November has been the worst month for this blog. Lowest traffic and lowest engagement.
Because I haven’t done much on it.
I started this month working on a novel and I got about half way through it. 50% of what I wanted to get done. I had an opportunity to invest in something in my personal life and spent a lot of my free time learning more about that and deciding if that was a good place to put my money. ( like money, I like investments, and honestly it was a good departure from writing as I was starting to push myself too hard). I’ve still been writing my 1500 words a day, but they’ve taken a different, less story driven, form.
What have I learned?
Well, I love writing and reading cosmic horror. So I’m going to keep doing that but I also want to start writing another genre. Possibly Scifi or Fantasy. Something that I can alternate in and out of. I’ve got 4 books plotted out in the horror genre and 3 of them are 25-50% written. 1 is fully written and awaiting editing.
So I think going into next year I’m set up to do much better, book wise than I did last year. 2017 has been a lot of testing and set up and figuring out what does and doesn’t work. As well as releasing Cabals of Blood.
This has been a ramble from your friend Richard Klu. December I’ll have a lot more content. (I read 6 books in November)
