Scheduling Conflicts

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on January 29, 2013 by Angela Roquet

I should be writing right now… on book 3 in my series. There’s just a lot of distractions lately. Plus, the flu epidemic in my household has thrown off Xav’s sleep schedule, so my night time writing sessions are being spent in the living room, with my husband snoring on the sofa next to me and Disney movies on the television. Oh, and Xav’s figured out how to deconstruct his playpen, by pulling the Velcro loose from the floor mat, so that’s kind of split my attention too. I really hope I can get him back to dozing off around 8 or so. Then I can type in peace for a few hours, preferably from the comfort of my magically awesome office. Speaking of my office, check out this crazy fantastic owl my mom gave me for Christmas. I’m going to hang it from the ceiling next to my desk.

Well, I’m supposed to have the first half of this novel off to a couple of my Beta readers by the end of the week, so back to Limbo City I go. I’ll be posting again soon though. Chelsea’s Paranormal Addicts, a very kick-ass book review blog, will be featuring an interview with me soon! I’ll be sure to post links all over the place, once it’s up on their site. Also, I’ll be eating brains in April…

Good Morning and Good Night

So, I haven’t been to sleep yet. I just spent the witching hours writing a heap of OCD lists (groceries, what I’m going to plant in my garden in the spring, an updated budget, all the things I’m going to do with my spare time now that I’m through with college, a to-do list for today, and Monday… and Tuesday, ect.). I also cruised around the interwebs checking out random book review blogs and vlogs, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m going to fancy up my Youtube channel and start incorporating videos into the blog… that I don’t update very much as it is, but I plan to change that now that school’s out. Seriously, I think I have enough spare time coming my way that I could plot out a pretty detailed plan for world domination by next summer. You know, if I was into that sort of thing.
I think my lack of sleep is due to excitement and uncertainty. My schedule is about to get a massive makeover, and I’m not sure how it’s all going to play out just yet. I’m optimistic though. I intend to write 10,000 words a week, though Guide week will probably throw a wrench into that equation. So we’ll say 5,000 that week. Which calculates out to roughly 35,000 words a month. If I count what I already have typed, I’ll have book 3 in my series completed by the end of February. Then I’ll send it off to my editors (my lovely seester and my awesome comp II professor, and maybe my friend Brad if he’ll forgive me for not getting that advanced copy of book 2 to him…), and then I’ll do revisions and have it published by the first of April. That’s the projected timeline anyway.
I’m being really ambitious and planning on doing more extensive networking with the book review blogger community too. Maybe I’ll see about setting up a blog tour. There’s lots of fun stuff going on here on the net, and I’m a little surprised that I’ve fallen behind technologically. I was learning html and how to code my own website 12 years ago, this shouldn’t be an issue. The goal is to post a video book review on Mondays, and then to post a regular blog or video on writing, publishing, or life in general on Thursdays. I imagine this is all going to end up getting worked into a New Year’s resolution, since I still have gifts to wrap and Christmas cards to make. Yeah, I’m making Christmas cards this year. I’m feeling crafty. Let’s hope it sticks.
