Two Weeks and Two Changes

Last Thursday, the company I worked for eliminated sixteen positions, including mine. It was a shock, but I have since determined that this means the universe has awesome things in store for me. I’ve been making daily to-do lists and weekly goals, and so far I feel pretty good. Every now and then stray thoughts will catch me by surprise (like the fact that I need to rewrite my bio now), but I’m keeping on top of things.

Over the last two weeks I have managed to write 2,520 words in The Dying Shrine. The count is so low (despite that 1,000-word day I promised!) because I have been busy launching Rich in Color AKA that secret project I’ve been talking about for the last couple of weeks.

The Rich in Color blog is dedicated to reading, reviewing, talking about, and otherwise promoting young adult fiction starring people of color or written by people of color. So far Crystal and I have posted three reviews, and we’re currently searching for co-bloggers to help us out. We’ve gotten a surprising amount of support from the YA lit community (at least in the parts I frequent), and I’m very excited about the project, especially the release calendar.

My creative goals for the upcoming week are to keep writing The Dying Shrine and to make sure we stay on target with our posting schedule for Rich in Color.
