About Kit

turtleduckfi7It is a little known fact that Kit was raised in the wild by a marauding gang of octopuses. It wasn't until she was 25 that she was discovered by a traveling National Geographic scientist and brought back to civilization. This is sometimes apparent in the way that she attempts to escape through tubes when startled. Her transition to normalcy has been slow, but scientists predict that she will have mastered basics such as fork use sometime in the next year. More complex skills, such as proper grocery store etiquette, may be forever outside her reach.

Turtleduck Press’s new anthology, Under Her Protection: Stories of Women to the Rescue, is now available! Go here or here to purchase this collection, or here for more information!

This anthology was a joy to write for, and I’m actually already planning a novel based off my story for it. I think you’ll really enjoy it too, so go give it a look!

I don’t know what to do with myself, Squiders. The husband and the no-longer-that-small, mobile one have gone on a father/son sort of trip, so aside from some contract work (~4 hours worth) and taking care of the very small, nonmobile one, I have the whole weekend to myself.

It’s been years since I’ve had so little responsibility.

The problem is that there’s so much I could do. Here’s a sampling:

  • Writing Activities, including:
    • Write this month’s segment for my serial story
    • Edit a short story I wrote a few weeks back and get it ready for submission
    • Send out a round of short stories to various publications
    • Edit my first nonfic book; outline and start writing the next
    • Work through a flash fiction writing course
    • Brainstorm and outline a series of shorts set in my high fantasy trilogy world
    • Work on (and hopefully finish) my out-loud edit of my YA paranormal novel
    • Plan out the rest of the year in terms of writing goals and plans
  • Marketing Activities, including:
    • Catch up on an author marketing podcast
    • Work on tweaking the description/summary and Amazon categories for Shards
    • Continue putting together my email list
    • Figure out if it’s worth it to continue on Patreon or if I should move those benefits to email list
    • Work through various marketing books/posts/podcasts/webinars I’ve been hoarding
    • Continue poking Pinterest and seeing if I can organize it better
  • Non-writing Activities, including:
    • Catching up on TV, such as Doctor Who, Deep Space Nine, and others
    • Hanging out with friends
    • Getting back to my scrapbooking
    • Doing puzzles
    • Playing computer games
    • Reading

There’s probably more that I’m forgetting. Of course, I can’t get everything done, and I’m a little worried, with so much unstructured time, that I won’t even make a dent. They left at lunch time; this afternoon I’ve taken the car to the dealership (see previous post), picked up a friend’s share of fruit/vegetables from a local farm since they’re out of town, read 50 pages in my current book (The Devil in the White City), and did the final line edit on a short story that will be published on Sept 1. I’ve also half-started a gazillion other things, which doesn’t bode well. Oh, and listened to two and a half episodes of a marketing podcast.

So I need to break things down and focus. Because who knows when I’ll get the chance again?

Suggestions, Squiders? Anything I should do while I’m free?
