#42 Daily Writing Journal -Bad Cold so in bed, Schedule for editing and publishing my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica!

Bad Cold so in bed


This is my third cold in the three weeks, so I'm not sure why I'm rundown. Okay, I know but three bad colds? This is the worst. Anyway, I'm drinking hot fluids and staying in bed. The sore throat is very sore. I'm just really irritable at the moment.

Progress on editing: Schedule for editing and publishing my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica

This lesson is a lot more tedious and boring than the first. I'm not really sure what I'm doing but I'm sure at some point it will make sense. It's about promises made to the reader  and I'm making a note as I go along.

I'm going to work as much as I can to keep within the time schedule.

Rough Schedule 

  • Lessons 1 to 8 are about learning to  diagnose and triage a novel. Due completion 23rd March 2019
  • Lesssons 9 to 17 is about major novel surgery - what ever that is. Due completion 25th May 2019
  • Lessons 18 - 22 is the actual rewrite and revising the novel Due completion 30th June 2019
  • My time: Working alone on the manuscript - Due 31st July 2019
  • Getting it to the copyeditor and proofreader By mid August  2019
  • Publication by 30th September 2019 

It may be quicker or slower who knows. I've never done this before so I feel a bit weird putting dates down. Normally I just keeping on working until I'm done.  Doing this course for the first time, I have no idea if this is possible or not. But I'll adjust as I go on.

Novel Action Plan

I work on the novel for at least an hour a day.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Up Date on Happenings: Newly Single & 17% pay raise.

Hey Everyone, So update since my last entry. Well I had a brief fling with Mr Sexy Guy and decided he wasn't the one for me. He was cool but I learned the difference between lust, chemistry and personality. It just didn't tango for me. I'm still grossly overweight, well, fat. I don't think there is anything wrong with being called fat. I am fat. I need to lose weight but that means getting organised and stop eating delicious food. Then again my knees are hurting me and joints feel the ache. I also haven't been to the gym in three months despite paying for it. But when I do, I normally go for the sauna, hot tub and   steam room session. I've thought of cancelling the exorbitant membership but in the climate apart from bills it's the one thing that is just for me...that when I use it. Work is fine, managed to get a 17% pay raise. A big thanks to my boss who also pushed for it. It's good to work for people who support you in that matter. I think tha
