Day 19 – Where have the last four days gone?

While I have been posting something this week, I have neglected my little diary sort of thing.

This week has been busy at work and I’ve still been fighting off this bug, which seems to combining with hayfever to cause all sorts of havoc. But still, plodding along.

I have managed to post up one lot of Tips & Tricks and one short story so far, now I just have to work out how to format things properly and I can start adding some more of both – I really wish there were more formatting options (does anyone know if there are somewhere).

Work will still be busy this coming week, as deadlines are approaching,but I will try to get something up once a day.

Needless to say, Camp NaNo is not going all that well, but I’m still plotting Unvamped 2* here and there, so there is still writing work being done. I will have to push a bit harder through next Camp Nano – July 2015 – and try to make up for it. I think my focus at the moment needs to be Unvamped 2* since all my thoughts and ideas are surrounding that, it seems silly to press a story when another one is bombarding my brain. But, I did have a great idea for something to do with Soul Wars* the other day, so obviously Unvamped 2* isn’t entirely taking over inside my head, which is nice to know given I’m trying to get into short stories now too. There are still 11 days left of Camp Nano though, so I haven’t given up hope I will reach 25,000 words. It just might not be the story I had intended to write. I only have just over 2,000 words per day to finish on time, so that’s manageable.

I suppose I will get onto that as soon as I’ve eaten! Am starving!

Thank you

On Friday, I passed the 100 cross-platform followers mark. So, I would like to thank everyone who has followed/liked me, and given me pride in what I’m doing – it’s because of you all that I have the motivation to keep myself going on these Social Media platforms despite not really knowing what I’m doing 🙂

Please stay tuned for more short stories, some more Tips & Tricks, and maybe some excerpts in the weeks to follow.

Also, stay tuned for a scheduled release date for unvamped!

Thanks again to everyone! Please share my pages with your friends 🙂

Day 15 – excitement abounds

I got my first weekly page update from my Facebook author page today, and while numbers may be considered low to some, I’m pretty impressed with how I’ve done. I have jumped 2,600% on new likes with 27 new ones. I’m up 397.6% on my weely total reach with 418. And, I’m up 184.2% on people engaged with 54. More and more people are following my Twitter page each day (or two lol) as well, so I really feel like I’m progressing with my social media presence.

My website views are reasonably steady too, so that’s quite good.

This week’s task is to get into posting some Tips & Tricks on writing – things I’ve learned over the years through university or private study and that have helped me. I don’t use it all, of course, but that’s not to say its not valuable advice for someone. I was going to try putting up new ones each day, but I think I will see how I go but hope to start with every two or three days.

Over and out for today.
