A Week in Review: February 11, 2018

A Week in Review: J. C. Cauthon - http://www.jccauthon.com #amwriting #plans #nonfictionwriting In all honesty, I did not manage to complete a lot this week.  Well, not on the writing projects that I wanted to focus on.  See, it takes a lot of time to schedule a year’s worth of writing prompts to a blog.  At least, it does for me.  (If you know of some super quick short-cut for mass posting, please let me know!)  I spent the entire week scheduling the last of The Daily Prompts for the rest of the year.

It’s one thing off my To-Do list, and believe me, that sucker is massive.

We also had an incident that required a trip to the dentist and minor surgery on my oldest son, so I had to deal with that and the aftermath this week as well.  He is fine, though.  It is all fixed, and he is feeling much better.

So, this week’s update and upcoming plans are very similar to last week’s list of things I want to get done this week.  I’m planning to reintroduce my genre prompt collections, and I’m focusing on the science fiction and fantasy collection first.  So, figuring out how I want to format that and what types of prompts I wish to include in that collection are the two tasks on my To-Do list for this pen name this week.  (Everyone has their own list per project that I work through.)

So, that’s it for now.  Tune in every morning for your daily writing prompt, and feel free to share them with me via the comment section or by contacting me.  Either way, I love to read them.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Weekly Update: February 4, 2018

J. C. Cauthon's Weekly Writing Update - http://www.jccauthon.com #amwriting #plans #nonfictionwritingGood morning, everyone!  Once again, I must apologize for falling off the map and disappearing.  A lot of decisions had to be made at the end of the year (2017), and with the holidays, the continual cold (winter is definitely not my favorite time of the year), and with the continual colds that plague my children every winter, it took me a but longer to make those decisions than I had planned.

As of December 31, 2017, there will be no more workbooks released, no more monthly prompt sets released, and the yearly edition will be released the month before the year begins.  For example, The Daily Prompt 2018 was released in December of 2017.

I am, once again, toying with the idea of releasing genre collections throughout the year.  I tried this in 2016, and although the books gained some popularity, the collections were not well-planned beforehand, and the idea fell apart.  This time around, I plan for each genre to have at least 300 prompts per released book to make it more substantial, and they will be published throughout the year, but I still have a lot of planning to do.

Other than that, there has not been a lot happening under my J. C. Cauthon “hat.”  That’s what I call my many pen names.  My fiction “hats” are all starting new projects this month as well, so don’t forget to check out those blogs if the genres interest you.

Toodaloo for now!  I’ll check in again next week–hopefully, with more news.

Weekly Update: December 4

So, I’m realizing here lately that I am not doing so well with the remembering to update everyone on what has been happening here this week.  This was on my list of things to do, but somehow, I missed it.

The Daily Prompt 2017

The Daily Prompt 2017 comes out this week.  It includes every creative writing prompt from the 2017 monthly series.  This book will be available at Amazon, and you will be able to purchase it in e-book format and in paperback.

Another Year of Blog Prompts

This is taking me longer to complete than I care to admit.  I have been working on the graphics for the daily prompts that I share on the blog for almost two months.  It’s a simple copy & paste job with a little bit of fiddling to make it fit in the margins of the background graphic, and for some reason, I just can’t seem to plant my behind in the chair and get it done.

I will have these ready to roll out in time for 2018, so don’t worry–you won’t miss a single day of writing.

That’s All, Folks

Other than that, it has been a fairly quiet week here in my home office.  The house is decorated for Christmas, the kids are ready for school to be out, and there is a somewhat winter chill in the air.  (There are days where I actually have to wear my winter jacket in the morning.  I’m in t-shirts by the end of the afternoon, however.)
