#Writing Wednesday - February 7th 2018

In case you missed yesterday's post: "Goodies For Grandmother" is now available in audio, narrated by Jenny Bacon. It's available to buy from Audible, Amazon, and iTunes. Purchase links are in the post I just linked to, along with links for the eBook and paperback versions, if you'd rather one of those.

I'm working with Jenny on a few more of my titles; Jenny has agreed to do the narration for four more of my stand alone stories. I'm pleased to be working with her again, because I love what she does with my books, and think she's a delight to work with in general.

I'm also pleased to once more be working with Danny Letham, James Watkins, JD Kelly, and Jerry Fischer. The first three - Danny, James, and JD - are each narrating another of my books, and Jerry is working on another two. I enjoyed working with all four of them in the past, so I was delighted when they accepted my latest offers, and look forward to seeing what they do with the books they've agreed to narrate for me this time.

Yet another of my stand alone stories is being produced by a narrator by the name of Andrew Pond. Andrew is a narrator I haven't worked with before, but I was pleased with his audition - obviously, or I wouldn't have sent him an offer - and have found him to be a delight to work with too.

It seems I've been pretty lucky with most of my narrators, since most of them are people I would willingly work with again. All those mentioned in this post come under that catagory for sure!

Anyway, as you can see - both from this post and my post from two weeks ago - I've managed to cross a few things off my list of writing goals for this year already, and am well on the way to being able to make sure I can check off another. I've even got a little actual writing done, though not as much as I'd have liked to. Still,I'm pleased with how much I did do, especially considering how much time has been spent on the "publisher tasks" in the past month.

How are your own writing goals going so far? Are you on track? Or are you struggling already?

If you're going through the struggle most writers do at some point right now, here are some reminders to get you through 'the struggle'. However, this next post may be more what you need if you're struggling with finding the time to write. Oh, and you're never going to have a 'normal' schedule if you're a writer, so you might as well stop trying. Above all, remember to be true to yourself.

Oh, and if you participated in STORYSTORM, here's a post storystorm post to help you figure out what's next. Speaking of which, if you participated, how did you do? Did you get your 30 story ideas?

Either way, if you can't find your voice when it comes to writing your story, here's how to write shamelessly.

You've been very busy and very productive. Doesn't it feel good? As for me, goals moving along. I didn't expect anything too fast so that's all good!

I'm glad your progress is good too. Yes, it feels good to get so many tasks completed already. Now I have a few less things to worry about fitting in to my day. If only I was doing as well with the non-writing related goals list...
