Blog sorceress series

I’m trying to determine how to keep track

I started writing my Sorceress world at long last, around the end of December I believe. Well, as I’ve mentioned, I am working on two different versions. A 1st POV and a 3rd POV. Well, usually I keep track of one book in a widget in sidebar, or footer. Depending on the theme I use for WordPress.

But this has two versions. Of the same book. So . . . I’m debating making a page for it where it’s similar to a method I’ve done before on here. Still have the blog posts up somewhere, but I don’t recall the books I did that with. Only to change it up a bit by using the 2 columns I can do now with the WordPress block system. So I can keep track of the days, the word counts, and the version.

If you follow my Facebook or Instagram you’ll see the images/posts about word counts. I am doing them weekly. I tried to do daily and realize that’s a lot for me to keep up with, plus it fills up my feed with nothing but word count posts. It still will doing it weekly, but at least it’s not overkill. Dunno, not enjoying posting as often anymore. On here I could, but still you see how often I do. And that’s more that I don’t wanna take the time to compose these.

Everything I use goes slow and doesn’t happen instantly, which then adds time to me doing it, and then ends up making me not want to spend the time and effort when I use the energy for life. Life being two weeks ago, we had to call 911 for my mom so they could take her in, to see why she kept falling down/passing out. She was in the hospital overnight, and I spent my time trying to clean up a lot of stuff I don’t usually have time to address. Then she came home, and again, I tried to clean up her room for her, as much as I could given what little time and energy I had.

It takes its toll.

So when I have say, 10 energy points per day, I spend those on family, dogs, cooking, cleaning, and then my writing, Meagan and Jeanie, exercise, self-care, edits, and crash in bed. If I have an extra bit, I chat with my friends in Discord. And an extra point is usually when I post o na social network. Then I rebuild them over the weekend and try to relax as much as I can.

Rinse and repeat. I apologize to anyone who follows any social network of mine, or this site, or my newsletter and wants more of me right now. Trust me, if I could I’d be here. I’m not out there partying it up. I’m tending family and self. Also trying still to get work done.

Think I’m going to try to put a hold on the box sets. If you crave a certain series in a box set? Feel free to contact me and ask. If I get people asking, even one person? I’ll take the time to get a box set out on digital. Otherwise I’ll wait and see if people even bother to purchase the DI box set, and if so continue with those. I’m still working on getting all my paperbacks back up for sale, but through Lulu.

What was I gonna say. Totally forgot my train of thought, lol.

But, back to the writing. Oh! I remember. I am going to rearrange a bunch of the work on my site, and push back the Dragon’s Dawn series after all. With my long break from publishing, that went longer than I planned, I’m gonna push out a few stories ahead of that series. That way I can get myself back into the steady rhythm of publishing. Expect to see my books list of what’s being edited next to get rearranged.

Alllllsso, back to the writing. If you have an idea of how to track both versions of the Sorceress story, lemme know down in the comments. I’m leaning to the columned solid blog post idea. May be long with a ton of different updates, but I think having too many all over could make a mess. On my site, for people to find later, and whatever else.

Right now I need to save for a new laptop so that goal is listed on there. Before my laptop explodes in my face, lol.
