Distracted and Disappointed

I’ve fallen way behind on my writing. It’s depressing to realize how far behind I’ve fallen. I kind of have an excuse though it doesn’t catch me up any. I’ve been spending a lot of time of late working on an app for indie authors called Inscriba. It will allow authors to upload their book image and details about the book to the app and other authors can rate it. Data from the users will allow authors to identify the types of people who are likely to most appreciate your book and improve sales outcomes. At least that’s the theory. It should be out before the end of this month.

Anyway, my writing is way behind. I had hoped to have my first two books in the Kindle store by now but nope. The first one is 90% done and the second is close to having the first rough draft done. I’m disappointed but have option to pick up and push forward.

Since I’m temporarily in Chicago, I managed to rejoin my old Meetup writer’s group. That has been motivating me. In fact, the piece I submitted this past week had one of the other  writers in tears because she was so moved. I was surprised and happy. I must be getting better 🙂

Anyway, I am not going to overpromise and underdeliver again. I will just try to write a few words each day and see where it takes me.
