#SoCS – Playing with Matches


It has occurred to me that many board games, both electronic and oldies but goodies like finding the same two cards, actually encourage playing with matches.

Think about it.

Honestly, I had no idea how many words start with “ma” until I sat down to write this post. I was like, how do I choose?

So I enjoyed writing my NaNo novel so much that I’ve decided to write a sequel to it. I started it today. I’m hoping to get it finished, slowly but surely this time, by the end of January. If all goes well, I’ll be able to come up with a third book to make it a trilogy. My eventual goal is to publish at least three books per year. I know I have them in me. And I think I’ve found the trick to finding the time to write them. Every day at breakfast. Writing less than 900 words a day–that’s half an hour per day–I can write six novels per year.

Finding time to edit them, on the other hand, is a bit more of a challenge at this point.

What I really need is more exercise. I have to try to get out and walk. Fortunately, Christmas is coming. Lots of walking to be done at the mall.

I bought another colouring calendar. I’m a glutton for punishment.

Okay, it’s one in the morning. I’m a day late again for my own prompt. Not only that, but I just realized I didn’t even get my own bonus points.

I have management issues. Obviously.

  1. Lol! Good luck with the novels! 3 a year is a lot if you can do it! xo


  2. Good luck on your new novel.


  3. Do you edit your own books by yourself?


  4. Isn’t random the plan for a SoCS? Of course you got a new coloring calendar!


  5. I’ll split my bonus points with you, Linda. Playing with matches was a bad habit/huge fun when I was a child. My mother was certain I would someday start a large fire. Good luck with the sequel.


  6. Random is exactly how we love these posts!
