Triple Check Before Posting

There are things I’d love to say about authors behaving badly.  Or perhaps, more accurately, cluelessly.  (General note: coercing or buying reviews, never a good idea.  And the Internet has a very, very long memory.  And avoiding the negative implications of something by going on the attack doesn’t make others forget like you wish it would.)

Anyway. I don’t feel like being the ethics or morality police today.  Live by the sword, die by the sword and all that…

What I can say is that I really, really wish companies offering publicity or editing services to writers would check the spelling on their posts before making a post offering said services on a writers’ forum.

You know what I’m talking about, right?  “We meet all you’re editing needs!”

Well, no, I don’t think you do.  Because I need someone who knows their your from their you’re…

Oh well.  At least it makes it easy to know whose services I don’t need to pay for, right?

Now to turn my attention to the two novels I want to write in the next month.  Hmm…Wonder how that’s going to turn out?

Minor digression here.  I’ve been in a productivity slump lately.  I pubbed six non-fiction titles this month and then just sort of coasted to a slow pace after.  But this is what I told myself: I’m not allowed to quit or give up on full-time writing until I hit 1,000,000 words written and 100 titles published.

I have 152,000 words and thirty-five titles to go.  Hoping to hit the word count goal by the end of June before I leave for a writing conference.  If I stay on this novel plan, I don’t know when I’ll hit the title goal.  Maybe a few years from now?  Haha…

(Oh, and since I criticized someone else’s word usage, you just know there has to be at least one glaringly obvious error in this post…)
