As we start a new week, I find myself very worried about money, but still optimistic overall. I have a little bit of work, with a vague promise of more on the horizon. I haven’t been paid yet for my first week, just submitted my hours for the second week, and we embark on the third.
The other job I was supposed to start is on hold, due to the fact that they can not complete the background check, because the courts in San Francisco are not open. So that means I have space for more editing or writing work, if you happen to know of any work that needs doing.
I’m on Upwork, but will work with folks outside of that as well.
So other than that bit of the work I’m doing for one client, I’ve been working on The Blood Witch. I hope to have this final edit done by the weekend. Which is when the work to sell the book begins. Which starts, as most things do, with research. Then query letters, which will hopefully lead to an agent, who can help with that whole selling part.
As I do, I’m also watching a lot of documentaries, particularly true crime documentaries. I found a motherlode of new-to-me tv shows and movies on Hulu.
I hope you and your families are staying safe and not going a little stir crazy. Be smart, as we start opening things back up. This virus has not yet done its worst, and I fear that loosening restrictions too quickly will send a wrong message to too many people, opening us up for a strong resurgence of victims. Mask up. Wash your hands. Stay home if you can, and don’t let people closer than 6 feet. You never know whose life you might be saving. It could be your own.
I love you, Readers! Happy Monday!
