Song mood: Ordinary World by Duran Duran. The song has been playing in my head, but I couldn’t quite figure out the title or who it was by until I googled a lyric. I would mistake Duran Duran for the Thompson Twins. There is something about eighties music that isn’t seen today, like everyone was trying to do something different in the most different way. Duran Duran, if you watch this video anyway looked like a cross between electronic and hair bands. Growing up, hair bands were my favorite, once I got past the sixties kick I was on (thank you, George McFly and Back to the Future).
Tomorrow, I get to play the part of the world’s worst mechanic. At least the part was only $15.00. I watched a couple videos and the fix looks simple enough.
Plans for this weekend besides the usual.
1. Brainstorm for book 2 of the series. Brainstorm for the mystery. Think up of any other story that I might want to write.
2. Try to get outlines for four books but be okay with just one.
3. Start editing the current project.
4. Work on the October short story.
Now that I have momentum of writing a second draft that I like, I need to set up the other books. I need to write down tasks. Stuff that I feel will be needed to complete the project and make it read worthy.
I know the first book isn’t going to be that good. It probably won’t do to well on sales. Which is why I’m not going to promote it that much. The process is hook and crook. The learning comes from doing.
The important thing is to just get material out there. After enough books have been self published, like when I get to book seven, then I can think of stuff like setting up a Patreon account. But that is in the future. Right now I just need to focus on the task on hand. Get the first project done. Get the second book written.
