AmyBeth Inverness31,861The next short story in "The Cities of Luna" comes out on Saturday, December 6. I'll be promo-ing all day (and the entire next week, but that's irrelevant) culminating in a facebook party in the evening. After all's said and done, I'm coming over to G+, kicking off my shoes (thus...the event header image...) and hanging out with all of you while I recover from my hectic day. You don't have to hang with me at that specific time. You can just 'sign' my 'souvenir' book anytime._One Does Not Simply Walk Into Mordor_ Release Day After-Party2014-12-07 04:30:005

Dylan Cuffy10,308#WhatLiesAground Well...you've been waiting for days, so I'll give it to you now.Welcome to the final edition of what I now dub the Fab 500! Time to say hello (and happy Easter) to this bunch of fine folks. Eleven here, not the usual ten, because someone's account went bye-bye without a word:• +Louie Baur, +Empire Avenue stalwart; ask for him whenever you want aerial views of your car dealership• +Alexander Moschella, a furry who also thrives on +Fiverr• +Juan Reyes (poet hailing from Texas; not that +Juan Reyes, our last milestone man. Thanks, +A Long!)• +Karen Woodward (yet another lit geek; thanks, +Sarah Brown!)• +Philippe TREBAUL (circled through an Empire mission)• +Domenico Mallimo (who had another milestone of his own—15,000 followers—the other day)• +Chris Voss (who recently gave FB users a compelling reason to switch to G+ or elsewhere)• +Kenneth Burchett (follower #10,000 of mine; also, a spot in my Marigot Magic dedication)• +Ray Hamlet (Dominica's second-best on G+)• +Angie Person (another Caribbean user, this time from Aruba; thanks, 2014-04-20 21:55:195001012

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212

Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404

Dylan Cuffy2,404#WhatLiesAground Speaking of +Jens Graikowski, the circle showcase continues.You are now looking at The Chosen 44, a special group of people I rounded up on G+ back in February. To reiterate from the post that first introduced them, this is a circle of more-or-less active people and profiles whom I've followed for ages.I had only one purpose to use this circle in the first place: to show them some screencaps from "Mouse Warming", a 1952 Looney Tunes short so obscure that it was hard to get until much recently (when Warner Bros. included it in their Mouse Chronicles collection on DVD). This, for a rodent romance directed by none other than the talented Chuck Jones himself!Sad to say, that project's stalled out practically ever since I posted the credits. Maybe by tomorrow I'll resume it at long last--if we can get an alternative audio jack on the CPU working. But we shall prosper eventually!That's not all, folks! Tomorrow, you'll get to meet my Top 10 most relevant accounts on G+, and also some of the circle networks I rounded up at the start of the year.(To those in this circle: If you see "shared directly" with this message in your notifications, that means you're already included right here.)2013-05-31 16:38:4244102

Brad Leclerc28,193I haven't shared a circle in a while, and since I seem to have a flood of new circlers lately, I figure now might be a good time to get back into the habit. Starting with this circle of 150~ awesome people, which I have named my "Inner Sanctum".They post on a wide range of topics, from gaming, to science, to writing, to politics (across the spectrum, so you might not agree with everything they all say), to movies, to saucy photos, and everything in between. There are even a few slightly more well known and/or celebrity types in here, though they're all fairly active about posting, and interacting in general).They all really have only one thing in common: they make my G+ stream epic.You really can't go wrong with this circle. Trust me on that.2013-05-09 05:33:39151629

Blood Diamond is in the final stages of completion, which means it is time for me to decide which story I'm seriously pursuing for publication next. I have some choices.

So, poll time! (Maybe I just like polls.)

... Second Zero is actually City of Clocks. I'm obviously too tired from cleaning house to live today.

Here are my choices:

Project Zeta (Halfway drafted, Fifth transcribed.): Space Opera Science Fiction (The Earth is destroyed by volcanic activity; humans must venture abroad to survive... and one of the colonization projects runs into a major mishap...)

Zero (Halfway Transcribed/Drafted): Before Earth's destruction, a group of humans ventured abroad to serve as the custodians of a universal vault... in the far future, those on the planet have been kept in the equivalent of a technological ice age. There are those who will do... more »

Apparently my den is a mess because we're pack rats who buy non-perishables in bulk despite knowing the kitchen has a finite amount of space.

I'm at a loss of where I'm going to put all this junk stuff.

I'm also at a loss regarding the presence of three bulk packages of kraft dinner.

And glorious day! The husband is taking me out to lunch. :) (A reward for hard cleaning work?!)

As an aside, are you interested in more frequent posts (blog or otherwise) about the various things I am doing to dig out of the financial hellhole?

I'm totally willing to share what has worked, is working, and hasn't worked. I have no shame and I don't think it's something to be utterly private about (although some exact amounts will not be revealed.)

A bit of advice for home owners: If you have a mortgage, consider swapping to a every two weeks or weekly model. (In Canada, mortgages 'renew' every 5 years; it allows property owners to adjust their mortgages without refinancing or penalties.)

By paying every two weeks, I've already lowered the lifetime length of my mortgage by a year. (I have had this property for just under 4 years.)

So, if I switch to weekly payments, I'll be trimming off two years of the lifetime mortgage every 4 years, approximately. This is because I'm paying off the interest faster than I would if I were paying with standard monthly payments.

Accelerated payments (Every two weeks, every week) is a great way to spend the same amount of money but ultimately pay less interest.

So, just a thought if you're looking for long-term solutions for your financial things. (Once... more »

I brainstormed two short stories in my first break! Go me!! Now it's time for me to get back to cleaning work. Feeling really accomplished so far today. :)

I just hope the short stories prove... short. >.> I'm long-winded.

If you're interested in reading these short stories, I'll be making an anthology of them in a year from now, although patrons of my patreon will get advanced access to them. :)

Apparently I did so much cleaning yesterday that my arms are sore. Go figure.

I've knocked my first group of tasks right out of the park, plus added a few items (which I also knocked out of the park.)

My house won't be spotless by the time my mother arrives, but it might not be the disaster I feared, either. That's a good/promising start to the day!

I've earned my first break, and I'm going to spend it brainstorming short stories and novellas.

Bath and then bed. Tomorrow comes early.

My to-do list is epic, with my day broken into task groups to make sure everything gets done. I will be lapping from the kitchen to give myself a comfortable launch pad for my work.

If all goes well, I'll have a mix of drafting and transcription on the writing front and a clean house for when my mother arrives.

More likely, I won't get much writing work done at all, my house won't be clean, and people in Seattle will be wondering what is the source of that high-pitched screaming noise....

I'm making a to-do list for tomorrow so I'm sure I have the important stuff done before my mom arrives.

This is going to suck so, so hard.

But, I should be able to get enough done... I hope. Maybe. We'll see.

Still a few hours of work to make the place sparkly, but it'll do until I finish other parts of the house.

I don't think I'm going to reach my Project Zeta writing goal today. I'm too tired from cleaning. Tomorrow I will be able to work in the kitchen on my laptop, so it will be easier to sit down, write a few sentences, go back to work cleaning all day.

I'm okay with that. I've done really good work in the kitchen. (My husband did a double-take when he went in there for the first time after I started! woo!!)

Finished a baby scene of Project Zeta. Back to my cleaning efforts!

I think my next goal is to get the table cleaned off and everything on it put in appropriate places--or throw them away.

All Hail Junk Removal!

P.S.: I threw out an excess of twenty different tea varieties. They were stale, and there's no point in hoarding stale tea I won't drink because stale tea is disgusting.

The good news? While I did decimate the tea population, I do still have a very robust collection. Next week, once my mother leaves, I will be drinking at least 2 liters of tea a day. <3

I have completely liberated two drawers (one has become dedicated to my art supplies, the other for random kitchen doodads.) I have completely cleaned the one counter between the storage cupboards.

My beer glass collection is running through the dishwasher. They'll be going into a storage cupboard for a while, until my basement is done. Then they will take places of honor in the husband's bar.

Kitchen table is a mess, but it's covered with clean dishes and things I have to find homes for. Half the floor is scrubbed.

We'll be living in the kitchen when my mother visits, I think... that's not a bad thing, though. The kitchen is pretty comfortable.

Half of my kitchen floor has been through stage one mopping. Cats aren't sure what the fuck is going on. I'm taking a break for the moment because I pushed a bit too much mopping with my feet.

My kitchen is not quite two hundred square feet (of actual floor space.) So, it's a reasonably large-sized kitchen. Half done feels great, and I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I'm nowhere near where I wanted the house to be, but I'm getting there.

I'm going to change my habits so I can keep the house this way. Maybe find a playlist of certain dancing songs, and I clean until the playlist is over. That might work really well for me.Fast-beat music does help me stay focused on cleaning tasks.

I'll be honest. All of this is because I'm lazy and would rather be doing something else.

But, I promised I'd have the place completely cleaned, top to bottom, buy June 15. I wanted it done by tomorrow, but that's not happening. June 15? Totally reasonable/feasible.

Once I get it clean, the real job will be keeping it clean.___

Once my husband figures out what to do with the trash from cleaning ALL of the things and decluttering (dear god, I'm throwing out ALL of the things... I'm up to 10 bags of junk we just don't need) I'll be able to scrub my kitchen floor.

I mop with my feet. It is glorious. I dance to Carameldansen. I use rags, and I just dance my way across the floor. Then I mop up the mess and I have a clean floor!

It's pretty effective, actually....

But yeah. Clean kitchen will be happening today. Bathroom downstairs is one light bulb and a sink scrub from being cleaned too.

Between waves of cleaning, I'm working on grunt work--little tasks that need done but don't require dedication/full concentration.

I set up the templates for all of the print versions of my novels, with the exception of The Eye of God. (I will only do that one in print once I finish Royal Slaves.)

As a result, I am feeling really good about life, the universe, and everything right now!

I did financial work this morning. Then I talked about the financial work I did this morning.

Now I'm off to clean for a while. Wish me luck and things. Once I'm done cleaning (or can't handle any more) I will be working on Project Zeta for a while. 

My goal for PZ for today is 2,000 words.

A long-winded ramble about financing and how I'm approaching digging my household out of credit card debt.

I talk about my method, the challenges I'm going through, and how I'm dealing with the whole crappy situation.

Credit card debt sucks.

... which is why I picked the image of bloodshed for it.

I might be doing a celebratory dance. Husband's first paycheque with his new company hit the bank account. Since we only receive moneys once per month, I have to actually be really careful with the budget. (Before, we were paid every two weeks.)

... is this something people would like to see in a blog post? Because I can totally blog about this stuff.

So, I'm actually feeling pretty okay. I am fairly confident I will have a (mostly) cleaned kitchen by the time I go to bed tonight, which leaves me with one major room left to clean, one other room needing a partial cleaning (and if my mother minds the mess in the other rooms... I love her, but she can clean it herself.)

Allergies suck, which is really limiting how fast I can do this :(

Once done, I'll have both Requiem books ready for when I have the covers for print done. (Woo!)

I think one of the most difficult times for me as a writer is the time between projects. Right after I finish (or mostly finish) a project, there is this period of time where I can't concentrate on anything. I'm worn out from the previous project, and I'm typically indecisive about the next project.

In my case, I have three projects I'm particularly interested in working on.  Yet, despite wanting to work on them, despite needing to work on them, and despite the fact I totally have time to work on them, my brain is doing the equivalent of a 'I'm stupid' dance.

My evening will be dedicated to cleaning, but I really need to be productive with my day today.

Here's hoping I can kick myself out of this rut.

Blood Diamond is a day or two from being completely finished, so whenever +Chris Howard has time to finish the cover, I'll have a book to submit to Amazon and release to the wilds.

Woohoo!!

At 7 am, my husband wakes up on his own in a panic wondering why the alarm wasn't going off.

Let's just say my answer was neither polite nor coherent, and he left me alone for the next hour and a half.

Of course right before bed is when the idea for a novel (maybe novella?) hits, as well as a bunch of short story ideas.

Maybe I will do a series of novellas instead of a novel. That way, I do not need cover art right away--I can just push the files to my patreon for later.

I have had Nicole on the brain because of Blood Diamond, and I am thinking about writing out how her and Richard got together.

... Sometimes, the tax issues with the US are so easily resolved it's stupid. By that, I mean... it CAN really be that simple...

Two items on my to-do list for this week that I'm really not looking forward to:

1: US Taxes
2: US Passport Application

Arrrrrrrrrrrggghhhhhhh.

I forgot how much I love provolone cheese. At the rate I'm going, I'm going to turn into a cajun chicken and provolone pita wrap.

My next house cleaning project is to sort through my tea collection.

It has gotten a 'little' out of hand. So, I have to go through, ID the stale teas and remove them (keeping jars if they have jars) and find a new home for all of my good teas.

The tea has taken over one of my cabinets... completely.

Blood Diamond is in the final stages of completion, which means it is time for me to decide which story I'm seriously pursuing for publication next. I have some choices.

So, poll time! (Maybe I just like polls.)

... Second Zero is actually City of Clocks. I'm obviously too tired from cleaning house to live today.

Here are my choices:

Project Zeta (Halfway drafted, Fifth transcribed.): Space Opera Science Fiction (The Earth is destroyed by volcanic activity; humans must venture abroad to survive... and one of the colonization projects runs into a major mishap...)

Zero (Halfway Transcribed/Drafted): Before Earth's destruction, a group of humans ventured abroad to serve as the custodians of a universal vault... in the far future, those on the planet have been kept in the equivalent of a technological ice age. There are those who will do... more »

There are those who will do anything to acquire the knowledge kept within the vault, including genocide...

It falls to a pair of young men to save their world, the vault, and themselves from annihilation.

Rider of the Sun Horse (Completely Drafted, Quarter Transcribed.): Pretty much a fantasy action adventure with a cross-country race to put an end to a tyrant. >.> (It deals with one of Kalen's ancestors!)

City of Clocks (Third Transcribed/Drafted): After a hostile takeover of the island, a young man has to come to terms with who he once was in order to give them all a future. The island is breaking apart, and unless he figure out what is going on, they'll all die.___

I might have a cluttered house, but I'm well on my way to having every dish I own sparkly clean.

To give you an idea of what I've done today on the writing front, I spent most of my day implementing some 400 various proofing edits.

Ouch. My back is acting up like crazy. This is going to make cleaning 'fun'. By fun, I really mean painful and horrific.

Well, dishwasher is started, kitchen table is almost conquered, decluttering is in progress. <3

I might even have a kitchen by the end of the day at the rate I'm going... and a couple of tidy bathrooms.

Well, I caught up on sleep at least. Part of me wants to stay in bed and go back to sleep.

Time for me to start cleaning. Today, I shall have a kitchen.

Implemented eight chapters of proofreading corrections into Blood Diamond so far today. I've put in an hour and a half of solid work so far today. (I wasn't scheduled to wake up for another hour...)

So, I'm going to take my nap now. When I get up, I'll do a wave of cleaning. (My goal for today is to have the kitchen mostly cleaned up / reorganized.)

After that, more writing. I want to implement all of the editorial notes I have on Blood Diamond by the end of the day. That'll leave me in a pretty good place all in all.

I woke up way too early on a holiday--the good news? I'm getting a lot of writing work done this morning at any rate.

I'm definitely going to do my cleaning later in the day, after I take a nap. I'm going to ride the wave of writing productivity until I flag out.

The only downside? I'm running on a few hours of sleep. That's not exactly unusual for me, though. I did stay up a bit later than I had intended, all thanks to thinking I would sleep in. Oops?

Ugh. Morning allergies suck, especially when it's enough to wake me up. Oh well. I'm awake now, so I may as well do something productive until I decide it's nap time.

I have a huge bucket list of things I need to get done today. It includes approximately 3 hours of hardcore cleaning work, more if I can manage.

I was originally going to tackle the cleaning work in 30 minute chunks, but I'm rethinking that initial plan. Most of my tasks today aren't all that intensive, so I may just do the cleaning this evening in one fell swoop.

Either way, there will be loads of cleaning done, the majority of it in my kitchen. I kinda wish I had camouflage paint so I could dress the part. It'll be a war zone. Bwahahaa.
