Working Wednesday: More Like Musings Wednesday.

I'm here for another instalment of Working Wednesday; where I update about my current work in progress, and whatever other projects I have going on.

But first of all, thanks to all those who stopped by my Memorable Mondays post - featuring free books by Kyra Lennon and Mary Pax. 

This week's post is a little different, because honestly, I haven't done much working since I last updated. 

Things at Curiosity Quills are ticking along nicely now, I feel as though I've gotten into my stride, and I have a nice little routine for my work. I'm really enjoying it there. 

Writing wise, I've done very little for a couple of reasons. Firstly, ITS.TOO.DAMN.HOT.TO.BE.SAT.AT.A.COMPUTER.ALL.DAY! Seriously, summer, can you go away now? I miss autumn. :(

Secondly, as the end of the school year approaches for both my boys, I've got a lot of activities with them going on - like Teddy Bear's picnics, sports days and school productions.

Though I have given more thought to re-writing the old story I mentioned last week, with the aim of publishing it as a serialization. I've redrafted the plot, and spruced up chapter one. Now I'm just weighing my options about how and when to publish it. 

My main question being, do I hold off publishing it until it's complete? Or get a certain amount ahead - say four chapters - and then begin publishing, writing as I go? 

It's something I'm going to give thought to over the summer ... 

Which leads me to taking a blogging break.

For the month of August, I'm going to take some time away from the computer, so I can enjoy the summer with my boys. Though, if I've agreed to do a blog tour, hop, cover reveal, etc. for you, I'll make sure that's scheduled in. 

When I return, I'm not entirely sure I should continue with my routine posts? Are people enjoying that I've got three distinct days for different post topics? Or did you enjoy my blog more when it was a little sporadic? 

I've been doing the regular posting schedule for a month now, and I'm not sure how it's working out. While I'm enjoying it, I'm wondering if the posts could be condensed into one or two a week? Plus, it's leaving me less time to visit all you guys, and I miss you all! <3 I want to know what's been going on in your worlds. 

So, I'd love your input on the topic? Would you like to see me continue with scheduled, themed, posts for a while longer? 

I'll be around for a few more weeks yet with the schedule, so until then, thanks for reading. 
If you're do inclined  don't forget to drop by my personal blog on Friday for Favourites Fridays ... And remember, on Monday I'll be taking part in the cover reveal for the second book in Carrie Butler's amazing New Adult Paranormal Romance series The Mark of Nexus, entitled Courage which you can mark as 'to be read' on Goodreads now!


  1. I think you've done a great job with your themed posts. I liked your blog before as well but you need to decide which is best for you. Enjoy your August blogging Vacay and you should probably try to finish your book before doing any publishing of it. Glad you're enjoying your time at CQ.

  2. I'm finding the hot weather hard too! I just can't find anywhere cool, and my head is refusing to come up with a couple of key scenes, so I'm stuck!

    Enjoy the summer with your kids, and the Teddy Bear's picnic. (When my kids were young enough for that kind of thing, I was working practically full-time and couldn't attend.)

  3. Enjoy your blogging break! I'm looking forward to the summer holidays with my girls but my writing routine will go out of the window until September (which means squeezing some in in the evenings). Love the sound of the teddy bear's picnic, by the way.

  4. I want it to be autumn too! I'm lucky we have air-conditioning or I'd be useless the entire summer. Definitely continue with the themed posts. They're a lot of fun. Also, finish the story before you publish anything. I've learned that lesson from the 13th Floor series. =P

  5. Someone else posted today about doing a serial - Hart Johnson. She'd be a good one to ask about writing as you go.
    If the regular schedule works for you, stay with it. You always have room within the post to be spontaneous.
    And I'm looking forward to cooler weather this fall as well!


Thank you for taking the time to read this entry, and comment. I really appreciate it.
