Within the Silence is finally finished. Now to editing and some tweaking. Originally intended to be about 4,000 words, it took the bit in its teeth and wound up at 15,500 words. Now I can resume posting it to Live Journal, which hasn’t happened since October.
I’m thinking about buying a copy of Pages for my Mac. I use Scrivener for writing, but Pages seems to offer a lot of features that would be handy for developing a website, which I intend to do one of these days.
Now that Silence is largely out of the way, I’m going to take a short break from fiction and try to ram through a first draft of the book on using Smashwords. I already have a rough outline, an introduction, and lots of notes. The only problem is that I’ve become allergic to writing lengthy nonfiction–lengthy being anything that can’t be reduced to a blog post or essay. Goal? Get this sucker whipped into first draft shape by the end of the month.
Self-promotion? Me? Horrors. I’m actually considering posting a discount coupon for Privileged Lives on Twitter. Since I have all of eleven followers that isn’t going to shake the world unless I can think of some relevant hashtags. Any suggestions?
And don’t forget that you can still use the discount coupon for Privileged Lives until March 3. http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/129237 DM23K
