First off, I need to gush just a little bit. The other night I officially dropped my word count below 140k.
I know it's still a long way from 110k, but that wall has been staring at me for months. I'm just happy to be over it.
Now, that aside, I wanted to talk a little bit about what else I'm doing besides writing and editing The Paladin. After a few months of waiting and wondering, I'm finally getting a chance to do some game reviews for a website. I won't go into too many details at the moment until it's published, but I must say that I'm super excited. I get to play a video game AND claim I'm being responsible!
Seriously though, this is step one of setting up a side deal to help support myself through writing. I'd like to think that this blog has helped me develop the discipline to focus on writing something other than my fiction work, and that I'll be able to channel that into writing for this website (and hopefully more!)
Once my living situation is a bit more settled down, I'd also like to use these reviews to revamp my YouTube channel. If I'm getting review copies of games, I might as well milk them for all I can, right? Plus, it'll be a good chance to utilize my editing and voice over skills, as well. Oh yeah. I'm a Jack of All Trades, baby.
That's all for today. Hope everything is absolutely stellar for you guys!
And remember, be excellent to each other!
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
