I had found the holy grail. Now, having worked with it to plan several different story ideas, I still believe it 100%.

  5. Writing more is the best excuse for not being in the blogosphere. I wish I had more time to write. Good luck on the new release and upcoming titles!
