November 2018 Wrap Up & December 2018 Goals

Hey Guys,

So Last month I shared with you a list of goals that I made for myself for the month on November. Here’s how I did…

1. Finish drafting The Five Sister’s Book Two – Failed
2. Start drafting Thicker Than Water Book One – Succeeded
3. Get ISBN for The Hood Diaries Book One – Failed
4. Get To work ON TIME!!!! (I seem to have an issue getting up in the AM) – Succeeded
5. Plot The Hood Diaries Book Two – I completed this but I will probably go back over it
6. (Personal Sales Goal) – Succeeded and I’m proud of it.

I think I did good considering I completed four of the six goals. However, I did add three more to the list later on and only completed one, so…

Well here are the goals for December. Here’s hoping I do better.

1. Look for office space.
2. Finish drafting Thicker Than Water Book One
3. Post a video to Journey To Full Time Writer YouTube channel
4. Post a video to Totally Random Me YouTube channel
5.Personal Sales Goal
6. Get to work on time (A daily struggle)
7. Personal goal
8. Go to the doctor

Wish me luck. I’ll be back next month.h

Journey To Full-Time Writer – So Many Projects So Little Time

39389242_1087111758133198_5591980044240027648_n

So, I saw this meme on Facebook and realized that it is currently my life. I’m putting out one book, editing another, writing the next and plotting a fourth. I’ve been told not to pile too much on my plate but… that’s easier said than done.

I feel like I have to put out more to be able to one day enjoy my life as a full-time writer. At this point taking my time and waiting between projects isn’t going to put me any closer to being able to quit my full-time job and shout from the rooftops that I am a full-time writer.

Any other writers out there going through the same thing? Let me know and maybe we can motivate each other. I’m going to go now and do some writing.

Journey To Full-Time Writer – TFS – Book One – Chapter Four

Hey guys,

I’m just here to give you guys a quick update. I am currently formatting chapter four in book one to The Five Sisters. I really have to get cracking with this so that I can re-release this book and move onto my second book.

On another note… I wanted to talk to you guys about something. If you are subscribed to my blog then you are aware that I post three blogs a week, my journey blog, a book discussion and short stories.

Writing these short stories are time consuming and it’s taking a lot out of the time I can spend working on my books and I can’t wait until the last one I have planned is uploaded.

Now, I was going to replace the short stories with movie reviews, but I’m not sure that is something that I want to do. As I said, keeping this blog alive is time consuming. I don’t want to leave you guys hanging if three blog posts a week is something that you want from me, so I need some feedback. If you guys can live with posts on Mondays and Wednesdays only let me know. If a blog on Fridays from me is something that you look forward to, then let me know and I’ll keep them coming.

That’s all I’ve got for you today. If you wish to continue supporting my journey to becoming a full-time writer head over to my patreon page and consider becoming a patron. http://www.patreon.com/taquandacreates I’ll talk to you guys soon.

Journey To Full-Time Writer – OSTS – Chapter Eight

Hey 172 followers,

I’m back with another writing update. I haven’t done much in the last few days so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I am only on chapter eight in my journey to edit my upcoming book One Shot, Two Shots. With the way things are going it’s no surprise that I won’t be releasing this book when I originally planned. I really need to buckle down and get some serious work done. I have so many projects planned and procrastinating is just throwing me all of track.

With that said I think I’ll try to get some editing done today.

Dated: August 3, 2018

Journey To Full-Time Writer – So Many Projects

Hey guys,

So, I have decided that I’ve put way too much time between my projects. Not that that’s a bad thing but I’ve sort of been in a bit of a slump while taking my sweet time to publish again. With that said, I decided to no longer wait.

Right now I am editing OSTS book one in the THD series. Writing the first book in The Vampire Hunter series and plotting the first book in my Thicker Than Water series.

I know. So many projects. Will I be able to juggle them all?

We’ll just have to wait and see.

If you want to continue showing your support for my journey as a writer you can head over to my Patreon account. There I will share sneak peeks from what I’m working on with my Patrons.

Journey To Full-Time Writer – When Was The Last Time I Wrote?

Hey guys,

So, I was on a roll. Formatting one book, editing another… and then I stopped. I’m not really sure why. I haven’t been doing much of anything so I don’t have anything to post about.

Sorry.

How’s your day going?

Journey To Full-Time Writer – THD – Book One – Chapter One

Hey guys,

So last we spoke I told you that I was getting ready to edit chapter twenty-six in the first book to TFS. Well… I am completely done. Right now I am waiting for the back cover and spine to be designed and for it to be formatted and then we’ll start working on the release. While I wait for all of that I am starting my final round of edits with the first book in THD series.

Chapter one, here I come.

I’ll keep you guys posted.
