WIP Wednesday [January 2019]

Well, we’re already in the middle of January and it’s time for me to give an update of what I’ve been working on. So far, the month of January has been getting away from me. I keep thinking we celebrated the New Year just the other day and it’s already been a tad over two weeks.

I have to be honest, I haven’t been working on too much. There are a lot of projects to work on, but the biggest thing I need to do is prioritize. Even though I listed everything I want to 2019, I’m trying to figure out what can be done now. What should get done first.

One thing that I know for sure that I need to get done as soon as possible is my debut book, Sunday Morning.

Sunday Morning

It’s crunch time for me on this one. I’ve been giving the majority of my focus and attention on this collection of short stories. The writing and editing is done. I just have to do another proofread of the book. Other than that, it’s all technical stuff from here on out.

It’s taking me extra long because there’s a lot of research involved as I figure out how to self-publish. Hopefully it all goes well and I don’t mess anything up.

I’ve also been working hard on setting things up for my patrons. If you join my Patreon at the lowest tier by January 20, 2019, you’ll get a special promo-box when the book is released. So, yeah… lots of things to do!


I’m still working on submitting to at least two places this month. I submitted one thing and now I need to find someplace else. I have a few ideas, but I’m not sure if I’m going to go with all of them or just one. Normally I wouldn’t question it, but the entry fees add up.

That’s it for now.

That’s been my January so far and most likely will be the rest of my January. I feel like I already need to start planning my February.

What have you been working on this month? Let me know in the comments below. If you liked this post, please share it around.

  1. I think you are doing well.I only came back last week with a blog after I took a break to look after my children who were ill and I was too exhausted after that.I did however squeeze in getting my book edited,some research and meetings about self publishing.Just to feel better about myself I take it like I did some work.Now time to get on to rewrite the changes for my book.Good luck.

    • I hope your kids are feeling much better now! Sometimes you just have to step away and focus on family for a bit. It sounds like you’re still making great progress though. Good luck to you as well. 🙂
