So what’s going on with me this month?
Well I have a cold. My damn little carriers gave me the whole shebang of stuffy, runny nose and sore throat. I’m lucky it didn’t develop into the dry hacking cough I hate. And they’ve only started school less than two weeks. On the other hand, I did get to binge read some Highlander romances and binge watch Stranger Things on Netflix.
Right now, I’m also almost finish with the final romance novella “With a Touch.” Thanks to you all and your suggestions in last month’s IWSG post. I wrote the ending first. Then circled back to the beginning of the last chapter. Only thing left are the middle scenes which I usually waffle through. But here’s my writing progress last month.:

As I’m back from my blogging break I’m also trying to decide my new post schedule. With lots of edits and writing new stories coming in my near future, I won’t be able to post four times a month like usual. I’ve decided to post twice a month instead. But should I post the first and third Monday every month? Or the second and fourth Monday? Should the first Monday of the blog post be an early IWSG post? Or should I post on Wednesday, then post again on the second and fourth Monday? Which brings the number of posts three instead of two.
Anyways, I also have to start preparing for NaNoWriMo 2018. Months ago I thought I was going to write a desert young adult fantasy, tentative title, “Sheba.” But “Hellsgate” completely and definitely took over the position as this year’s NaNo novel. Here’s where you can view the storyboard on Pinterest. Here’s the aesthetic I created:
And here’s its theme song:

September 5 question – What publishing path are you considering/did you take, and why?
When I first started writing again I considered taking the traditional publishing route. Then I received the publishing contract for my first poetry chapbook. But I’d decided to self-publish instead. Now I want to pave a path of hybrid publishing. I want to self-publish my shorter works. And seek the traditional publishing route for my longer works. First, I have to finish writing, editing, polishing, querying, etc my other works.
