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: 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.)

Book Review: Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania: A Book Review by Jessica Cauthon - www.jccauthon.com #reading #books #bookreview

Pennsylvania by Michael Bunker

My rating: 4 out of 5 stars

On first seeing this book, I thought it would be okay, just something to read and kind of rejuvenate my writing mind, but it surprised me. I’m thinking a Science Fiction book about the Amish is a bit of an oxymoron, but the author pulled it off really well.

I don’t think the exact date was ever given for the setting of the novella, but it’s definitely three or four centuries in the future. The Amish are being crowded out by all the English (all us Americans who love our technology), so the main character is about to embark on a new pioneering voyage to a planet called New Pennsylvania. But things don’t go to plan. And what he discovers in the end (from what I can understand) is a bit chilling.

The ending is the only part I really am bothered by. It was a left a little too dubious. The best I can tell, when he was loaded in the shuttle to go to New Pennsylvania, he was really transported to a future world. That’s the best I can understand. I think if the ending was a little more clear, I could give it 5-stars.

I’m not sure if he has written any sequels as I only finished this book late last night, but I am going to try to find some just to see if the question is ever answered.
