IWSG: Writing Productivity

Thank you to Alex Cavanaugh and the congenial co-hosts for December: Pat Garcia,Sylvia Ney,Liesbet @ Roaming AboutCathrina Constantine, and Natalie Aguirre!

December’s question: Are there months or times of the year that you are more productive with your writing than other months, and why?

In the past, the demands of my university day job used to lighten in the summer months, and I would write more then. Now, my day job is steady throughout the year, so my writing has the same pace year-round: LEISURELY.

Although my writing pace has slowed, I’m thrilled that the wonderful Jessica Royer Ocken took less than two weeks to edit my latest novel, Rivals. Thanks to the speedy critique of Nicki Elson as well! I’m now working on cover design, formatting, and…

Audiobooks are the only format I read these days, and I’m eager to develop one of my own. If you’ve made an audiobook, any tips for me?

Happy Holidays to all writers!

  1. Wow, that’s pretty dang interesting, to create your own audiobook. I’ve never even though about broaching into that, because it seems like there are so many other things involved than just writing. Wishing you all the best with this!

    1. Thanks, Natalie. I’m having a lot of trouble commenting on blogger if there aren’t pop-up comments, but I’m going to try to figure out a way to do it. I appreciate you stopping by, and thank you for co-hosting!

    1. Hi, Pat, thanks for co-hosting! I tried to comment on your blog but I’m not sure the comment went through. I’m hiring two narrators for the female and male romantic leads, and I’m excited about it!

  2. I have a friend that lives with ear plugs and listens to audio book nearly 24/7. Huge audience. A published author friend of mine learned how important it is to write the book with the idea it could/will be an audio book. Her printed book contained names and locations that were mispronounced by the narrator. The miss spoken words undermined her credibility.

    Sounds like you are building a great team. Extra nice to have an actor sister on your team. Wishing you the best of luck.

    1. Lynn, I’m similar to your friend in that audiobooks are the only way I read these days. I love to listen while I walk, drive, or clean (the rare times that occurs). Good to know about mispronunciations. Probably the toughest word to pronounce in my manuscript is libero, a volleyball position. Thanks for the positive vibes!
